Is Colin Kaepernick heading to the Seahawks?

While determining whether the Seahawks are truly considering Colin Kaepernick for a backup role is difficult to ascertain, suffice to say he would be an upgrade at the position.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll hasn't completely written off the idea of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick signing with the team before the 2018 NFL season, per Bleacher Report.


"There may be a place for him," Carroll said, per the Seattle Times, about the controversial player.

ESPN previously reported on April 13 Seattle's front office postponed a workout with Kaepernick because wouldn't verbally pledge to stop kneeling during the national anthem, as a protest against racial injustice and police brutality.


Another issue for the Seahawks is that Kaepernick has an ongoing lawsuit against the NFL and the owners alleging league-wide conspiracy to keep him off a team for his protests.

There may be a place for him.

NFL Network reported on April 16 talks between Seattle and Kaepernick are "in a holding pattern but not done," after signing Austin Davis, a player much less accomplished than Kaepernick.


In fact, though the team is set with Russell Wilson as primary signal-caller, with Davis and Stephen Davis as backups, Kaepernick would be a definitive upgrade.
