Kaepernick, RG3 on radar of Seahawks

Adjust Comment Print

In an interview with KIRO-AM, Carroll was asked specifically about the pair of veteran quarterbacks who would seem to fit the style Seattle desires in Wilson's backup. "We're looking to keep it competitive there, too".

Wilson has been one of the healthiest QBs in the National Football League across his career, and has still never missed a start. Meanwhile Colin's former 49ers team finished the season with a record of 2-14 but Kaepernick was able to have a QBR of 90.7 while throwing 16 touchdowns during his 11 starts.

Kaepernick's decision not to stand for the national anthem became the NFL's biggest storyline past year.

The Seahawks have extended familiarity with Kaepernick after his run with the NFC West-rival San Francisco 49ers in the last five years. Another Seahawk in star cornerback Richard Sherman has come to Kaepernick's defense and claimed that him not being signed yet has nothing to do with his play on the field. You can see that. "So it's hard to understand", said Sherman in March. "They signed guys who have had off years before".

Europol: The Global Cyber Attack Is At Unprecedented Level
An worldwide manhunt was well under way for the plotters behind the world's biggest-ever computer ransom assault. Europe's police agency says the attack has hit at least 100,000 organizations in 150 countries.

Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III have drawn headlines this offseason because they haven't been able to find work as free agents. The only thing standing in his way from landing the backup quarterback job with the Seahawks is underrated free agent Trevone Boykin.

In addition, the Seahawks have an uncertain situation behind Wilson.

Trevone Boykin now serves as Wilson's backup for the Seahawks, but he could be subject to league discipline after being arrested for marijuana possession and public intoxication in March, as well as a subsequent violation of his probation.

Still, at this point it's fairly surprising - no matter your view on his protests last season - that a quarterback of Kaepernick's experience and talent is still available in the prime of his career.
