Report: “Nothing is imminent” between Seahawks and Colin Kaepernick

The Seahawks will take the field today for another round of practices, and they still won’t have an experienced backup quarterback with them.

After Colin Kaepernick visited the Seahawks last week, there was a sense they were looking at options behind Russell Wilson.

But according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, there’s “nothing is imminent” between the Seahawks and the former 49ers quarterback.

Of course, there’s still a chance they could sign him later, as there’s still training camp and preseason to get another quarterback up to speed with what they do. But for now, they’re riding with Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps behind Wilson.

Waiting might also suggest that last week’s visit served as a trial balloon for the team as much as a chance to get to know Kaepernick for the coaching staff.

It would be interesting to know if Seahawks owner and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has received the same kind of sheaf of letters that Giants owner John Mara did protesting a player who’s not on his roster. Or if anyone ever sent Allen physical letters. Or if letters ever get sent by anyone other than when they’re angry about something.

  1. Why the PFT man-crush for Colin Kaepernick? If he was better than mediocre, he would have a job. The reality is that Kaep is just not a very good QB.

  2. Kaepernick is not signed because he’s been awful for the last three years. Krapernick has a college education. Maybe he should stop being lazy and start working in the real world. Krapernick is not a kid anymore. It’s time for him to man up and put his college education to good use instead of being a lazy bum looking for fast money. The NFL doesn’t owe you anything. It’s time to move on.

  3. The man donated millions of dollars to charity and positive change, and everyone hates the guy with a passion and prays he never works again. Murricaaaaa

    I personally don’t hate Colin Kapernick. I do however dislike pig socks and Fidel Castro t-shirts.

    It’s very simple, if Kapernick could help a team win, he would be employed. His declining/limited skill set along with the fact that at least 50% of any given teams fan base doesn’t like pig socks and Fidel Castro t-shirts are the reason he’s out of the game currently.

    I think it’s closer to 80% of all fan bases that don’t want krapernick. No team can afford to lose that much of their fan base over a sjw who is a rb trying to play qb.
