Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick's search for a new team has centered squarely on the Baltimore Ravens, who very desperately need a new backup quarterback. The Ravens are hopeful that Flacco will overcome his back injury in the coming weeks, but just in case, they've been looking at all their options. Flacco still hasn't taken a snap, though he insists he's on the mend.

So, the question is, why does Kaepernick remain jobless?

Colin Kaepernick knelt last season during the National Anthem to protest the murders of unarmed young black men at the hands of police officers in America. Since then, quarterbacks of lesser abilities such as Geno Smith, Mark Sanchez, Matt McGloin, Blaine Gabbert, Dan Orlovsky, and others have been signed.

"It's all linked", Harbaugh said.

Ray Lewis wanted to clear a few things up. Over the weekend, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said that he was crowdsourcing the potential decision of signing Kaepernick with fans, sponsors and community members. "Your name is in my Bible that God gives you the vision that you did".

Kaepernicks fan “problems” go away as soon as he wins games, which is what owners should be concerned about. Head coach John Harbaugh has nothing but good things to say about Kaepernick, who played under his brother Jim Harbaugh with the San Francisco 49ers.

Sherman said it's ridiculous a player of Kaepernick's caliber remains unsigned while the likes of Josh McCown and Blake Bortles are expected to open the season as starting quarterbacks. "Your opinions matter to us", Bisciotti said this week. "I don't like the way he did it". There should be a lot more guys saying something. "I thought that if it's still a silent protest, the level of disrespect isn't as strong that way".

In six National Football League seasons, Kaepernick has passed for 12,271 yards with 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions, adding another 2,300 yards and 13 TDs on the ground.

The subject has transcended football in the Baltimore area. Newsome refuted the fact that Bisciotti blocked any proposed signing of Kaepernick.

Lewis seems supportive of Kaepernick, but asking him not to speak out on what he believes in doesn't seem like the best advice.
