Seattle Seahawks Postpone Meeting With Colin Kaepernick Over National Anthem Protests

Kaepernick won't stop kneeling?

Kaepernick has continued working out in hopes of landing another job in the NFL. Seattle doesn't have a backup quarterback on their roster.

After Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers parted company a little over a year ago, he went unsigned in 2017, following a relatively successful 2016 campaign.

Colin Kaepernick's workout with the Seahawks was postponed or canceled this week after he declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem in protest of racial discrimination and police brutality, according to ESPN. His NFL exile appeared to be coming to an end this week with reports that the Seahawks were bringing him in for a workout, but ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Seahawks backed off plans to take a look at Kaepernick.

Rauner, If Asked, Would Deploy Illinois National Guard To Mexican Border
No new California National Guard troops have been sent to the border , according to Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Democratic Gov. It will not be a assignment to locate women and children or detain persons escaping violence and trying a better existence.

He started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2013, finishing the year with a 12-4 record a year after he helped lead them to Super Bowl XLVII where they ultimately lost to the Baltimore Ravens, 34-31.

Kaepernick famously began sitting out national anthems in 2016, in protest over the United States government's treatment of people of color domestically and overseas.

In a separate report, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the Seahawks did postpone a visit, but "it was not because he said he declined to stop kneeling".

Traumatic Brain Injuries — HEALTH REPORT
But if they experienced the same head injury in their thirties, the risk over the same time period was 37 per cent. A traumatic brain injury can be caused by a fall, a traffic accident, a sports accident or a violent attack.

This comes at a time in which the Cincinnati Bengals visited with San Francisco 49ers free-agent safety Eric Reid, who also knelt with Kaepernick during the anthem, and wanted assurances from Reid that he would not participate in on-field activism.

Jones has been a leading critic of the anthem protests.

But Kaepernick is yet to even secure a tryout with any team and has an open grievance case against team owners, who he claims have colluded to keep him out of the National Football League because of the protest. In fact, this news broke while Kaepernick was sitting in on the deposition of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
