Colin Kaepernick Reportedly Lands Workout with Seattle Seahawks

Colin Kaepernick is speculated to have been blackballed because of his national anthem protest. (Scott Cunningham/Getty Images Sport)Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly set to work out with the Seattle Seahawks a week after Pete Carroll revealed he’s considering him for a back-up role.Kaepernick has remained unsigned since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March and NFL Network reported the Seahawks will have him and other reserve quarterbacks work out Wednesday, May 24, a change of plans notwithstanding. Former Denver Broncos quarterback Austin Davis also is set to visit.Kaepernick’s rumored meeting adds fuel to speculation that he could be joining the Seahawks after Carroll was asked if the team is considering putting him and fellow free agent Robert Griffin III behind QB Russell Wilson.“We’re looking at everybody. We really are,” Carroll told “Brock and Salk.” “We’ve been tracking everything that’s going on, and we’ve got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we’re still trying to manage properly. But, quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys.”Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett believes Kaepernick, who stirred controversy after his season-long protest of the national anthem, would make a great addition.“I think a person that’s dedicating their life to creating change, why wouldn’t you want that type of leadership in your locker room?” Bennett told 710 ESPN Seattle. “Why wouldn’t you want a young person that’s dealt with people wanting to kill him because of his choices in life?“So, I don’t know why people feel like that is a problem.” read more
