Are Seahawks best fit left for Colin Kaepernick? It makes some sense

  • Kenny Lawler warms up for Sunday’s game with Miami. The Miami Dolphins played the Seattle Seahawks in the first game of the regular season for both teams Sunday

The Seattle Times reported Monday that Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll could be looking at Kaepernick as a possible backup to Russell Wilson. With more buzz surrounding him now more than the beginning of the free agent period, it will be interesting to see which team finally gives Kaepernick an opportunity to step back onto the football field.

In 12 games last season, Kaepernick completed 59.2 percent of his passes, averaged 6.8 YPA and threw 16 touchdowns with four interceptions.

Kapernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers in March and is now a free agent. It's been quiet on the Kaepernick front since then, with the exception of the QB's charity work. Carroll would not rule them out, which constitutes as news these days.

There has been rumors going around that the Seattle Seahawks are interested in former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. "We're looking to keep it competitive there, too". "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 make sure that we manage properly. We really are", Carroll said, according to ESPN.

Colin Kaepernick, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who made headlines last season for refusing to stand during "The Star-Spangled Banner" may be suiting up for the Seattle Seahawks next season. "So it's hard to understand", said Sherman in March. "He's also one of the most genuine people you could possibly meet. They signed guys who have had off years before".

Boykin backed up Russell Wilson for the entire 2016 season without ever seeing game action, but is in danger of losing his job.

In addition to providing experience, both Kaepernick and Griffin would be schematically well-suited to backing up Wilson, as each has great familiarity with the read-option offense the team likes to run, although Griffin has struggled to avoid injuries.
