RENTON, Wash. Custom 49ers Jerseys . -- Colin Kaepernicks message is picking up support in the Seattle Seahawks locker room, with wide receiver Doug Baldwin and defensive end Cliff Avril considering a protest in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.Asked if he has considered taking a knee during the national anthem, Baldwin said, I have. I want to make sure that I get all of my ducks in a row before I do so.Added Avril: Were thinking about it. I am. I truly respect what Kaep is doing. I think some people are taking it out of context because theyre not experiencing the same thing other people are experiencing. They cant really see it. But as a person that does see it and does see whats really going on out here, I definitely could see me doing something about it as well.Baldwin recently posted a message on Facebook in which a member of the military told the wide receiver that hed support him if he were to kneel for the anthem.Baldwin and several of his teammates spent a day training with combat divers this offseason and have discussed their respect for the armed forces.After Kaepernicks initial protest, Baldwin said he reached out to the 49ers quarterback and talked to him extensively.My grandfather being in the military, it hit home for me as well, Baldwin said. Its the veterans. Thats more heartening to me than anything. Its the veterans that have reached out and said that thats what they fought for. Thats what they sacrificed their lives for was to give people back home under the flag, under the country, the opportunity to stand up or sit for what they believe in. So that was very heartening for me to hear that and that response from the veterans.Avril said he doesnt see the gesture as one that disrespects the military.Are you really disrespecting the military from the standpoint, like lets talk about the people that go to war, how theyre treated when they come back, Avril said. Lets talk about that. Thats the ultimate disrespect. But thats what this countrys built off of -- freedom of speech. So why is it a big deal that [Kaepernicks] able to display how he feels? Thats crazy to me. It cant be one-sided. It also depends on whos doing it.Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane sat on the bench during the national anthem of the teams final preseason game against the Oakland Raiders and said he was showing support for Kaepernick.Kaepernick was joined by his teammate, Eric Reid, in protest before the 49ers final preseason game.Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said the players have also discussed some kind of unified protest on Sunday.I do support Kaep in what hes doing, the message behind it, Wagner said. I think sometimes everybodys taking the message wrong because theres a lot of stuff thats going on, a lot of bad stuff thats going on. And that needs to be fixed. So at some point, youve got to do whatever you need to do to get that fixed.And I think what hes done is open up that conversation and make people talk about it. Whenever youve got the president talking about those types of things, its definitely getting his message across .I think its a very positive message. I think there should be justice and equality for everybody, no matter what your skin color is. And I think thats what hes fighting for because a lot of black people dont get that.Anything that we want to do, its not going to be individual. Its going to be a team thing because thats what the world needs to see. The world needs to see people coming together versus being individuals.Asked whether athletes should take into account that Sunday is 9/11, Baldwin said, Absolutely. I think that anybody should be thinking about that. Even if it wasnt September 11th, the point of the protest is to get people to think. I think its very ironic to me that 15 years ago, on September 11th, one of the most devastating times in U.S. history, and after that day, we were probably one of the most unified that weve ever been.And today, you struggle to see the unity. Its very ironic to me that this date is coming up. Its going to be a very special day, a very significant day, but at the same time Im looking forward to the many changes and differences that we can make in this country, to make better changes in our country.Avril said hes still trying to decide how to best get his message across.Im just debating on how or what I should do, he said. I think we should all bring awareness to it. I dont think were being disrespectful to the military or to the flag. I think were just trying to bring awareness to whats really going on out here. I think a lot of people are acting naive to some of the injustice thats going on out here.Added Baldwin: The point is to bring attention and awareness to your protest. To bring attention to whats going on. And I think thats what the issue is here is that were missing the message in terms of what were talking about. Its not necessarily about the messenger or about the protest itself. Its about what were pointing to. Custom Nick Bosa Jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired.
