Were the San Francisco 49ers going to cut Colin Kaepernick from the team anyway, even without the flag kneeling incident?

Luckily they have found their better QB in former New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo for years to come and hopefully he can help San Fran win the big one and make his teammates better than Kaepernick ever did.
Update: Also, Kap wasn't even in the Top 5-10 of QBs in 2014-2016. He was probably teetering on the Bottom 32 of starting QBs and he probably did it as a cop-out to hide the fact that he was going to be quietly cut regardless.
