SANTA CLARA, Calif. Johnathan Cyprien Jersey . -- Colin Kaepernick insists he just happened to pull on a pair of socks with dollar bill prints all over them Wednesday morning -- before he learned he had struck a new fortune with the San Francisco 49ers. "I had these on before I found out," he quipped. "Luck of the draw." In the tattooed quarterback, the Niners have their franchise man for the long haul. One of the NFLs most dynamic young playcallers, Kaepernick received a $126 million, six-year contract extension Wednesday that keeps him with the organization through the 2020 season. The deal includes $61 million in guaranteed money, a person with knowledge of the contract said, speaking on condition of anonymity because terms werent disclosed. The sides had made it a top priority to get a deal done before the start of training camp next month. "They were able to get it done six weeks earlier than what I think everyone thought," Kaepernick said. "Im very excited to have it done at this point and we dont have to worry about talks or anything like that moving forward." Kaepernick, whose quick ascent to the ranks of the NFLs elite under centre has earned him rock star status, had been due to make less than $1 million this season. Now, the 26-year-old Kaepernick instantly becomes one of the leagues richest stars. "Im always striving to be in that group. An elite group in the NFL. Not necessarily pay, but as far as a player. Whatever comes along with that comes along with it," Kaepernick said. "Im very grateful for it. ... I dont think my motivation is money-driven." Since taking over the starting job from Alex Smith two years ago, Kaepernick led the 49ers to their first Super Bowl in 18 years after the 2012 season -- losing by three points to Baltimore -- and then to the NFC championship game last season, a three-point defeat to the rival and eventual Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Kaepernick even offered a shoutout to 2005 No. 1 overall draft pick Smith, saying, "I dont think I would be able to be at this point so quickly if he hadnt been such a great mentor to me and helped me along with things." Kaepernicks next mission: "Trying to win as many Super Bowls as I can," he said. "I think thats your goal as a player to try to win a Super Bowl every year that youre playing." A second-round draft pick out of Nevada in 2011, Kaepernick has thrived under former NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh -- and the coach has said how much he wants the mobile, strong-armed QB around for the long haul. Accomplishing an extension before the season is a big deal as the team begins its first year in $1.2 billion Levis Stadium at team headquarters. "I really expect a real breakout year for Colin. Athletically, he looks bionic," Harbaugh said during the organized team activity last week. "If you all remember The Six Million Dollar Man, thats what it looks like to me. Hes very gifted and he always has been. He has the look and feel of a guy whos really going to break out, even more so than he already has. Im really excited about everything about his game right now." Greetings and kind words came via Twitter posts from teammates. "Congrats to my boy (at)kaepernick7 on the extension! (hashtag)deserving (hashtag)hardestworkingdudeiknow," wrote fullback Bruce Miller. In a sensational playoff debut in January 2013 against Green Bay, Kap -- as they call him -- used his speedy legs to run for a quarterback playoff-record 181 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Then, in a season-opening win against the Packers last September, the strong-armed San Francisco QB threw for a career-best 412 yards and three scores. "Colins hard work and dedication have played an integral role in the recent success of the 49ers organization," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said in a statement. "His work ethic, leadership and on-field production have positively influenced our team, and we look forward to his continued growth in all areas. Our organization always looks to reward our players for their contributions and commitment to the team." Harbaugh remained optimistic of getting a new deal done, while Kaepernick said his only focus was on football and he was leaving it to his agents to do the rest. The quarterback had said he sought a "fair" deal. He is regularly the first to arrive at work each morning and the last one off the field. Kaepernick has completed 382 of 639 passes for 5,046 yards and 31 touchdowns. He also has started all six post-season games in which he has appeared, earning four wins and passing for 1,374 yards and seven touchdowns. Kaepernick said last week he hopes a Miami investigation from April that names him will soon be over. He said that matter didnt affect his thoughts about whether it would affect the extension. "That wasnt something I was worried about," Kaepernick said. "I let my agents handle all the talking." Last month, Miami Police released two calls to a 911 dispatcher saying a woman identifying herself as Jesus was lying naked in a bed and refusing to leave. The callers said the woman wanted to spend time with a third man