Seahawks sign Stephen Morris, not Colin Kaepernick, as backup QB

The Seahawks signed a backup quarterback on Friday, but it was not Colin Kaepernick.

Instead they signed Stephen Morris, a 25-year-old quarterback who has never taken a snap in the NFL, per multiple reports.

Morris -- who played at Miami in college -- was signed by the Jaguars in 2014 as an undrafted free agent but never entered any games.

Since then, he’s bounced around from the Eagles, Colts and Washington but failed to make the 53-man roster on any of those teams.

Morris’ signing comes just one day after it was publicly revealed that the Seahawks postponed a scheduled workout with Kaepernick after he would not commit to standing for the national anthem.

Other reports suggest the Seahawks wanted a firm plan on how Kaepernick would balance football and activism, which they had not received.

The signing of Morris does not necessarily mean the Seahawks are done looking for a backup quarterback.

Morris and starter Russell Wilson are the only quarterbacks on the roster and the team could look for a backup with more credentials as teams often carry more than two quarterbacks for offseason workouts.

Yet the timing of signing Morris after postponing a meeting with Kaepernick is likely to raise a few eyebrows.

Meanwhile, Kaepernick is still in the midst of a lawsuit against the NFL after he filed a grievance alleging collusion to keep him out of the league after he spearheaded the movement to kneel during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Kaepernick was to be questioned by NFL lawyers the day after his scheduled meeting with Seattle.

Kaepernick, 30, has not played a game in the NFL since he became a free agent after the 2016 season.
