In 12 games last season, Kaepernick completed 59.2 percent of his passes, averaged 6.8 YPA and threw 16 touchdowns with four interceptions.
Many fans and experts believe that Colin is being "blackballed" by execs in the NFL as his stand against the national anthem caused a major outroar throughout the season. "But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys".
With several players from Seattle standing up for him, Colin Kaepernick might have found the flawless opportunity with the Seahawks. Wilson's back-up last season, Trevone Boykin, has been arrested twice in the off-season and the team may want a more reliable figure.
"We're always looking at whatever's available, to keep it competitive [at quarterback], too", Carroll said. "He was over the center a lot, and he doesn't look like that kind of player in our system to us", Carroll said.
But the Seahawks also learned last season the that Wilson - while having been incredibly durable throughout his career, having never missed a start - is not immune to injury, potentially giving a little more urgency to solidifying the backup QB spot.
Seattle Seahawks rookie defensive lineman Malik McDowell will play some defensive end, head coach Pete Carroll said. You can see that. Carroll would not rule them out, which constitutes as news these days. Teams should be happy to have a leader like that, a guy who's dedicated to the people around him and he's dedicated to making their life better.
Harry Edwards, a sociologist who has served as Kaepernick's adviser, told USA TODAY Sports' Jarrett Bell three teams had reached out to him since the start of the offseason, though he declined to name which ones.
In addition to looking at signing veterans Kaepernick or Griffin, the Seahawks will also turn to the undrafted free agent pool.
