Default Kaepernick mum on Smith trade

Quote:
on March 1, 2013, 9:20 AM EST On Wednesday, news broke that the 49ers have a deal in place to trade quarterback Alex Smith to the Chiefs. On Thursday, the man whose stellar play sent the former No. 1 overall pick to the bench participated in a media car wash in support of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign, which is being supported in part by a major donation from one of Kaepernick’s sponsors, Nike. Kaepernick appeared on Pro Football Talk, and Erik Kuselias (after spending plenty of time on the “Let’s Move” campaign) asked for Kaepernick’s reaction to the news in a one-on-one (which oddly at one point in the interview became a one-on-two). “Well there’s really no response right now,” Kaepernick said. “At this point nothing can be done until March 12th so whether he’s with us or not he’s gonna be a great quarterback but ultimately what we’re here today for is the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign.” Erik approached the topic from a different angle. “Well once again there’s nothing to be said about it because no actions can be taken so I mean right now the biggest deal is that we’re here for the ‘Let’s Move’ campaign,” Kaepernick said. Erik tried a third time, asking Kaepernick for something/anything in response to the news that, if the deal becomes official, Smith will be gone. “I mean once again there’s no response, nothing can be done at this point so it’s as if nothing has happened,” Kaepernick said. While Kaepernick doesn’t have to answer the question, the give-and-take of the interview-for-a-plug game typically entails the person who is being paid by a sponsor to talk providing something more meaningful than talking points prepared for the player by someone else. And it’s just a little odd that Kaepernick would have nothing to say about the reality that, regardless of whether the reported trade goes through, it’s now crystal clear that Smith won’t be on the 49ers in 2013.

Something like this... Alex was a great teammate and I'm grateful for his support. I wish him all the best of luck in Kansas City.

He's right... There's nothing to say at this time. The trade hasn't happened. The media is jumping the gun on this and are asking him to talk about things before they happen. I'm surprised the league hasn't vetoed this trade as a result of tampering. Kaep saying nothing means he has nothing to do with it.

I stand corrected... It's not official so nothing can be said.