who wasnt there. Police say the players also involved in the case are 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette. None of them has been charged with any wrongdoing. "Were just really thrilled for the Kaepernick family. Theyre amazing people," agent Scott Smith said after Kaepernicks news conference. "Were just so happy for them. Were really grateful of all the hard work the 49ers put into it." So, about his timely sock selection? "To be honest, one of my friends gave them to me, gave me a box of socks," he said. "No idea what brand or what company, but they were in my drawer." Kevin Byard Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Eric Decker Jersey . This week they discuss Russias mens hockey team, the ineptitude of the IOC handling the Nicklas Backstrom situation, John Tortorellas many apologies, and Canadas strong showing in curling. . - Buffalo Bills running back C.Heading into the final week of the MLS season Vancouver Whitecaps playoff fate is in their own hands, and given the tumultuous offseason at the club that is a big achievement in itself. The Whitecaps know a win at home against Colorado Rapids on Saturday (live on TSN) will ensure they finish fifth in the West and face a road trip to either Real Salt Lake or FC Dallas in the Western Conference Knockout Round. There are other scenarios as well - put simply, the Caps just need to match whatever result Portland Timbers gets at FC Dallas to finish above their Cascadia rivals. Having come this far anything other than postseason qualification would be a massive letdown, but in my view whatever the outcome, when the dust settles this season can be classed as a success. The Whitecaps have won the Cascadia Cup and also qualified for the 2015/16 Champions League, but most importantly, they have started to build a strong foundation for future success as they aim to become a club that can challenge at the top of the Western Conference on a yearly basis. They have a plan. They have an identity. They have strong leadership under the ever impressive rookie head coach Carl Robinson, and they have the base of a very good squad. Someone asked me last week: who has been the Whitecaps best signing this season? The fact that question is difficult to answer speaks to the strength of Robinsons recruitment and gives faith that future additions will continue to make the club stronger. They also have a commitment to developing young talent and giving those players a chance. Pedro Morales will likely win the team MVP award because he leads the way with goals and assists, but Matias Laba has had an outstanding season and has shown himself to be a league-leader in his position. And while much of the talk in Vancouver has been about the lack of a goalscorer - a position that will be addressed in the offseason - the midseason additions of Mauro Rosales and Kendall Waston have played a vital role in getting the Caps to where they are now. So where are they now? They are a young team still with plenty to learn but they have proved tthis year they have the ability to live with the top teams in the league. Adoree Jackson Jersey. The performance at Seattle two weeks ago was in my mind without doubt their best since joining Major League Soccer. It was a game that showed they have started to grow up as a squad. Four weeks ago, after the disheartening 3-0 loss at Portland, it seemed the playoffs would be out of reach, but since then the players have shown immense character and belief to go four games unbeaten, with three wins and three clean sheets along the way. It has been, and will continue to be a steep learning curve for Carl Robinson and his players, but under difficult circumstances they have already shown themselves to be up for the challenge. This weekend, they face a Colorado team that they are expected to beat but these games have often been a challenge for the Caps this season. The fact they have already lost to Colorado twice this year, couldnt beat Chivas in three meetings and struggled to a 0-0 draw against Montreal Impact highlights their inability to win matches when they are clear favourites. With a few more points against those teams below them in the standings, they would already be safely in the top five. Thats the next step for this team. Next season they need a Plan B and Plan C for when things arent working. But back to what matters right now and the task in hand on Saturday. The Whitecaps have the more favourable final match. They are at home to a Colorado Rapids side that hasnt won in 13 matches while Portland Timbers - a point behind the Caps - will head to Texas to face a Dallas side that will most likely still be fighting for third place in the West. Portland kicks off 90 minutes before the Whitecaps, so shortly after kick off at BC Place, the Caps will know the result they need to make the postseason, but Carl Robinson has made it clear his attention will be focused purely on ensuring his team gets the job done without the need for help from elsewhere. This Saturday could be another defining moment in the life of this squad. They have coped with the pressure so far, but have one more cup final to go.
