"I can't wait to start training him," 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh said of rookie QB Colin Kaepernick. "As soon as that lockout ends, we'll start working with him.
"All I want him to do is come in and compete and just get better each and everyday. If he does that, that will equal success for him. He's got the talent and the ability to be a starter in this league. But that's all up to him. He'll compete with Alex Smith and the rest of our quarterbacks.
"The best guy will play. The guy who practices the best, the guy who plays the best will play. There won't be any games, there won't be any politics. We're going to throw the balls out there and let those guys have at it."
