REPORT: Colin Kaepernick Had Direct Talks with Ravens, Team ‘Weighing Decision’ To Sign Him
Ravens Are Consulting With Ray Lewis On Player Conduct & Whether To Sign Colin Kaepernick
On Sunday, Baltimore Ravens president Dick Cass said his team has had direct conversations with Colin Kaepernick and he has let them know that he wants to play football this season. After a back injury set Joe Flacco out for a few weeks, the team decided to pass on Kaep and sign an Arena League QB, but now the team is ‘weighing’ the decision to bring Kaepernick aboard anyways.
To help with that decision, the team has asked a bevy of former players for their advice on which direction they should take. Owner Steve Bisciotti has consulted with Ray Lewis, who has confirmed that he spoke with Kaepernick and was told by him that he would not be bringing his National Anthem protest into the new year.
The team also brought up Robert Griffin III as a possible option.
Kaepernick threw for 2,241 yards, 16 touchdowns and four interceptions in 11 starts last season.
