Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has reached out to Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll for another chance to play in the NFL after he last appeared in the league back in 2016.

As the Seahawks are on the lookout for a new QB following Russell Wilson’s trade to the Denver Broncos, Kaepernick could be the answer for Seattle.

The 70-year-old coach spoke about the former QB wanting to make his return to the NFL after a few notable unfruitful efforts the player made in 2017-2019. According to Carroll, Kaepernick sent a video of him working out with Seattle wide receiver Tyler Lockett.

“He contacted me the other day and said, ‘Hey, I’d like to get a shot. I’m working out,’” Carroll said. “And so he sent me some video and next thing I know he’s working out with Tyler Lockett. I don’t know how that happened.”

It remains unclear whether Kaepernick will sign with Carroll’s team. However, Carroll himself thinks that the 34-year-old deserves a second chance.

When asked about it, Carroll replied “Who knows? I don’t know. We’ll see.”

Kaepernick played six seasons for the 49ers from 2011 to 2016. He made his last appearance with the franchise and parted ways from the sport when he began kneeling down to take a stand against police brutality as well as racial injustice in 2016.

The former QB was joined by a few others and teammate Eric Reid, but politicians, team owners, fellow players, and fans criticized his stance. This event affected his football career and the player has yet to have any team sign him.
