"Clearly, Seattle has accepted players speaking out for what they believe".

Free agent safety Eric Reid, who also took a knee to protest alongside his then-49ers teammate, reportedly was asked about the issue by the Bengals during a visit earlier this week.

The Seahawks have expressed the most interest in Kaepernick, who hasn't played in the National Football League since 2016, his final season with the 49ers.

The meeting was on the books for a couple weeks, but was abruptly shut down once the team insisted on knowing whether Kaepernick would stand during the anthem, according to the source.

Thursday's revelation is particularly notable given that Kaepernick is now suing the NFL, alleging that team owners and NFL executives colluded to keep him out of the league.

Seattle could look to add a veteran behind Wilson in order to potentially replicate what the Eagles got out of Nick Foles past year.

He started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2013, finishing the year with a 12-4 record a year after he helped lead them to Super Bowl XLVII where they ultimately lost to the Baltimore Ravens, 34-31.

The Seattle Seahawks don't now have a backup quarterback on their roster. They released backup quarterback Trevone Boykin after a domestic assault accusation from his girlfriend. Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the team, setting himself up as a free agent to potentially player for a different organization.

Those protests were held during the national anthem, which sparked a controversy that carried throughout the 2017 season, even when he wasn't on the field.

The strangest part, however, is that the Seahawks are tolerable of protests. The organization just simply wants him to have his plan sorted out in order for the team to best understand what to expect with him moving forward this offseason and into the 2018 season.
