The Seattle Seahawks postponed a meeting with free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, reportedly because he won't commit to not kneeling or protesting during the national anthem, according to ESPN.


Subsequently, the NFL Network reported Seattle didn't postpone the meeting principally because Kaepernick refused to stop kneeling, but that they "asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan."

I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

Though the Seahawks signed former Redskins QB Stephen Morris on Friday, they are still considering bringing him in for a tryout.


Seattle contacted Kaepernick approximately two weeks ago about a visit to the team's headquarters. However, after everything had been planned, the meeting was abandoned over the Seahawks' late-hour condition concerning Kaepernick's anthem posture.
