Head Coach Pete Carroll is the latest Seattle Seahawks official to assure fans that Colin Kaepernick is still in the running to join the team.

Carroll went took pains to note that Kaepernick is not out of consideration, telling the Tacoma News Tribune, “The discussion and the opportunity is still open.”

But Carroll added, “that’s what I can’t get into” when asked if Kaepernick’s position has been undermined because he will not pledge to put an end to his protests during the playing of the national anthem.

During an interview on KJR’s Dave Softy Mahler show, Carroll also said “We’re just trying to figure out what’s best for us,” TMZ Sports reported.
