Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick was set to workout for the Seattle Seahawks this week but the trip was postponed after he declined to stop kneeling during the national anthem next season, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

On NFL Live, Schefter said there is a possibility that the workout could be canceled. In May 2017, Kaepernick met with the Seahawks.

The team has an opening for Russell Wilson's back-up quarterback.

Kaepernick has remained a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017. He did not play for any team during the 2017-18 season. Kaepernick started protesting during the national anthem by taking a knee before games in the 2016 season. Kaepernick's protest is to raise awareness about the racial and societal injustices in America.

This news also comes after free agent safety Eric Reid was reportedly asked about kneeling during the national anthem by Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown. Reid was among the first players who protested with Kaepernick.
