While Colin Kaepernick has been aggressively pursuing a way back into the NFL, one team that has come up often as a potential landing spot is the Seattle Seahawks.

Kaepernick worked out with Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett in March, fueling speculation. While Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had previously said he had “regret” over not signing the quarterback after his time with the San Francisco 49ers, Carroll said recently that the team was not in active pursuit of him now. This is despite the Seahawks trading Russell Wilson and heading into the 2022 NFL season with Drew Lock as their presumed starter.

In the meantime, Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf was asked about the possibility of Kaepernick joining the team on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast.

“I would tell you if they brought him in. Like I have no say so and I’m gonna have to, you know, play with him and get along with him,” Metcalf said.

That’s not a “no” but it’s also not much of a ringing endorsement.

The Seahawks seem adamant about going into the season with Drew Lock and Geno Smith, whom they re-signed this offseason.

Meanwhile, Kaepernick’s quest to make it back into the league doesn’t appear to be getting much traction. It’s still possible that injuries and poor performances could still open the door for him down the road.
