The Seattle Seahawks plan to add a backup quarterback not named Colin Kaepernick.
The Seahawks signed free-agent signal-caller Stephen Morris, the team announced Friday.
The news comes a day after it was made public that Seattle postponed a scheduled workout with Kaepernick until they know more about his stance on matters related to the national anthem, his collusion lawsuit against the NFL and his other positions against social injustice.
Signing a quarterback like Morris shouldn't stop the Seahawks from taking another look at Kaepernick, should they choose to do so. With Russell Wilson currently the only signal-caller on the roster, Seattle needs arms to conduct offseason workouts, which begin Monday with conditioning sessions.
