Seattle Seahawks cancel Colin Kaeperkick workout after he declined to stop anthem kneeling

On Thursday, ESPN published a report on Colin Kaepernick and his scheduled training with the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks have signed 25-year-old backup quarterback Stephen Morris, who has never taken a snap in the NFL. He has bounced around with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins on practice squads and via futures contracts.

Although, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport refuted this report and instead explained that the Seahawks actually postponed the meeting because they did not think Kaepernick had a broader plan in place for his off-field activities.

The news comes shortly after there was controversy between the Seahawks and Kaepernick.

Kaepernick became a lightning rod in 2016 when he refused to stand during the National Anthem, protesting what he believes are racial injustices and ongoing police brutality in the US.

The Seahawks, who remain thin at quarterback, haven't ruled out working out Kaepernick in the future. Kaepernick has accused the NFL of conspiring to keep him out of the league.

Morris has also never thrown a pass in an National Football League regular season game, while Kaepernick nearly threw the game-winning one in a Super Bowl.

But Kaepernick has no desire to change his beliefs just to get a contract.

The source said the Seahawks wanted to know that Kaepernick wouldn't kneel this season, and he was unwilling to give that assurance to them. Kaepernick is expected to be one of the options, but other quarterbacks will be considered. As of now, Russell Wilson and Morris are the only QBs on Seattle's roster.
