Seahawks Reportedly Will Not Sign Colin Kaepernick

Pretty much every time Colin Kaepernick has been in the news, it pertained to his refusal to stand for the national anthem. While this news is different, this incident will always stay with him due how much traction it actually took.

Kaepernick is now a free agent and does not want to return to San Francisco. The only team that has showed any interest was the Seahawks. Not, however, head coach Pete Carroll told reporters that the Seahawks organization would not sign him “at this time.”

“Colin’s been a fantastic football player and he’s going to continue to be. At this time, we didn’t do anything with him, but we know where he is and who he is, and we had a chance to understand him much more,” Carroll said of Kaepernick Friday. “He’s a starter in this league.

By no means would Kaepernick compete for a starting QB position if he ended up signing with the Seahawks. He simply would serve as a back up to Russell Wilson.

The only reason teams are not interested in Kaepernick is the luggage that he carries with him. He will always bring unwanted attention to any team he potentially signs with due to his choise to not stand for the national anthem last year. Whether someone agrees with it or not, he will always bring unwanted press and media attention to any organization he goes to.

Odds are, he will end up on an NFL team for this upcoming season. Right now, things are not looking good for him.
