Seahawks Are Wary of Colin Kaepernick

No team has brought Kaepernick in for a workout since he became a free agent following the 2016 season.

The Seahawks reportedly postponed a pre-scheduled visit for Colin Kaepernick after the ex-49ers quarterback declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Seattle Times also reports that Kaepernick's refusal to lay out how he'd handle his off-field life resulted in the postponed meeting. Foles went from unwanted journeyman to Super Bowl MVP by finding the right situation in Philadelphia. It was supposed to be on Monday.

Kaepernick famously began sitting out national anthems in 2016, in protest over the United States government's treatment of people of color domestically and overseas.

Kaepernick hasn't been back on an NFL roster since the end of the 2016-17 season, despite the fact that he has more experience and better statistics than the majority of the backup quarterbacks in the league - and even some starting quarterbacks. The team released backup Trevone Boykin last month after he was arrested in Texas on domestic violence charges. However, he has received little interest from around the league over the a year ago about possibly bringing him.

According to Schefter, the Seahawks made a "last-minute stipulation" over Kaepernick's protest, which sought to raise awareness for social injustice, asking that he stop kneeling during the national anthem, and he would not give them that assurance.

He also questioned why a woman protesting in support of rape victims would be topless, saying it was disrespectful to victims. Other female witnesses would be called, he said, giving testimony that they were drugged and molested in very similar ways.

Kaepernick, who hasn't played since January 1, 2017, also has 2,300 career rushing yards and 13 touchdowns on the ground.

The owners plan to discuss the issue again in May at their next meeting.

Kaepernick, then with the San Francisco 49ers, started the movement of National Football League players kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner in the 2016 preseason over racial inequality and oppression in the United States.

The Seahawks have been known for letting players be themselves. Seattle did trade Bennett this offseason, however, because it reportedly wanted a quieter locker room.

The strangest part, however, is that the Seahawks are tolerable of protests.
