Kaepernick won't stop kneeling?

Kaepernick won't stop kneeling?

That said, the team may be trying to use the potential employment of Kaepernick as a way to set the stage for a global resolution of the issue, including but not limited to a settlement of his collusion grievance. That report was contradicted in part by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who reported that the Seahawks postponed the workout because "the team asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and there was not a firm plan".

Kaepernick began protesting for social justice reform in 2016, and was not signed to a contract as a free agent last season, and still remains out of the NFL. Seattle was looking for assurance that Kaepernick would not kneel during the anthem, and he refused to give that assurance, declining to say he would stop. "There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder". The Times also said the Seahawks wanted to know Kaepernick's plans on pursuing activism off the field. It occurs to me that telling a guy he can't work out for you until he promises to stop kneeling during the anthem might not be helpful to the league's defense.

Last season, just a fraction of National Football League players were kneeling or raising a fist during the anthem, but in September, President Trump challenged activist players like Kaepernick and referred to them as "sons of bitches".

I had heard past year that Kaepernick said he'd stop kneeling in order to play with a team, but maybe that's not true.

Kaepernick, 30, visited with the Seahawks last May, when Seattle was in the market for a backup to starting quarterback Russell Wilson, but the team decided not to sign him.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursdaythat league sources told him that the tryout, which had been scheduled for this week, was not completely off and that the team could still bring Kaepernick in for a later visit. In fact, this news broke while Kaepernick was sitting in on the deposition of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Several teams, coaches and executives were supposed to be interviewed during the process, including the Seahawks. "We chose to kneel because it's a respectful gesture", Reid wrote.
