Seattle Seahawks has postponed a planned training for quarterback Colin Kaepernick until they know more about his position on issues of national anthem, his collusion against NFL and his other positions against social injustice, several sources informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Thursday.
The Seahawks planned the training two weeks ago but decided to postpone the last minute after not having a clear understanding of how the former San Francisco 49ers signal caller would continue on these issues, according to Rapoport.
Seahawk's decision to delay the training was not linked to Kaepernick's position to kneel during the anthem, a source informed of the team's thinking told Rapoport. Rather, the team asked for his plan to go ahead and he did not have a fixed one.
However, according to a source informed of Kaepernick's thinking, Seahawks made a particular reference to knee bending, rather than just a matter of his overall plans.
Seahawks will wait until they know more about Kaepernick's intentions before embracing the training, Rapoport reported. Both sides aim to meet at a later date.
The Seahawks were the only team who expressed formal interest in Kaepernick last year ̵
Seattle has not shot from hiring players who have been active in addressing social problems. Last year, Seahawk launched Seahawk players Equality & Justice for All Action Funds – an effort aimed at supporting education and leadership programs that deal with gender equality and justice. In addition, NFL, in cooperation with the Players Coalition, has committed $ 90 million to support efforts and programs to combat social inequality.
