The source said the Seahawks wanted to know that Kaepernick wouldn't kneel this season, and he was unwilling to give that assurance to them.

Here's the curious thing about the Seahawks doing the Kaepernick two-step.

Colin Kaepernick is in the middle of a collusion case against the NFL over allegations that league owners have blackballed him.

Seattle had arranged to bring Kaepernick in for a visit this week but postponed the trip when the quarterback "declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season", according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He has banned his team from kneeling during the anthem, threatening to bench anyone who didn't respect the flag.

"The NFL should have suspended him for one game and he would have never done it again", Trump told Sean Hannity last October. Previous year they rolled with Austin Davis, who is bad, and Trevone Boykin who is both bad and already off the roster following a domestic violence arrest.

A team desperate for a backup quarterback still has its limits.

Beginning in August 2016, Kaepernick, then with the 49ers, began holding a silent protest during the national anthem to call attention to racism and police brutality against communities of color.

The Seahawks postponed a workout for controversial QB Colin Kaepernick until he makes a decision on his plans for the National Anthem and Doug doesn't blame them. It has been reported that the NFL is crafting a new national anthem policy that likely would be implemented for the 2018 season.

McNair was infamously quoted in an ESPN report as suggesting the league should crack down on protests because 'we can't have the inmates running the prison'.

Several depositions have already taken place, including Baltimore Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh. After all, this comes on the heels of the Cincinnati Bengals not signing free agent safety Eric Reid. Though some teams have reportedly considered signing him, he has remained on the market, leading some to believe his protest turned teams off.
