According to Adam Schefter, Kaepernick was scheduled to workout for the Seattle Seahawks, but the team postponed the visit after Kaepernick declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem. A resource told ESPN that the excursion was delay after the Seahawks contended about Kaepernick's anthem demonstration.

The Seahawks reportedly wanted to know the former 49ers' signal-caller wouldn't kneel in the upcoming season, and he was unwilling to make that promise. As Sports Illustrated pointed out, free agent safety Eric Reid has also faced questions about whether he would continue kneeling during the national anthem in protest.

NFL.com also reports the meeting has been postponed, although it says the Seahawks "asked for [Kaepernick's] plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan".


"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 Seattle Times reported that the decision wasn't exclusively related to Kaepernick's stance on kneeling, but that the team wanted a firmer plan about his activism and how it might impact football.

Kaepernick has been out of a job since the end of the 2016 season, with no team picking him up after the quarterback parted ways with the San Francisco 49ers.


The strangest part, however, is that the Seahawks are tolerable of protests. Many other National Football League players joined his protest, which angered many - most notably President Trump, who said Kaepernick should have been "suspended" for kneeling.

In October, Kaepernick registered a grievance instance accusing NFL owners of colluding against him to keep him out from their league under a collective bargaining arrangement. He apparently won't be getting one with the Seattle Seahawks in the immediate future. The protest drew both criticism and support, and gained widespread attention over the course of the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

"He's such a locker room cancer that his teammates gave him the Len Eshmont Award, which is given to the player who best exemplifies courage and inspiration".
