Seattle Seahawks postponed meeting with Colin Kaepernick over kneeling during anthem

DEC. 11 2016 FILE

Colin Kaepernick is in the middle of a collusion case against the NFL over allegations that league owners have blackballed him

"Clearly, Seattle has accepted players speaking out for what they believe", Rapoport tweeted Thursday.

According to ESPN, the Seahawks contacted the former 49ers quarterback two weeks ago to arrange a workout.

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. Because they pushed all in previous year on Duane Brown (good choice) and Sheldon Richardson (who signed with the Vikings... whoops!) they lack the draft capital to go out and splurge on any of the top six quarterbacks in what's considered to be a good draft for quarterbacks.

Free agent safety Eric Reid, who also took a knee to protest alongside his then-49ers teammate, reportedly was asked about the issue by the Bengals during a visit earlier this week. Colin Kaepernick first started kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 as a form of protest against police brutality against minorities. It was not because he said he declined to stop kneeling, tho. The QB led the Niners to the Super Bowl in the 2012 season, where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens.

Rockies Brawl Is Going Viral
After what went down Wednesday afternoon, everyone at Coors Filed might need some cold ones to take the edge off. The Rockies head east to take on the Washington Nationals beginning on Thursday night in a four-game series.

National Football League teams have shied away from signing the outspoken quarterback as a result of his behavior, even though countless other players at the position with less impressive resumes have received contracts. According to reports, he was recently deposed in the claim.

Last month, the Seahawks released Trevone Boykin, who was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. "I think it had an effect on a lot of teams and players". Kaepernick already sat out the 2017 season after failing to receive any offers.

The strangest part, however, is that the Seahawks are tolerable of protests. The team has also stood with interlocked arms during the anthem.
