Seahawks “making less excuses” for keeping players on their draft board

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

After a strong run of drafts from 2010-2012 that helped build the Seahawks into a Super Bowl champion in 2013, Seattle has been far less effective in finding top-tier talent in the NFL Draft over the last several seasons. G.M. John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that the team has reduced the number of players that will make their final draft board as they look to weed out a greater number of prospects they view as problematic.

The Seattle Seahawks have not closed the door on potentially signing quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a backup, head coach Pete Carroll said Monday. "We're still looking at guys and evaluating," Carroll told reporters when asked about Kaepernick at a pre-draft press conference.

The Seattle Seahawks had a workout scheduled with Colin Kaepernick in early April, but reportedly canceled it after the free-agent quarterback declined to ensure that he would not kneel during the national anthem. Seattle then signed 25-year-old quarterback Stephen Morris, who has never thrown a regular-season NFL pass. The Seahawks were in need of a backup after cutting Trevone Boykin, who was accused of a vicious assault that left his girlfriend hospitalized for three days with her jaw wired shut.

The future of Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor remains up in the air, and that won't change until at least June or July, general manager John Schneider told reporters on Monday. Schneider said at his pre-draft press conference that Chancellor will undergo a scan on his neck in late June or early July to determine whether or not he will be medically cleared to continue playing. Based on that timeline, Chancellor won't be able to participate in any offseason activities, and a determination on his future won't be made until just a few weeks before the start of training camp, which usually begins in mid-July.

In a stranger turn of events, President Trump is a player in both stories. Professional football player Colin Kaepernick continues to make headlines without even putting a cleat on the gridiron. The Seattle Seahawks abruptly canceled a planned workout with the quarterback, perhaps because he refused to reassure them that he would leave his social justice statements off the field.

As much as the National Football League was hoping the off-season would help its efforts to make fans forget about the kneeling during the national anthem protests, it’s still alive and kicking.

Kaepernick has been unable to find a job in the NFL since leaving the 49ers as a free agent, even while quarterbacks perceived as lesser talents have been signed.
