The Seattle Seahawks told Colin Kaepernick not to bother coming to a planned workout unless he promised he would NOT continue his kneeling protest … sources with knowledge of the situation tell TMZ Sports.

The Seahawks had invited Kaep to a workout roughly two weeks ago to potentially take a job as Russell Wilson’s backup QB, but the plans hit a snag on Thursday. The team reached out to Kaepernick with specific questions about his kneeling protest; and essentially wanted him to stipulate that if signed, he would NOT kneel during the 2018 season. In other words, the team wanted a guarantee Colin would stand during the anthem. Kaepernick would not agree to that stipulation so the Seahawks called off the workout, despite the fact travel plans had already been arranged.

There are reports the workout has been “postponed” and that the invitation is off the table.
