Seahawks Allegedly Plan Colin Kaepernick Workout, Postpone Over Anthem Kneeling


ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today that the Seattle Seahawks have chose to postpone its visit with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick over the matter of the Anthem Protests.

The 30-year-old has a pending lawsuit alleging collusion by the league office, owners and teams to keep him out of the NFL.

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.

In a ideal world - but one that's interpreted differently for each person - no NFL player would kneel on the sideline during the national anthem.

Kaepernick has received little interest since he became a free agent after the 2016 season, with no workouts scheduled before the Seahawks' reported interest.

The QB led the Niners to the Super Bowl in the 2012 season, where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens.

Foster was also charged with possession of an assault weapon, a felony, and possession of a high-capacity magazine, a misdemeanor. The arrest was Foster's second of the offseason; he was detained in Alabama for alleged marijuana possession in January.

There could still be a chance that Kaepernick gets his workout with the Seahawks, however. Since the outlet's initial report, The Seattle Times has confirmed the story. Past year they rolled with Austin Davis, who is bad, and Trevone Boykin who is both bad and already off the roster following a domestic violence arrest.

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.

At the upcoming league meetings in May, Mortensen said the anthem issue is "back on the front burner".

The Seahawks are no stranger to protests during the anthem. By the close of 2018, a number of National Football League players - and people across the country - had joined the protest (with Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, and Jeremy Lane being notable local participants).

It's ironic that the Seahawks are experiencing the wrath of Kaepernick supporters despite being the only team that has seriously engaged the possibility of signing Kaepernick - not once, it seems, but twice.
