Seahawks reportedly postpone Kaepernick trip

Seahawks sign QB Stephen Morris fuel Colin Kaepernick controversy

Seahawks sign QB Stephen Morris fuel Colin Kaepernick controversy

In June, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll talked about about Kaepernick, "He's a starter on this league".

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been a free agent since he ignited the controversy when he began kneeling during the national anthem in the 2016 season as a protest against police brutality.

As a three-year starter at the University of Miami, Morris threw for 7,896 yards, 49 touchdowns and 30 interceptions while completing 57.7% of his passes in 36 games.

Though no final decisions have been made, the embattled quarterback's planned trip to a pre-season camp with the team was put on ice by team officials when he declined to say the protests would stop, a league source told ESPN on Thursday.

Kaepernick met with NFL attorneys in NY for his deposition regarding a grievance against the league's owners allegedly colluding to keep him from playing.

The timing of Morris' signing with the Seahawks sparked only more controversy as Kaepernick, who hasn't played since the 2016 season, tries to navigate finding a spot in the National Football League after drawing attention with his social activism and protests. But scheduling a workout with the Seahawks suggests he does, while also not wanting to give up a public display of his cause if circumstances dictate it. As of now, Russell Wilson and Morris are the only QBs on Seattle's roster. Right or wrong, Kaepernick's anthem protest assures he will not fit that bill. Kaepernick is expected to be one of the options, but other quarterbacks will be considered.
