Carroll says Seahawks considering Kaepernick as backup

That includes Colin Kaepernick. He would join the Seahawks as a potential backup to Russell Wilson, who hasn't missed a start since taking the job as a rookie in 2012. He was arrested twice in the span of just over a week earlier this spring, first on March 27 for public intoxication and marijuana possession and later because that arrest was a violation of his probation from a December 2015 incident while he was at TCU. But Boykin hasn't exactly proven completely reliable, either. Another Seahawk in star cornerback Richard Sherman has come to Kaepernick's defense and claimed that him not being signed yet has nothing to do with his play on the field.

Carroll was appearing on 710 ESPN Seattle's Brock and Salk show and was asked if he would be interested in Kaepernick and another quarterback who has fallen out of favor, Robert Griffin III. Carroll would not rule them out, which constitutes as news these days.

"We're looking at everybody. He was over the center a lot, and he doesn't look like that kind of player in our system to us", Carroll said. We really are. We've been tracking everything that's going on, and we've got cap and roster issues and stuff like that that we're still trying to manage properly.

"We're looking at everybody". But if the Seahawks truly had no interest in either, he easily could say it wasn't something they were considering and they could not realistically be criticized for that stance.

In 11 starts with San Francisco last season, Kaepernick also posted a 59.2 completion percentage, but he threw for 16 touchdowns against four interceptions, with 36 sacks taken and a 90.7 rating.

Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich Hammers 'Embarrassing' Trump for Way He 'Conducts Himself'
The Spurs already were shorthanded after veteran point guard Tony Parker ruptured a left quadriceps tendon in Game 2 . As we saw in the Rockets series, the Spurs have a bevy of rangy wings that they can play if they want to go small.

During the Week 17 finale against the Seahawks, Kaepernick went 17-for-22 for 215 yards and a touchdown.

Kaepernick, 29, lost his starting job with the 49ers midway through the 2015 season and reclaimed it in October of past year. This is still a bottom-line, talent-based league where quarterbacks are in short supply.

That's right. Kaepernick could end up with the 49ers' division rivals. The question then would be what Kaepernick is asking for, contract-wise?

If you're of the opinion that Colin Kaepernick isn't deserving of an National Football League roster spot, then I don't know how to talk to you so you might as well just bop on out of here right now. But at this point, you can't rule it out either.
