Seahawks sign Stephen Morris as backup QB

On Friday, the day after news of the Kaepernick workout cancellation broke, the Seahawks signed quarterback Stephen Morris.

The day after his scheduled workout with the Seahawks, Kaepernick sat for his deposition administered by NFL attorneys in NY regarding the league's alleged attempts to conspire to keep him out of the league. Nevertheless, Kaepernick was "unwilling to give that assurance to them" and did not agree to that demand, Fox News reported.

According to Adam Schefter, Kaepernick's workout with the Seahawks, scheduled for Monday, was postponed when Kaepernick declined to stop kneeling for the national anthem next season.

However, NFL network's Ian Rapoport said the NFL team postponed the 30-year-old's workout due to there not being a "firm plan" in place and not because of Kaepernick's refusal to end his protest.

Kaepernick met with NFL attorneys in NY for his deposition regarding a grievance against the league's owners allegedly colluding to keep him from playing.

TMZ reports that the Zoolander star was one of three passengers in the vehicle when the accident happened around 11pm local time. The actor appeared at the event as his " Anchorman " character Ron Burgundy and was interviewed by comedian Billy Eichner .

The team wanted a guarantee that the NFL player would not continue to kneel during the 2018 football season if he was signed to a deal.

Until the Morris signing becomes official, Russell Wilson is the only quarterback on Seattle's roster. He did not play for any team during the 2017-18 season.

Kaepernick has famously kneeled during the national anthem as a way of protesting police brutality and systemic racism in the United States.

But Kaepernick has no desire to change his beliefs just to get a contract.

Judging by the fierce debate on Hill's Twitter page, the national anthem protest issue is still an emotional and divisive one.
