Seahawks postpone workout with Colin Kaepernick

DEC. 11 2016 FILE

Why would he give up his beliefs and his cache as a minor progressive protest icon to go sit on the bench behind Russell Wilson for a mediocre Seahawks team?

Kaepernick's cancelled workout with the Seahawks comes a week after Texans owner Bob McNair said that he regretted apologizing for his comment made a year ago at meetings between players and owners to discuss protests during the national anthem.

The Seattle Seahawks postponed a planned workout with Colin Kaepernick when the free-agent quarterback declined to commit to not kneeling during the national anthem, according to a report from ESPN.

But that's not all. "He's not going to have a big a market as you may think, but the anthem issue was brought up, has been reported about with him, now with Colin Kaepernick, so clearly this is not going away".

Not so fast. According to Adam Schefter, the Hawks have postponed this scheduled meeting because Kap hasn't said he'll stop kneeling during the National Anthem. But, as it stands, the Seahawks still need a backup quarterback, whether it's Kaepernick or someone else. However, the meeting was canceled at the last minute over the constroversial protest. Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the team, setting himself up as a free agent to potentially player for a different organization.

The Seahawks are no stranger to protests during the anthem. And they have been tolerable for quite some time, in fact. However, the question has to be asked, are the Seahawks fundamentally changing their view on having players who are outspoken and political?

After sitting out the entire 2017 season, Kaepernick held a throwing workout on a practice field in Houston last month. "Duane Brown knelt for the anthem and is still on the team". By the close of 2018, a number of National Football League players - and people across the country - had joined the protest (with Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, and Jeremy Lane being notable local participants).
