Ray Lewis Says Colin Kaepernick’s GF Calling Him An ‘Uncle Tom’ Is The Reason Ravens Didn’t Sign Him
Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis claimed to have candid conversations with Colin Kaepernick, who promised him that he was done with the National Anthem protests.
Ray Lewis then discussed Kaepernick on various sports shows and sent out a personal video to him to keep his social activism quiet. That was enough for Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa, to take to Twitter and post a damning photo with an image of Leonardo Dicaprio and Samuel L. Jackson from the movie “Django Unchained” at the top, and an image of Ray Lewis and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti at the bottom.
(Dicaprio was the racist slave master and Samuel L. Jackson was his house slave in the movie, in case you haven’t seen it.)

For that reason alone, Ray Lewis claims the Ravens decided not to sign Kaepernick.
Per Inside the NFL release, Ray Lewis believes the Ravens were ready to sign Kaepernick until Kaepernick’s girlfriend offended with a tweet.

Mike Freeman, who has had his ear to the NFL streets for over 30 years, called BS as soon as the news dropped about why Ray and the Ravens didn’t sign Kaepernick.
No way in hell story Ray Lewis told about Kaepernick on Inside the NFL is true. No way in hell.
No. Way. In. Hell.
