"We really are", Carroll said during an appearance with "Brock and Salk" of 710 AM Seattle (via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com). "But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys". Kaepernick could benefit from a more stable coaching situation compared to that with the 49ers, a team which will have its fourth head coach in four seasons this year. Critics of his on-field performance pointed to continued issues with accuracy, touch and diagnosing defenses, but former coach Tony Dungy was one of the the latest people to allege that the quarterback is being effectively blackballed because of his national anthem protests a year ago. With more buzz surrounding him now more than the beginning of the free agent period, it will be interesting to see which team finally gives Kaepernick an opportunity to step back onto the football field. Both quarterbacks have traits that are similar to those of Russell Wilson, who is mobile and does some of his best work out of the pocket.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said second-round pick Malik McDowell will play some defensive end. Sherman told ESPN in March he thinks Kaepnerick is being "blackballed" and questioned why a QB like Matt Schaub had been signed while Kaepernick remained on the sideline. Earlier this offseason, reports tied the free agent to the New York Jets, but no contract materialized. You can see that.

However, Halep was improving all the time, and she broke again to level, and saved break point to hold for the lead, 6-5. The Frenchwoman will take on the reigning champion after overcoming world number nine Kuznetsova 6-4, 7-6 (4) on Friday.
The Seattle Seahawks are weighing two of the biggest names on the market to add depth behind Russell Wilson at quarterback. Granted, we're talking about Boykin being charged with two misdemeanors (marijuana possession and public intoxication), followed by a probation violation stemming from the prior the same incident. The 29-year-old, who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012, made headlines last season when he kneeled during the national anthem.
