Seattle Seahawks Postpone Meeting With Colin Kaepernick Over National Anthem Protests
Apr 13, 2018, 02:44
The Seattle Seahawks were all set to work out former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick earlier this week, but rescinded the invitation after he wouldn't say whether he plans to continue kneeling in protest during the national anthem, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A final decision hasn't been made, and a future tryout is still possible, ESPN noted.
Kaepernick had been scheduled this week for a workout with the team - which has been eyeing him as a potential backup for Russell Wilson. There were conflicting reports as to whether Kaepernick kneeling in protest during the national anthem played a role.
Kaepernick, who has filed a grievance accusing the NFL of collusion to keep him out of the league, was deposed by NFL attorneys in NY on Tuesday, the day after his scheduled workout with the Seahawks would have been held. It started a trend that many players league-wide followed including some Seahawks.
"The question of how he will handle the anthem this year came up and caused that visit, at the very least, to be postponed, and possibly canceled, depending on how you look at it", Schefter said on "NFL Live" Thursday afternoon.
Remember, Robert Griffin III has a job and Kaepernick does not.
