"But quite frankly, yes, we are looking at all those guys", Carroll said. And the good news for him is that the Seahawks don't appear to have ruled him out as an option.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is keeping his options open as he looks for a backup quarterback behind starter Russell Wilson.
Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has certainly had his fair share of controversy over the a year ago, but many Seattle Seahawks players, including Doug Baldwin, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Jeremy Lane, took to Twitter to support Kaepernick when he made the decision to kneel during the National Anthem last season. Sheil Kapadia of ESPN quoted Sherman in his article on why he believes teams haven't even reached out to Kaepernick yet. "So it's hard to understand", said Sherman in March. "If you're seen as a distraction off the field, for whatever reason, you better have a lot of talent going for you".
While the eighth-year Seahawks coach didn't single out these two passers, he did respond to a question about them by saying they are under consideration.
If Kaepernick were to land the gig as Wilson's back up, he'd be the best No. 2 at the position in the National Football League outside of maybe Jimmy Garoppolo - who is decidedly less experienced.
