Seahawks sign unknown as backup quarterback after postponing workout for Colin Kaepernick, reports say

The Seattle Seahawks have decided to sign Stephen Morris as a backup to quarterback Russell Wilson, according to multiple media reports, a day after reports surfaced that the team had postponed a scheduled workout for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Morris, 25, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014 and has spent time with several other teams but has never taken a snap in a regular-season NFL game.

Kaepernick, 30, is a former Super Bowl quarterback who opted out of his contract with the 49ers last March and ended up sitting out the 2017 season after no teams offered him a job. Many feel he is being blackballed by NFL owners after he started a movement by refusing to stand for the national anthem during the 2016 season as a protest against social injustice.

In October, Kaepernick filed a grievance against the league under the latest collective bargaining agreement, alleging owners had colluded against him.

His workout with the Seahawks was scheduled two weeks ago but was called off by the team sometime this week. ESPN reported it was because Kaepernick wouldn’t say he’d stop kneeling during the anthem; NFL Media said it was because the team wanted to know more about his stance on a number of matters, including the anthem.

Seahawks postpone visit after Colin Kaepernick won’t say if he’ll stop kneeling during anthem

Adam Schefter reports that Colin Kaepernick’s visit and tryout with Seattle has been postponed due to questions regarding the national anthem. (1:26)

After arranging for Colin Kaepernick to work out for the Seattle Seahawks this week, team officials postponed the trip when the quarterback declined to say he would stop kneeling during the national anthem next season, a league source told ESPN on Thursday.

Seattle still is considering bringing in Kaepernick for a tryout, and no decisions are final, a source said.

The Seahawks on Friday signed former Washington Redskins quarterback Stephen Morris, according to a league source.

Seattle had contacted Kaepernick about two weeks ago to arrange a visit to the team’s headquarters, but after tentative arrangements were made and travel was planned, the trip was unexpectedly scuttled over the Seahawks’ last-minute stipulation regarding Kaepernick’s anthem stance, a source told ESPN.

[Ian Rapoport] The #Seahawks did postpone a tentatively scheduled workout with Colin Kaepernick, as @AdamSchefter reported. It was surely not because he said he declined to stop kneeling, tho. The team asked for his plan moving forward on how to handle everything and additionaly there was not a firm plan.

Seahawks brass, John Schneider and Pete Carroll, want Colin Kaepernick to consider how he wants to proceed on everything (not just anthem) and get together at a later date within when his plans are formed. Clearly, Seattle has accepted players speaking out for what they believe.
