Two and a half months after that post hit the airwaves, Lee is making headlines yet again. Officially, there probably would be no reason for the Seahawks to hold back a signing announcement, if indeed one happened.
Does Spike Lee know something we don't?
The famous film director posted a photo Saturday morning, thanking Pete Carroll and the Seahawks for signing Colin Kaepernick.More news: Singer-songwriter Gregg Allman dies

Five years after Rob Lowe incorrectly "reported" that Peyton Manning would retire, Spike Lee has "incorrectly" reported that the Seahawks have signed Colin Kaepernick. "Much Success for the coming National Football League season".
Kaepernick recently visited the Seahawks as part of the club's ongoing search for a backup quarterback to star QB Russell Wilson and multiple reports indicated the meeting went very well.
During the 2016 season, Kaepernick threw 16 touchdowns to just 4 interceptions, passed for over 2,000 yards, and ran for an additional 468 yards while playing in just 12 games.
