Kaepernick, 30, visited with the Seahawks last May, when Seattle was in the market for a backup to starting quarterback Russell Wilson, but the team decided not to sign him.
According to Kaepernick's lawsuit, '[The owners] have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick's leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States'. The team made a decision to postpone his scheduled visit while coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider discussed the matter, according to the Times, which added that Kaepernick still could be considered and brought in for a visit.
The report would seem to mark a change in Kaepernick's approach to his controversial protest. At the time, coach Pete Carroll said, "We have a starter, but [Kaepernick]'s a starter in this league and I can't imagine that somebody won't give him a chance to play".
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.
The Seahawks have been known for letting players be themselves. Kaepernick already sat out the 2017 season after failing to receive any offers. Reid was among the first players who protested with Kaepernick. The protest drew both criticism and support, and gained widespread attention over the course of the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. It was taxing; and I think it is something to not be forgotten about this football season.
Schefter said the day after he was supposed to meet with Seattle, Kaepernick was to be questioned by NFL lawyers as part of his collusion grievance against the league.
