Sebastian Janikowski To Visit Seahawks

The Seahawks are set to meet with an acclaimed kicker, and Sebastian Janikowski may have a taker for what would be his age-40 season.

Janikowski will make a Tuesday trip to Seattle to visit the Seahawks, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets.

“I’m not saying I’m going to stop being active because I won’t,” Reid told ESPN. “I’m just going to consider different ways to be active, different ways to bring awareness to the issues of this country and improve on the issues happening in this country. I don’t think it will be in the form of protesting during the anthem. I say ‘during’ because it’s crazy that the narrative changed to we were ‘protesting the anthem,’ and that wasn’t the case. I think we’re going to take a different approach to how we’re going to be active.”

No matter where you stand on the issue, it seems Reid will find a different avenue for his protest than during the anthem. It’s natural this topic would come up when Reid met with the Bengals and isn’t really cause for alarm. At least the Bengals were willing to give him a chance by bringing him in for a visit, which is more than any other NFL team can say at this time.

“It would be hard to say that he’s not getting any calls just on talent alone. I think any team that is considering him is going to weigh his political views and the strong stance that he’s taken the last couple years, and that’s unfortunate, but it’s just kind of what it is. So hopefully, teams will look past that and evaluate him as a player, and I think as a player he deserves a spot in this league. But I’d be kidding myself if I said that his stance isn’t playing a role in him not having a call yet.”

Reid chimed in himself:

Reid also said in March he didn’t plan on kneeling during the anthem this season, per the Associated Press:

“I’m not saying I’m going to stop being active because I won’t. I’m just going to consider different ways to be active, different ways to bring awareness to the issues of this country and improve on the issues happening in this country. I don’t think it will be in the form of protesting during the anthem.bills_012
