Colin Kapernick reached out to Seahawks' Pete Carroll
With the Seattle Seahawks recently dealing Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos, could it be that Colin Kapernick is about to fill the vacant QB post?
Once considered one of the best in the league, could it be that the controversial quarterback is about to get a second chance?
Could Colin Kapernick play for the Seattle Seahawks?
According to recent reports, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is preparing himself for a return to the NFL. Indeed, ESPN's Adam Schefter revealed that Kapernick was "in the best shape of his life" and is in fact ready to sign for any team with a quarterback vacancy that wants to win a Super Bowl. Further to that it is now understood that Kapernick has gone as far as to train with the Seattle Seahawk's wide receiver, Tyler Lockett. When speaking about the workout, the veteran receiver made it clear that he believes Kapernick is ready. There are even videos circulating online and it would seem that Kapernick is looking sharp. What specifically makes the session with Lockett noteworthy is the fact that the Seahawks are currently on the hunt for a new quarterback having recently traded Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos.
Seahawks' Pete Caroll spoke with Colin Kapernick
On Wednesday the Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll added further weight to the speculation when he disclosed that Kapernick had actually reached out to him regarding the possibility of joining Seattle. Carroll even admitted that the former 49er had sent him videos from the aforementioned workout. Carroll went on to say that he believed Kapernick should get another stint in the league, however, he would not be drawn on whether or not his team would be offering the out of work QB that very opportunity.
"Does that guy deserve a second shot? I think he does," Carroll said. "Somewhere, I don't know if it's here I don't know where it is. I don't even know if it's in football, I don't know." Kapernick for his part last played on January 1st back in 2017. He has since participated in varying private events and was even offered the opportunity to train in a private NFL sponsored session in 2019, but would later withdraw due to league stipulations for the event. Will Kapernick be the Seahawks new quarterback and if not where will he go? Questions that remain unanswered, but by the looks of things that may soon change.
