'Nothing imminent' between Colin Kaepernick, Seahawks

John Mara Giants signing Colin Kaepernick would lead to intense backlash

John Mara Giants signing Colin Kaepernick would lead to intense backlash

In an interview with Jenny Vrentas of The MMQB, Mara explained his statement, saying in "all my years being in the league, I never received more emotional mail from people than I did about that issue". "'If any of your players ever do that, we are never coming to another Giants game.' It wasn't one or two letters". "It wasn't one or two letters".

Those other issues apparently include domestic violence, something Mara and the Giants dealt with last season with kicker Josh Brown.

Think of the 2016 National Football League season - before Tom Brady's fifth Super Bowl ring or Aaron Rodgers' Hailmary's - and you'll remember the storyline that nearly took over the entire campaign.

Wide receiver Torrey Smith, now with the Philadelphia Eagles but a teammate of Kaepernick's for the past two seasons, took offense to Mara's comments in a series of tweets Monday.

Even though the Giants never defended Brown's actions and eventually released him when they learned the entire situation, the public perception is that Mara won't sign Kaepernick but was okay with giving Brown an extension.

But obviously, as the game wore on, the quality and our movement started to pay dividends. "He's a wonderful player". Rodgers added: "We plan for every competition domestically to do that and thankfully we have been able to do that.

It looks like Colin Kaepernick's controversial free agency could continue with the summer quickly approaching.

Sirius XM's Pat Kirwan says he doesn't believe the Seahawks will be moving forward with Kaepernick, who traveled to Seattle last Wednesday and met with the team.

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made a decision to take a stand against racial injustice in the United States by taking a knee during the national anthem.

The Seahawks are, by far, the team that's shown the most interest in Kaepernick in 2017.

That Kaepernick remains unsigned has been the subject of increasing debate (here is a good analysis from OTC's Jason Fitzgerald) and the Seahawks are the first team he has visited since becoming a free agent three months ago, that also may not mean he will take the first offer of any kind that comes his way.
