Seahawks Sign a QB--and it’s not Kaepernick

With rumors that Colin Kaepernick would sign with the Seattle Seahawks after visiting them earlier in the month, the Seahawks have found their new backup quarterback--and it's not Kaepernick.


Kaepernick remains a free agent while other options such as Blaine Gabbert (Arizona Cardinals), Ryan Fitzpatrick (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), and now Austin Davis are signed with NFL teams. Davis, drafted by the Rams, has been a journeyman quarterback who most recently played for the Denver Broncos but has also spent time with the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns.

It seemed like the Seahawks were slated to sign Kaepernick; the Seahawks were the only team that actually brought him in for a team visit during the offseason. With OTAs now starting for NFL teams, it remains to be seen where Kaepernick will go at this point.

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday that the team has signed offensive lineman Colton McKivitz, who played college football at West Virginia, to his four-year rookie deal.
