Comments Off on Colin Kaepernick Says He’s Faster After Working With Olympians

The Green Bay Packers are still chasing 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick broke the NFL record for most rushing yards in a game for a quarterback, when he rushed for 181 yards against those same slow Green Bay Packers in the playoffs.

Kaepernick has some bad news for his opponents in 2013.  He’s gotten a whole lot faster.  According to Peter King of TheMMQB.com, Kaepernick spent the offseason, working with a crew of track and field athletes that includes Dwight Phillips, the 2004 Olympic gold medalist in the long jump.

I trained with a few Olympic runners and jumpers,” Kaepernick said. “Just to try to get a little bit faster, a little bit better. Anything I could do to try to get a little bit better and stay ahead of the competition. I think the biggest thing was the form of running and how to be more efficient when I run. I feel like that has helped me to this point, and it’s something I’m trying to improve on more and more, but I think those few weeks with them were very valuable.”

I don’t think the NFL is ready for an even fast Colin Kaepernick.
