Seahawks Are Wary of Colin Kaepernick

Seahawks Are Wary of Colin Kaepernick

Seattle had arranged to bring Kaepernick in for a visit this week but postponed the trip when the quarterback "declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season", according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Seahawks are still considering working out Kaepernick, a source told the network. Now that the case is being built (and potentially beginning to take a shape that suggests trouble for the league), the olive branch from the Seahawks may have been part of an effort to take Geragos up on his offer, belatedly, with Kaepernick, the Seahawks, and the NFL having a clear understanding as to all issues between them before Kaepernick signs.

It had been originally reported on Thursday morning that the Seattle Seahawks had scheduled to bring in quarterback Colin Kaepernick in for a workout this week. The team made a decision to postpone his scheduled visit while coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider discussed the matter, according to the Times, which added that Kaepernick still could be considered and brought in for a visit.

Kaepernick has a pending lawsuit alleging collusion by the league office, owners and teams to keep him out of the NFL. It is all the extra baggage that comes with his personal stances that has halted any team from truly making a push to sign him since the end of the 2016 season.

"And at the last moment that trip was postponed, because a conversation occurred where they wanted to know what he was going to be doing on the field this year before and during the national anthem", Schefter said on NFL Live.

The 30-year-old went on to start 11 games that year, but opted out of the rest of his contract with the 49ers in March 2017 and set about getting a new team. Several other players have since joined the protest, drawing controversy around the National Football League and now allegations that Kaepernick was being blackballed by National Football League owners for his political stances.

Former 49ers safety Eric Reid also recently revealed that he was asked by the Bengals to stop kneeling during the anthem.

Kaepernick met with NFL attorneys in NY for his deposition regarding a grievance against the league's owners allegedly colluding to keep him from playing.

While Kaepernick is still expected to be an option for the Seahawks, ESPN reported other quarterbacks are also under consideration. McNair has said he was referring to team executives and not kneeling players.
