Common to NFL Don't Blackball Colin Kaepernick ... 'This Is America'

Hawks sign back-up quarterback Stephen Morris Seattle Seahawks rescind Colin Kaepernick invite over kneeling

It didn't take very long for the Seahawks to look elsewhere and on Friday, they signed back-up QB Stephen Morris, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

No NFL team has worked out Kaepernick since he became a free agent after the 2016 season.

This news story had pretty much everyone talking about the Kaepernick situation all over social media on Thursday.

The Seahawks, who remain thin at quarterback, haven't ruled out working out Kaepernick in the future.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell and Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll will reportedly be deposed by Colin Kaepernick's legal team later this month. He has spent time on the roster of four different teams since 2014.

Is Priyanka Chopra not signing Kalpana Chawla biopic?
Though Priyanka didn't have much to do in the trailer, it looks lovely and really a sensitive story that's needed to be told. The trailer of Priyanka Chopra's second worldwide project A Kid Like Jake released on April 13 and simply delighted her fans.

The team told CNN that a scheduled workout planned for this past Monday was postponed but that it was halted because Kaepernick's representatives couldn't provide Kaepernick's long-term plan for non-football commitments.

The Seahawks are in the market for a No. 2 quarterback behind starter Russell Wilson.

Some reports have suggested the Seahawks canceled the workout after learning Kaepernick wouldn't commit to standing during the national anthem.

Kaepernick reportedly told the team he was focused exclusively on football and wouldn't agree to any preconditions, according to USA Today. A visit last offseason passed without a deal despite multiple Seahawks players, including new Eagles defensive lineman Michael Bennett, participating in anthem protests.

Commissioner Roger Goodell will soon be the target of Colin Kaepernick's legal team, which is set to depose the NFL chief later this month as part of the ex-49ers quarterback's grievance against the league.
