Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ersreached agreement on a six-year extension worth over $110 million that ties him to the team through 2020, sources said Wednesday.

The deal makes Kaepernick one of the NFL’s top-10 paid quarterbacks and includes a record $61 million guaranteed. He was scheduled to have made $1.073 million this season.

It also is the ultimate sign of confidence that the 49ers have no worries about Kaepernick’s role in an offseason incident in Miami that police still are investigating.

The deal for the 26-year-old Kaepernick is expected to have strong implications on potential deals for Cam Newton, Andy Dalton and Alex Smith this year, along with Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson next year, when they are eligible to sign their first NFL contract extensions.

Kaepernick is 21-8 as the 49ers starting quarterback and has led San Francisco to three straight NFC Championship games.
