NFL Rumors: Seahawks Postpone Colin Kaepernick Visit Over Anthem Protest Stance

Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick was set to visit the Seattle Seahawks this week to work out for the team, but the trip reportedly was postponed.

Reports surfaced Thursday that the team didn’t bring in the 30-year-old when the signal-caller would not say if he would stop kneeling during the national anthem, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. A final decision has yet to be made and the team still may decide to bring him in.

Kaepernick started all 16 games for the San Francisco 49ers in 2013, finishing the year with a 12-4 record a year after helping lead them to Super Bowl XLVII where they ultimately lost to the Baltimore Ravens. Kaepernick opted out of his contract following the 2016 season and has remained a free agent since.

Seattle has yet to find a backup quarterback to play behind Russell Wilson, and while Kaepernick is still expected to be one of their considerations, the team likely will continue to look at other potential candidates.
