Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick wants to play for the Baltimore Ravens. He’s been unemployed after opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers earlier this off-season.
Kaepernick knows if he wants to play in the NFL this season, he’ll have to do it with the Ravens, if they even sign him. According to NFL Network’s Mike Silver, Kaepernick “would absolutely love to play for the Ravens.”
While Silver says Kaepernick is willing to play again, albeit likely as a back-up, he says that the quarterback has not exchanged numbers with teams. Many Ravens fans are opposed to signing the free agent – and if they do sign him, they will receive backlash from it.
This will not be the first-time that the franchise has received backlash from an incident involving a player. Once the infamous Ray Rice video was released by TMZ, the Ravens received backlash for his initial two-game suspension, before being released and never playing in the league again.
Kaepernick is in a different boat for his own infamous video. He started a stance last season by kneeing during the national anthem.
Several players also took the same stance. However, Kaepernick has taken the most heat, as NFL owners are allegedly black balling him for what he did.
The Ravens may be in need of a back=up quarterback after Ryan Mallett’s disappointing performance on Friday during practice. He reportedly threw “at least” five interceptions.
He also botched a hand off during Saturday’s practice that caused a collision between Mike Wallace and Terrance West.
