13 April, 2018, 06:13 | Author: Otis Hoffman
Even the Seattle Seahawks reportedly postponed colinkaepernick's no trip to a pre-determined camp together with the team after the embattled quarterback told that the team he would not stop his national anthem kneeling protests.
Seattle is still considering bringing in Kaepernick for a workout.
Thursday's revelation is particularly notable given that Kaepernick is now suing the NFL, alleging that team owners and NFL executives colluded to keep him out of the league.
Former 49ers safety Eric Reid also recently revealed that he was asked by the Bengals to stop kneeling during the anthem. 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.
"But it's a situation here where Colin Kaepernick was going to come in there and work out there and now he's not".
The topic of signing Kaepernick was brought up again earlier this month (of note: it was of last year's meeting, and prior to Schefter's report) during an interview between Seahawks general manager John Schneider and Dave Ross on 97.3 KIRO FM.
