Colin Kaepernick from 49ers to Seahawks

Colin Kaepernicknot only isopting out of his National Anthem protest, he optedof his contract with the 49ers. Now prepare for him to end up with,of allteams, the Seahawks.As weird as Seattle might soundbecause of Kaepernick and San Francisco's historyagainst their NFC Westrival, it's the likeliest of unlikely destinations.It would come withKaepernick having tolive with the disappointment of not being signed as astarting NFL quarterback. But it also would comewith a great opportunity for the 29-year-old to get his career back on track, in the right place.MORE: Why 49ers breakup needed to happenKaepernick at one point looked like he and Ru sell Wilson would have many epic duels as strong-armed, mobile pa sers with championships on the Ty Sambrailo Jersey line. It's hard to believe the 49ers-Seahawks cla sic NFC title game was played only three years ago, given what all has happened since.WilsonledSeattle to a ring after the 2013 season, something Kaepernickfell just short ofthe seasonbefore. While Wilson and the 'Hawks have remained a conference contender, Kaepernick faded hard right along with theNiners' post-Jim Harbaugh freefall.Before we get into that "other" thing that has keptKaepernick from finding his ideal second-team scenario, the Seahawks can be a great benefit to him finding his way on the field again.Kaepernick still has the basic skill set, with that arm and that mobility, to serve as an ideal seasoned backup to Wilson. That No. 2 role is currently held by second-year undrafted QB Trevone Boykin, an intriguingathletic talent whostill is more of a developmental project than insurance.Kaepernick couldabsorb many good thingsfrom Wilson by working with him in practice. Kaepernick's footwork, accuracy and mechanicsall have takenbig hits in his regre sion. Wilson, meanwhile, has pushed those aspects of his game to the top of the league.The twoused to Trindon Holliday Jersey be a lot different personalities as younger QBs. Kaepernick was Kaepernicking, and Wilson was Go Hawksing. Kaepernick has gone from his shoes to i sues, while Wilson Peyton Manning Jersey has traded bland for bold. Meeting in the middle, they couldmeshwellon the same depth chart.Kaepernick also has lacked both reliable coaching and a comfortable supporting cast since Harbaugh left. Pete Carroll couldprovide the stability for him on the sidelines, and Darrell Bevell has the offense to maximize his abilities. The Seahawks are in desperateneed of offensive line help, but they offer a diverse array of playmakers Kaepernick hasn't had since his early Niners starting QBdays.Here's the twist: Kaepernick, foiled often by the Seahawks' defense, has gained more respect from players on that unit. There was some Seattle solidarity with him during his national anthem protests, led by Jeremy Lane. Richard Shermanunderstoodof what Kaepernick was trying to do. Michael Bennett gavehis full support.Kaepernick reportedly won't be protesting like that next season, butmany potential future coaches and teammates still will feel theycan'tstand by what healready hasdone. Kaepernickdoesn't need to worry about that withthe Seahawks.MORE: What should 49ers do at QB?Kaepernick already Steve Atwater Jersey has a great challenge in finding another team because of how he's played football of late, including some durability concerns. Combined with the controversy, the reality is that his free agency options are limited.It will take a progre sive team with a particular need, and the Seahawks best fit the profile. The rest is on Kaepernick accepting that there's a good chance he isn't perceived as anyone's No. 1 anymore.Sure, it's a demotion, but it's also a favorable and maybe only road to redemptionand resurrection.Kaepernickdidn't seem to care that his actions and political statements would hurt his future earning power in the NFL. If he can accept taking le ser money, he shouldn't see settling for second in Seattle as a le ser move, but rather a nece sary one that can turn into a ble sing.The Seahawks' job for several seasons wasto stop Kaepernick. Don't be shocked if they're soon charged with restarting him as their backup.
