Colin Kaepernick appears to not agree with Travis Scott's Super Bowl show

There are new developments coming from Colin Kaepernick’s camp regarding Travis Scott’s agreement to perform in the Super Bowl halftime show.

The former 49ers quarterback has been on social media confirming that there is not mutual understanding or respect between the two. 

Kaepernick’s girlfriend Nessa Diab, and others close to the former quarterback, have been vocal on social media refuting Variety’s original report that both Scott and Kaepernick had reached an understanding about the performance. Kaepernick has not made a statement of his own but has retweeted their comments on his own account. 

Several artists have boycotted performing at the Super Bowl including Jay-Z, Rhianna and Cardi B. as a result of Kaepernick remaining unemployed by the league since the end of the 2016 season. 

Scott reportedly held out from agreeing to perform with Maroon 5 until the NFL agreed to donate $500,000 to Dream Corps, a nonprofit focused on social justice initiatives. 

Dream Corps is the organization that received money from the NFL as a result of the Player’s Coalition agreement with the league in 2017. Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins led the group with Anquan Boldin through the process. 

Disagreements between the group and former 49ers safety Eric Reid, Chargers tackle Russell Okung and New York Giants safety Michael Thomas caused them to withdraw their involvement from the group. 

The two sides still do not agree with each other. Some of their differences reside in Kaepernick’s lack of inclusion in the group as well as his lack of employment by the league. Because of that history, a large donation to Dream Corps would not appease Kaepernick or garner favor. 

NFL rumors: 49ers' George Kittle ruled out for rematch vs. Cardinals

NFL rumors: 49ers' George Kittle ruled out for rematch vs. Cardinals

Whatever mystery there was surrounding George Kittle's health status for the 49ers' Week 11  game against the Cardinals has now been solved.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported late Saturday night that San Francisco's All-Pro tight end will not play Sunday against Arizona, citing a source.

The aforementioned mystery was some of the 49ers' own doing. After Kittle was listed as day-to-day at the beginning of the week, San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan told Cardinals reporters on Thursday that Kittle would not play Sunday, only to have the organization walk those comments back hours later. 

Kittle sat out the 49ers' Week 10 loss to the Seahawks. He originally was injured on San Francisco's first offensive play in the Week 9 win in Arizona, but still managed to catch six passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in that 28-25 victory. Kittle leads all 49ers' pass-catchers in receptions (46), receiving yards (541), yards after the catch (300) and first downs (28).

Ross Dwelley is expected to start in Kittle's place at tight end against the Cardinals on Sunday. While Shanahan and the 49ers have confidence in Dwelley, there's no question San Francisco's offense will be negatively impacted by Kittle's absence.

49ers-Cardinals odds, predictions: Betting lines, picks for NFL Week 11 game

Everything hasn't been coming up roses for the 49ers in the last week thanks to some injuries and an overtime loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The team will face the Cardinals for the second time in three weeks in Week 11. After failing to sack Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray in the first meeting, Nick Bosa will try to do better the second time around.

Murray has been sacked 31 times, which ranks as the third-most in the league. San Francisco, on the other hand, ranks second in the NFL in total sacks (35) and yards allowed per game (251.6).

Here is how NFL writers across the league see the 49ers-Cardinals game shaking out:
