MODESTO -- Colin Kaepernick isn't going to resent Vernon Davis and Alex Boone if they boycott the 49ers' mandatory minicamp this week because of contract disputes.

"I would love to see all of our players there, but at the same time, they have to do what's best for them and make their own decisions," Kaepernick said while hosting his second annual golf tournament benefiting Camp Taylor's efforts for children with heart issues.

Kaepernick has stayed in contact with David and Boone this offseason even though the starting tight end and right guard have skipped organized team activities. Each player is seeking a raise despite having two years left on their contracts.

"I've talked to both and I'm not going to speak on another person's situation but I support them and they're great people," Kaepernick said at Del Rio Country Club.

"They're grown men, so you can't say what they should or shouldn't do. That's their right. But I know all our players support each other and everybody would love to have them."
