The Colin Kaepernick drama this offseason is just getting started.
Since his release from the 49ers last offseason, the former Pro Bowl QB has been utterly blackballed by the NFL for the role he played in bringing National Anthem protests to the NFL.
After missing all of last season, many thought Kaepernick would get his chance to return to the league this offseason and make an impact on a roster. The Seahawks had reported interest in him last year, and were going to arrange a workout with the former rival.

However, the Seahawks reportedly postponed that workout when Kaepernick refused to commit to stop kneeling during the National Anthem, which shouldn't be much of a surprise to those who know him.
If this is the case, then it's going to open up a media firestorm against the NFL once again. Not to mention the fact that this would add some serious credibility to Kaepernick's grievance against the NFL for keeping him off the field.
#Seahawks brass, John Schneider and Pete Carroll, want Colin Kaepernick to consider how he wants to proceed on everything (not just anthem) and get together at a later date when his plans are formed. Clearly, Seattle has accepted players speaking out for what they believe.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 12, 2018
It's not a good look for the Seahawks if this is true.
