Two of the strongest personalities on the Seattle Seahawks roster are coming to lend support to Colin Kaepernick.
According to Bob Condett of the Seattle Times, via Doug Baldwin — the Seahawks could take part in a team wide anthem protest put together by the wide receiver and Bobby Wagner.
To express a desire to bring people together, our team will honor the country and flag in a pregame demonstration of unity.

Wagner said he didn’t know if he would sit down during the anthem, but made it clear that — “anything we want to do, it’s not going to be individual. It’s going to be a team thing. That’s what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.”
The Seahawks haven’t said much as a team on Kaepernick’s protest, but it’s the one organization, especially on defense, where the majority of the personalities are not your typical NFL “yes men.” Whether it be Michael Bennett, Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Bobby Wagner or Richard Sherman, those brothas are going to speak their minds, walk their own walk — while daring someone from the organization to say something about it.
