Kaepernick, who began his silent protest during the 2016 season over issues related to social justice for Black people as it relates to police brutality before filing a grievance against the National Football League in October, is scheduled to be deposed in his collusion case on Tuesday. "Clearly, Seattle has accepted players speaking out for what they believe".
The Seahawksreportedly first contacted Kaepernick about two weeks ago to set up the visit to team's headquarters.
Kaepernick famously began sitting out national anthems in 2016, in protest over the United States government's treatment of people of color domestically and overseas. It is all the extra baggage that comes with his personal stances that has halted any team from truly making a push to sign him since the end of the 2016 season. In October, Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL alleging the owners colluded to blackball him from the league. Several teams, coaches and executives were supposed to be interviewed during the process, including the Seahawks. Kaepernick, who nearly won a Super Bowl in 2013, may not be the same player he once was, but he is more experienced than a drafted rookie would be. He met recently with the Cincinnati Bengals, who also wanted assurances he would stop kneeling, ESPNreports. The Seahawks are looking to fill a backup QB position after Trevone Boykin was released due to assault charges last month. "I think it had an effect on a lot of teams and players". Michael Bennett sat during the national anthem last season, but was traded this offseason to the Eagles.
The Seahawks are no stranger to protests during the anthem. The team has also stood with interlocked arms during the anthem.
