This news could put the final nail in the coffin for Colin Kaepernick’s career
The leading NFL anthem-kneeler, Colin Kaepernick, is still out of work.
He recently interviewed with the Seattle Seahawks who have a history of supporting political activist players.
But Kaepernick just got some bad news and it could end his playing career for good.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Seahawks are no longer interested in signing the former quarterback.
Colin Kaepernick and his attorneys took depositions in his collusion grievance from Seahawks' HC Pete Carroll today and from GM John Schneider on Wednesday, per source.

Kaepernick kicked off league-wide protests of the national anthem, which led to lower ratings and lost revenue for NFL teams.
After being out of the league, Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL for colluding against him.
After this latest news about the Seahawks, Kaepernick’s lawyer reportedly forced Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider to be deposed.
The Sporting News reports:
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider were deposed this week by attorneys for Colin Kaepernick in connection with the free-agent quarterback’s collusion grievance against the NFL, according to multiple reports.
According to ESPN.com, which cited unidentified sources, attorneys questioned Schneider on Wednesday and Carroll on Thursday.
The Seahawks could be a key piece to Kaepernick’s collusion grievance. They are the only team to have the former 49ers quarterback in for a visit since he became a free agent in the spring of 2017. Seattle canceled a scheduled workout with him after he wouldn’t commit to standing for the national anthem, according to multiple reports.
