- Defensive end says ‘most people know why’ Kaepernick is still unsigned
- Seattle was lone team to bring in former 49ers quarterback for workout
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said “most people know why” Colin Kaepernick is still unsigned this late in the off-season, suggesting the free-agent quarterback has been excluded from the NFL due to his views on race and politics.
“I think the league is built on middle America, and most of the middle of America is predominantly a white crowd,” Bennett said on Wednesday. “That’s just the truth of it. I think race is not something that the NFL wants to be a part of or get behind. But the league is predominantly African-American.
