The Seattle Seahawks have postponed a meeting with free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick due to his decision to continue protesting during the national anthem. This was a sticking point for him, and as a result, they have hit pause on discussions.
Adam Schefter reported Thursday that the Seahawks’ decision came after Kaepernick declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season.
However, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Seahawks didn’t postpone the meeting solely because Kaepernick declined to stop kneeling. Instead, they “asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan.”
Per Bob Condotta:
The Seahawks will hold internal talks about potential backup options at quarterback, but they could still consider signing Kaepernick in the future.
Kaepernick needs to quit the BS about kneeling. It’s more important for him to have his name out there as a player, that will ultimately help spread his message, because if he doesn’t play, no one will care about him being a martyr for much longer. And who wouldn’t love to see the bicep kiss just one more time.
