“Ian, let’s not forget, you reported on it. They were going to do that with Kaepernick. They were going to sign Kaepernick a couple years ago until one ill-fated tweet sabotaged that. Again, they were ready to pull the trigger on this before Lamar Jackson was even on the roster.”
Rapoport confirmed that Kaepernick to the Ravens was almost a done deal back in 2017.
“That’s true, and I think at that point Greg Roman was not offensive coordinator but on the staff,” Rapoport noted.
The team ultimately decided not to sign him after Kaepernick’s girlfriend posted a picture depicting Ray Lewis as a slave who will do anything for his master.
That decision worked out great for the Ravens as we see Jackson is having an MVP-type of 2019 season.
