Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has still not found an NFL team to sign with two months after the NFL free agent signing period started. Some rumors indicate that he is still a free agent because he has been asking for too much money and no one sees him as a starter. Others believe that NFL teams have blackballed him for kneeling during the National Anthem during the 2016 NFL season. However, Kaepernick might have found a home with the Seattle Seahawks and it might be a perfect fit.

Colin Kaepernick and the Seahawks' style of play

Colin Kaepernick is very similar in style to the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson. Both men have great running skills and usually throw safe passes with the ability to scramble out of the pocket if needed. If Russell Wilson is injured in 2017, Kaepernick could step right in without the Seahawks needing to change their style of play for a backup quarterback.

Right now, the Seattle Seahawks have Travis Boykin as their backup quarterback. In his two appearances during his rookie season, Boykin completed 13 of 18 passes for 145 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Russell Wilson was injured three times in 2016, so having a more experienced quarterback like Colin Kaepernick at their disposal would be nice insurance to keep the season from getting derailed in the event of a Wilson injury.

The Seattle Seahawks are also a team that has players that would embrace and welcome Colin Kaepernick. Both Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett have spoken out about the fact that Kaepernick is still a free agent. Sherman is one of the players who openly asked if NFL teams have blackballed Colin.

Colin Kaepernick's resume

While this might come as a surprise to some NFL fans, in his career with the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick ranks second when it comes to the lowest interception rate in NFL history.

As mentioned, he can also run the ball and has 2,300 career rushing yards, and can step in quickly if Russell Wilson goes down. In 2016 alone, despite the San Francisco 49ers failing to achieve any success, Colin threw 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions while rushing for 468 yards.

The big question is what the Seattle Seahawks are willing to spend on Colin Kaepernick. The idea is that Colin will sign a one-year deal, either for the veteran minimum just to play for a team that could win a Super Bowl, or for close to $2 million.

That is what Geno Smith was paid and Kaepernick has accomplished much more than Geno over the course of his NFL career.
