Back in March, Pete Carroll talked about Colin Kaepernick's effectiveness as a quarterback. "We've really seen him at his best, and we've seen him be a very difficult factor to deal with. The last couple of years, the offense has been changing, and they've had new coaches and all kinds of stuff. I don't think he's found that level that he found when he was with Jim [Harbaugh] that they were really on it. But it's there to be had, and I think he's a difficult guy to play against. We've always found that. We've given respect to that whenever we've had to play them."

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick is visiting with the Seattle Seahawks today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Pete Carroll said last week that the team was exploring the idea of adding Kaepernick. The Seahawks need a backup to Russell Wilson, and signing Kaepernick would make sense. Carroll values ball security and wants a backup with mobility. Kaepernick has the second-lowest interception rate in the history of the NFL and would be able to execute the read option and bootlegs that are a part of the Seahawks' offense. NFL Network first reported the visit.
