Seahawks 86'd Kaepernick Workout Over Kneeling Stipulation

The NFL responded by increasing the amount of protests, and the movement became more against Trump than any of the issues that Kaepernick is fighting for.

There could still be a chance that Kaepernick gets his workout with the Seahawks, however.

Kaepernick has famously kneeled on the field as the anthem played in protest of racism and police brutality.

The Seattle Seahawks postponed a workout for Colin Kaepernick this week after the controversial quarterback declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday.

But that's not all. "They could have then suspended him for two games and they could have suspended him again if he did it a third time, for the season, and you would never have had a problem". It's been speculated on quite a bit, but quarterback-needy teams always had some sort of excuse as to why they wouldn't bring in Kaepernick, even if it was crystal clear that he would be their best option.

Not long after the grievance was filed, attorney Mark Geragos suggested that he'd go away if a team gave Kaepernick a job.

The Seahawks are no stranger to protests during the anthem. And they have been tolerable for quite some time, in fact. However, the question has to be asked, are the Seahawks fundamentally changing their view on having players who are outspoken and political?

During the 2017 season, Jones spoke up about his team policy on kneeling before the national anthem.

In other words, the team wanted a guarantee Colin would stand during the anthem. Q Jefferson also sat on the bench. Because they pushed all in previous year on Duane Brown (good choice) and Sheldon Richardson (who signed with the Vikings... whoops!) they lack the draft capital to go out and splurge on any of the top six quarterbacks in what's considered to be a good draft for quarterbacks.

Kaepernick has a pending lawsuit alleging collusion by the league office, owners and teams to keep him out of the NFL. McNair said that the National Football League owners "can't have the inmates running the prison", referring to the players.
