He said in an interview with the media Thursday that having Steve Johnson, Brandon Lloyd and Bruce Ellington to go with Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis and Quinton Patton should open up the passing game.
"I think it gives us an opportunity as an offense to do a lot more," Kaepernick said.
When asked if he would you like to see the offense start tilting more toward the passing game, Kaepernick said: "I want to see this offense do whatever it has to do to win games. That’s really what’s most important, but I’m always good to throw a few more balls."
He added that the offense has the "capability" to become an elite, prolific passing attack.
One reason for the change is because
"It's his second full year starting, fourth year in the system," Roman said. "He's seeing things now that he didn't see before. He's right on track."
Roman added that the offense will be more prepared for every situation they're faced with. Because the defense isn't quite as loaded as it's been in the past thanks to some injuries and question marks, the offense might have to shoulder more of the load to win games, meaning put points on the board.
The 49ers averaged a league-low 26.1 pass attempts per game and scored 25.4 points per game (11th best) in 2013.
There will be no charges filed against
"No charges, no indication that a criminal act was committed," Ed Griffith of the state attorney's office said. "She was alleging that she may have been the victim of a sexual assault, and there was no evidence."
The announcement brings a conclusion to an episode in which Kaepernick maintained his innocence from the beginning.
Per the site, only $13.073 million is guaranteed. The rest of the $61 million will be converted into full guarantees on a yearly basis. Every year, before April 1, the Niners have the right to either keep him for what's on the contract or cut him. For instance, next year he's guaranteed $12.4 million, but only if the Niners keep him on the roster by the beginning of April, 2015. Kaepernick could also receive the yearly salaries if he's injured.
There's also a de-escalator clause in the contract where Kaepernick loses $2 million in guarantees per season if he doesn't play in the Super Bowl or isn't named first- or second-team All-Pro.
The deal is reportedly worth six years for $126 million with $60 million guaranteed. He was scheduled to make less than $1 million this season prior to the extension.
Kaepernick has led the 49ers to the Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game in consecutive years since taking over for Alex Smith midway through the 2012 season.
