Seahawks Interested In Bringing In Colin Kaepernick Or RG3 as a Back-Up QB
This might be the first confirmed report of a team actually stating that they are interested in Colin Kaepernick.
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll stated on Monday that the team is interested in signing former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick or former Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III as a back-up QB to starter Russell Wilson.
During an appearance on 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Salk” show, Carroll explained that the team is looking to add competition behind Russell Wilson, and he was asked specifically about Kaepernick and Griffin.
“We’re looking at everybody. We really are,” Carroll said. “We’ve been tracking everything that’s going on, and we’ve got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we’re still trying to manage properly. But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys.”
Although he battled through three different injuries in 2016, Wilson has never missed a start during his NFL career.
In 12 games last season, Kaepernick completed 59.2 percent of his passes, averaged 6.8 YPA and threw 16 touchdowns with four interceptions.
RG3’s season was plagued by injuries which ultimately got him released.
