According to Schefter, the Seahawks backed away when Kaepernick would not promise to stop kneeling in protest during national anthem demonstrations before games next season.

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

I have advocated for the Seahawks to bring in Kaepernick as the backup to Russell Wilson and continue to believe he would be ideal for the position.

Between Kaepernick's ongoing unemployment and the fact that safety and fellow protester Eric Reid can't find a job this offseason, it has become increasingly clear that NFL teams simply do not want to roster players who will kneel during the national anthem.

The team wasn't so much concerned with Kaepernick's position as it was that he didn't seem to have a firm plan for his future, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

" The NFL must have suspended him for one match and he would haven't achieved it", Trump told Fox News Sean Hannity at October.

The management reshuffle could affect other senior VW executives, a source told Reuters on Wednesday. Amid opposition from labour leaders, he failed to sell motorbike maker Ducati past year .

The Seattle Times reported that the decision wasn't exclusively related to Kaepernick's stance on kneeling, but that the team wanted a firmer plan about his activism and how it might impact football.

Kaepernick, a former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, was contacted with the Seahawks approximately fourteen days past to make a excursion to this staff's center along with clinic.

The strangest part, however, is that the Seahawks are tolerable of protests.

Kaepernick was the first player in the National Football League to kneel during the anthem to protest police brutality, particularly against African-Americans.

The day after his scheduled workout with the Seahawks, Kaepernick sat for his deposition administered by NFL attorneys in NY regarding the league's alleged attempts to conspire to keep him out of the league. At the time, coach Pete Carroll said, "We have a starter, but [Kaepernick]'s a starter in this league and I can't imagine that somebody won't give him a chance to play".

Kaepernick sat in the previous depositions just he did with Jones.
