Seahawks were ‘curious’ about Colin Kaepernick, but ‘disappointed’ to miss training session
Colin Kaepernick’s NFL comeback could be dead in the water. After no reported interest is known following his Saturday work out outside of Atlanta, the likelihood of him playing in the league is slim. But, there may have been a chance with the Seattle Seahawks.
Reports have now surfaced, revealing that certain teams — outside of the eight who went to his workout outside of the Atlanta Falcons facility — were interested in seeing what he has to offer. One of those teams was the Seahawks.
Head coach Pete Carroll confirmed that his staff, along with other NFL teams, was already in the Falcons’ facility when they were notified of the venue change a couple of hours prior. He and his team weren’t able to make the necessary preparations and missed out on his 40-minute workout.
“Disappointed,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk’s Charean Williams. “We had planned to be at that workout. It got changed around, and we couldn’t hang with it. Unfortunately, we sent somebody, but we couldn’t stay with the changes that happened. We missed it. We were real curious. I was real curious to see how the workout went. Just competing as always, you know.”
Carroll also confirmed that his team received the video of the workout and reviewed it. While they might have liked what they saw from a football perspective, they didn’t find it compelling enough to test the waters with the polarizing quarterback.
Kaepernick has not played a snap of professional football after the 2016 season ended. With the way things are going at the moment, it seems as if his chance for a comeback has come and gone.
