The Seahawks and Colin Kaepernick: It's complicated

  • Kaepernick won't stop kneeling?

And if a team that plays in a relatively liberal city, is known for its activism, has plenty of veteran leadership and lacks a backup quarterback won't sign Kaepernick?

Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, was contacted with the Seahawks approximately fourteen days past to make a excursion to this staff's center along with clinic.

Colin Kaepernick's visit with the Seattle Seahawks was postponed after he declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem, according to reports. That report was contradicted in part by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who reported that the Seahawks postponed the workout because "the team asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan".

The team is thinking about allowing Kaepernick to try out for a spot on the team but they have not made any decisions, a source told ESPN. Last October, when other National Football League owners (and a certain elected official in Washington D.C.) - were absolutely losing their minds over the anthem protests, team owner Paul Allen was praised by his players for letting them express themselves how and when they wished.

A possible free-agent deal between Reid and the Bengals reportedly fell apart when the anthem issue was raised. During his visit, owner Mike Brown would question Reid about his anthem protests.

Kaepernick began protesting during the national anthem during the 2016 preseason with the San Francisco 49ers. Kaepernick, who nearly won a Super Bowl in 2013, may not be the same player he once was, but he is more experienced than a drafted rookie would be.

Jones has been a leading critic of the anthem protests. He remained unsigned through the 2017 season. Goodell hopes that by having the league show empathy to the causes that have triggered so many players, and putting $89 million into a seven-year program to support community-based initiatives for criminal-justice reform, players would no longer feel the need to protest during the anthem.
