  • Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick was supposed to meet with the Seahawks this week, but the team chose to hold off on the visit after the quarterback would not promise to stop kneeling during the national anthem, ESPN reported, citing unidentified sources.

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.

"The team reportedly asked Kaepernick if he would continue his protest if he was signed to the National Football League again and he was 'unwilling to give that assurance to them, '" writes Fox. It occurs to me that telling a guy he can't work out for you until he promises to stop kneeling during the anthem might not be helpful to the league's defense. 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".

Eric Reid often kneeled with Kaepernick when they played together in San Francisco.

Kaepernick has been a free agent since last March when the 49ers did not pick up his contract option.

Phipps named the newborn Vaughn, and Snipes has never second-guessed her decision, she said. More than a year later, Snipes and Phipps have stayed in touch.

The native of Milwaukee has thrown for 12, 271 yards with 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions over 69 career games, all with the 49ers.

It's getting harder and harder for NFL teams to claim not signing Colin Kaepernick is exclusively a football decision.

Kaepernick is not the only player rumored to be facing a blowback for participating in the protest.

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".

Head coaches John Harbaugh of the Ravens and the team's general manager, Ozzie Newsome, are also on the request list from Kaepernick's attorneys. And the team's No. 2 last season, Austin Davis, is a free agent. During his visit, owner Mike Brown would question Reid about his anthem protests. The team reportedly brought Kaepernick in for a visit in May 2017, though did not sign him.
