Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick recently visited the Seattle Seahawks, but it doesn’t appear as if the two sides came close to reaching a deal.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the meeting with Kaepernick was “very productive,” but Kaepernick will remain a free agent.

Carroll also said he believes Kaepernick is a starter in the NFL.

“Colin’s been a fantastic football player and he’s going to continue to be,” Carroll said according to Yahoo Sports. “At this time, we didn’t do anything with it. We know where he is, who he is and we had a chance to understand him much more so. He’s a starter in this league and I can’t imagine somebody won’t give him a chance to play.”

The Seahawks have Trevone Boykin and Jake Heaps on the roster as backup quarterbacks at the moment.

If Kaepernick can’t reach a deal anywhere else, it’s possible the Seahawks could revisit bringing him in for next season.
