Seattle Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll said Thursday he received a call from an NFL team inquiring about Colin Kaepernick.

"So I know somebody's interested, and we'll see what happens with that," Carroll told reporters during a video conference.

Carroll did not disclose which team contacted him or whether the call came from a head coach or general manager. He also did not say if the team had been in contact with Kaepernick.

During the interview, Carroll shared that he regrets not signing Kaepernick in 2017 after the quarterback spent nearly a full day at the Seahawks facility.

The head coach also believes that Kaepernick was "right on point" with what he was protesting when he took a knee during the national anthem in 2016.

"He was right on the topics about police brutality and inequality, and he was right on the subject matter at the time." Carroll added.
