Pete Carroll talks out of both sides of his mouth when explaining why the Seahawks didn't sign Colin Kaepernick.
If you deem Kaepernick a "starter in this league", then why did you sign Austin Davis, who is "not"? The simple answer is media coverage. I mean look, Pete had to field questions about Kap and he's not even on the team, teams hate that. But, if Kaepernick is good enough to start, he's certainly an upgrade over the newest stiff to throw on a Seahawks helmet.
