Seahawks 'postpone' Colin Kaepernick audition over anthem protest stance

Posted April 13, 2018

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today that the Seattle Seahawks have made a decision to postpone its visit with former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick over the matter of the Anthem Protests. That report was contradicted in part by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who reported that the Seahawks postponed the workout because "the team asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan".

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...

While collusion "requires actual cooperation between teams (or cooperation between a team or teams and the league)", according to Sports Illustrated, this latest development is a pretty good piece of evidence that there may be a conspiracy to keep him out of a league that does not actually require its players to stand during the national anthem. The protest drew both criticism and support, and gained widespread attention over the course of the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

As Russia warns against U.S. strike, Trump tweets missiles are coming
Donald Trump has issued a stark warning to Russian Federation and Syria to " get ready " for a missile attack on the Assad regime. The president made the statement in a tweet Thursday morning.

"The NFL should have suspended him for one game and he would have never done it again", Trump told Sean Hannity last October.

There has been a perception in sports media that teams are hesitant to sign Kaepernick because of possible controversy over his political views, which comes up frequently whenever a supposedly inferior quarterback gets a job in the NFL. Kaepernick has since filed a grievance against the league.

"Seattle said it wouldn't be worth his time and shouldn't bother with the travel and that it's not worth coming if he continued kneeling or doing on-field activism", a source told SB Nation.

But Rousey , who was watched by her former UFC boss Dana White, stepped in for the save to deny Triple H and his wife victory. In the final moments of the match, both Stephanie and Triple H tried to deliver pedigree to Angle and Rousey, respectively.

The Seahawks are now looking for a backup to Russell Wilson, but are considering other options along with Kaepernick. Also, the free agent market for backups is going a bit haywire with guys like Josh McCown commanding eight-figure salaries.

Colin Kaepernick, who has been staying in shape and practicing his skills as a professional football quarterback despite being unemployed from the NFL for over a year, was reportedly supposed to work out for the Seattle Seahawks this week. However, the trip was canceled over the last-minute stipulation regarding Kaepernick's protests during the anthem.

Three NFL owners are on the deposition list for Kaepernick's lawsuit: Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots and Bob McNair of the Houston Texans. Several teams, coaches and executives were supposed to be interviewed during the process, including the Seahawks.

While the anthem protests eventually died down last season, during the owner's meeting the topic was brought back up. "We chose to kneel because it's a respectful gesture", Reid wrote.
