He hasn't played a single snap in the NFL, but quarterback Stephen Morris is reportedly getting another crack at the NFL.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday morning that the Seattle Seahawks are signing Morris, the former University of Miami starter and former standout at Miami's Monsignor Pace High.
This news comes a day after the Seahawks postponed their Thursday visit with Colin Kaepernick that had been in place for about two weeks. That revelation that came about because, according to ESPN, Kaepernick did not say that he would stop kneeling during the national anthem next season.
So instead, the Seahawks went with Morris, a 25-year-old who has spent more time on waiver wires than in games.
His NFL history:
▪ Signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent following the 2014 NFL Draft. Released on Aug. 29, 2014., before being signed to the team's practice squad for the season. Released on Sept. 4, 2015.
▪ Claimed off waivers by the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 6, 2015. Released on Sept. 21, 2015, before being signed to the team's practice squad.
▪ Signed to the Indianapolis Colts' active roster on Dec. 24, 2015. Released on Sept. 6, 2016, before being placed on the team's practice squad. Elevated back to the Colts' active roster on Nov. 23, 2016, before being brought back down to the Colt's practice squad a week later. Released for good on Sept. 3, 2017.
▪ After not being in the league during the 2017 season, Morris signed a futures contract with the Washington Redskins on Jan. 2. He was waived on Monday.
In summary: Three seasons, zero snaps.
Meanwhile, Kaepernick — a five-year starter in the league from 2012 to 2016 and led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl berth in his first year as a starter — remains out of the league. Kaepernick drew national attention during the 2016 season when he knelt during the national anthem before games as a protest toward social injustice. It sparked a movement that became prevalent throughout the league last season.
Kaepernick filed a grievance against the league in October. The filing claimed owners colluded against Kaepernick in retaliation for his "leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States."
