Pete Carroll: Colin Kaepernick to the Seahawks Is Still ‘Open’ Opportunity
On the other hand, Carroll refused to discuss Kaepernick's anthem protests.
Whether it was because of his national anthem activities or ongoing collusion lawsuit against the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks canceled their planned workout with Colin Kaepernick last week.
Since then, the Seahawks have added two middling quarterbacks, Stephen Morris and Austin Davis, to their roster.
Despite those moves, head coach Pete Carroll said Kaepernick’s opportunity to join the team was still “open” during an appearance on Sports Radio KJR on Thursday.
“We are trying to figure it out,” Carroll said. “The discussion and the opportunity is still open. We’re just trying to figure out what’s best for us.”
When asked about Kaepernick’s anthem protests, Carroll said he was “not going there” yet.
That sentiment was echoed by Seattle general manager John Schneider when he was asked a similar question.
Asked point blank if he walked away from hosting Colin Kaepernick on a FA visit because the exiled QB did not give #Seahawks assurance he wouldn’t kneel during anthems, as per a natl report last week, GM John Schneider said: “That’s what I can’t get into.”
