Colin Kaepernick – Seahawks Postpone Visit After NFL’er Won’t Say If He’ll Stop Kneeling During Anthem
According to reports, the Seahawks postponed Colin Kaepernick’s work out, after he declined to say he would stop kneeling during the national anthem next season. A source says, that the Seahawks still are considering bringing in Kaepernick for a tryout, and no decisions are final. A source tells ESPN that the organization contacted Kaepernick about two weeks ago to arrange a visit to the team’s headquarters, but after tentative arrangements were made and travel was planned, the trip was unexpectedly scuttled over the Seahawks’ last-minute stipulation regarding Kaepernick’s anthem stance.
The source said the Seahawks wanted to know that Kaepernick wouldn’t kneel this season, and he was unwilling to give that assurance to them.
This comes at a time in which the Cincinnati Bengals visited with San Francisco 49ers free-agent safety Eric Reid, who knelt with Kaepernick during the anthem, and wanted assurances from Reid that he would not participate in on-field activism.
No NFL team has worked out Kaepernick since he became a free agent after the 2016 season. The Seahawks visited with him a year ago and considered it again this week, and the Baltimore Ravens entertained the idea of bringing in Kaepernick last summer.
