However, before the workout even began, the NFL team postponed his trip because Kaepernick reportedly told Seattle he would not stop kneeling during the national anthem if he was given the opportunity to play next season.
Other reports stated that Kaepernick’s trip being postponed was not because of him refusing to stand for the national anthem. Ian Rapoport, the national insider for NFL Network, tweeted out that “the team asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan,” which is why the visit never happened.
Well now, the Seahawks have made a decision, and Kaepernick won’t be happy.
The Seahawks have signed 25-year-old backup quarterback Stephen Morris, who has never taken a snap in the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars signed Morris as an undrafted free agent in 2014, but he never played any games.
But it gets even more embarrassing for Kaepernick.
The Philadelphia Eagles, Indianapolis Colts, and Washington Redskins have all picked up Morris since he’s joined the league, but he did not make the 53-man roster on any of those teams.
