Baltimore Ravens Continue to Resist Signing Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick would be a great addition to any team from a football standpoint. He could serve as a very viable backup QB option to any team in the league. The problem is, however, the luggage that he brings with him.

In one of the largest football stories in recent memory, Kaepernick decided to kneel during the national anthem last season in an effort to protest police oppression of black America. This was a huge issue that ripped through the league. Regardless of whether a fan agrees with his stand or not, this will always follow him no matter where he goes and is likely the reason why he is not currently on a team.

The most recent talks surrounding Kaepernick have involved the Baltimore Ravens. While both general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh are in support of signing Kaepernick, it has been reported that majority owner, Steve Bisciotti, has shown “resistance” this idea.

“We are going through a process, and we have not made a decision,” Newsome explained. “Steve Bisciotti has not told us we cannot sign Colin Kaepernick, nor has he blocked the move. Whoever is making those claims is wrong.”

As for the Ravens current quarterback, Joe Flacco, he is in complete support of Flacco competing for a starting job, just not on his team.

“I would like to see Colin get back in [the NFL] and, at some point, maybe get another shot [to be a starter],” Flacco told reporters. “I wouldn’t like that to be here. I do not want him to get another shot [to be a starter] here, but yes, he can come here and have some fun. I think it would be a good spot for him.”

At this point, it seems that Kaepernick will end up in an NFL uniform at some point; the only question is what team will this be for?
