Seahawks reportedly postpone a Colin Kaepernick workout over protest uncertainty

Seahawks reportedly postpone a Colin Kaepernick workout over protest uncertainty

As Sports Illustrated noted, "for purposes of collusion analysis, Kaepernick's superior talent compared to some National Football League quarterbacks doesn't-by itself-prove anything".

According to the Seattle Times, the Seahawks wanted to know what Kaepernick's plans for off-field social activism would be going forward, including kneeling during the anthem. "There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder".

Kaepernick himself has been deposed under oath by the NFL's attorneys earlier this week in NY.

The Seahawks have been known for letting players be themselves.

It's unclear what that means exactly, but presumably the Seahawks want Kaepernick to enter the 2018 NFL season with an idea of what he will do before and during the national anthem and how he will respond to questions about whatever it is he does.

If Schefter's report is accurate, and the Seattle Seahawks postponed or canceled Kaepernick's workout due to his peaceful protest, it doesn't bode well for the team, or the NFL. Adam Schefter adds they may still consider bringing him in. McNair has said he was referring to team executives and not kneeling players. That's why he began kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner even knowing it could negatively affect his career, why he continued doing so even as the demonstration sparked a vast national controversy, and why he has declined to denounce the practice even as he has lingered in unemployment for the past year.

Sensex loses 93 points in early trade
SBI (-1.6%), Vedanta (-1.6%), Infosys (-1%), Tata Motors (-1.3%) and L&T (-1.3%) were the top losers in today's trade. In the morning Nifty 50 opened 131.30 points up at 10,259.70 and the Sensex opened 400 points up at 33,420.

Three NFL owners are on the deposition list for Kaepernick's lawsuit: Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots and Bob McNair of the Houston Texans.

There are reports the workout has been "postponed" - but we're being told it's off the table.

Head coaches John Harbaugh of the Ravens and the team's general manager, Ozzie Newsome, are also on the request list from Kaepernick's attorneys.

Reid, a Pro Bowl safety who took a knee during the national anthem the past two seasons, refused to give the Bengals assurance that he wouldn't kneel in the fall.

Reid, reportedly put off, declined to commit one way or the other and left without a contract offer.
