SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Colin Kaepernick's every move is scrutinized now that he has reached rock-star status as a third-year quarterback with the NFL's top-selling No. 7 jersey.
He showed up for Day 1 of training camp Thursday sporting a black beanie hat and large red headphones hanging from his neck, insisting he is unaffected by it all. No Dolphins gear to be seen.
The hype isn't going away any time soon.
In six short months since reaching the Super Bowl and losing in the waning moments, Kaepernick has won an ESPY for breakthrough athlete and appeared unclothed on the cover of ESPN The Magazine's ``The Body Issue.'' And Kaep caused quite a stir by wearing a Miami cap.
He fully expects to take plenty of grief from his teammates in the coming days.
