Carroll cautioned that if Kaepernick gets that opportunity it may not be in Seattle. But Carroll says he thinks Kaepernick deserves a shot somewhere.

Carroll spoke extensively following Seattle's trade of Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos becoming official.

Seattle is without a proven quarterback following the trade. Kaepernick has long been linked with the Seahawks and earlier this week Seattle wide receiver Tyler Lockett caught passes from Kaepernick.
