REPORT: Seahawks Not Expected To Sign Colin Kaepernick
Reports surfaced last week that the Seattle Seahawks were gearing up to give a workout to former division rival Colin Kaepernick in the team’s search for a backup QB.
Over the weekend, Spike Lee must’ve heard something because he took to Instagram and posted a message saying Kaepernick had signed with the Seahawks. But on Tuesday, those rumors were put to rest.
It appears the only team in the league that showed any type of interest in signing Kaepernick won’t be signing him after all, according to Pro Football Talk.
“Pat Kirwan of SiriusXM NFL Radio said today that he doesn’t expect the Seahawks to sign Kaepernick. That’s particularly noteworthy because Kirwan has a long and close relationship with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, dating to their time together when Carroll was defensive coordinator and then head coach of the Jets from 1990 to 1994. Kirwan didn’t say Carroll was the source of his belief that Kaepernick won’t be a Seahawk, but it seems unlikely that Kirwan would have bad information about the team his old friend coaches.”
At this point, Kaepernick may have to sit and wait for a few QB’s to go down with injuries in order to get a call from a team.
