Why Baltimore Ravens should sign QB Colin Kaepernick

Adjust Comment Print

David Olson the former Clemson and Stanford quarterback who recently played with Kansas City Phantoms of the CIF has signed with the Ravens.

Kaepernick's been linked to several teams as possible landing spots as a backup, notably the Seahawks and Ravens, but never Miami.

The Baltimore Ravens had to sign a new quarterback after Joe Flacco suffered a back injury that will keep out of practice for a while.

During a press conference Thursday, Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh told reporters Thursday that he would "not rule it out at all".

A back injury to Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco may not be as serious as initially thought. It all depends on a lot of things.

Even with the team being interested in Colin Kaepernick, the Ravens chose to go a different direction. While at Stanford, he played under Jim Harbaugh who gave his brother John a solid reference for Olson who now finds himself on an National Football League roster. When national anthem protests spread into a league-wide controversy a year ago, started by Kaepernick, Ross was more outspoken than any of his peers when it came to supporting the players. "Right now, standing up here, I feel great". Kaepernick's offensive coordinator with the 49ers was Greg Roman, who is now an assistant with the Ravens.

Mallett's deficient play should persuade the Ravens to sign the top free-agent QB on the open market.

Other teams don't have a coach who happens to be the brother of the man who coached Kaepernick to his best career QB ratings in given seasons, 98.3 and 91.6 in 2012 and 2013, respectively. But, there is a common thread that links Harbaugh to Kaepernick -a level of familiarity. Bringing in Kaepernick would place pressure on every quarterback, including Flacco.

Many believe Kaepernick is being passed over due to the publicity he's generated while trying to spread awareness of social inequality in America, and a quick look at Twitter after Olson's signing proved just how polarizing a figure Kaepernick is. "We can take our time a little bit with it, not that I want to, but we can", Flacco said.

Flacco is undergoing some rehab, but mostly just resting. We've craved specifics ever since Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers deal in March.
