John Harbaugh, Ozzie Newsome blocked by owner from signing Colin Kaepernick

Ray Lewis To Colin Kaepernick:

However, it seems that ship might have potentially set sail as the Ravens majority owner Steve Bisciotti has reportedly shown "resistance" to the idea of signing free-agent quarterback despite support from general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh, per ESPN's Dianna Russini. And he isn't the only owner doing so.

Kaepernick - who, as a member of the 49ers last season, became a polarizing figure since kneeling during the national anthem last season as his way to protest social injustice - has had a hard time finding another NFL job.

Then, according to NFL.com's Mike Silver, Ravens fans made it clear to the team that they didn't want Kaepernick signed, which echoed what Giants co-owner John Mara said of complaints from fans he heard earlier this offseason about the embattled quarterback.

"The football field is our sanctuary".

With Joe Flacco now sidelined due to a back injury, Baltimore is expected to be in search of another potential QB for insurance alongside current backup Ryan Mallett.

The Colin Kaepernick saga has continued to into August as training camps around the league have opened up while the quarterback remains a free agent. "We're monitoring it, and we're trying to figure out what's the right tact".

"I hope we do what is best for the team and balance it with what's best for our fans", Bisciotti said, telling supporters at a fan forum, "Your opinions matter to us". But if the injury lingers, Baltimore might be more inclined (out of desperation) to sign Kaepernick as a likely upgrade over Ryan Mallett. The Seattle Seahawks were the only team to interview Kaepernick after he opted out of his deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Just last month, the former Baltimore icon had strong words for Kaepernick, saying he has to decide whether he wants "to play football or do you want to be an activist?" "And that's why I take each and every one of these kids, and that's why I take them away from their environments and give them something else to see in life".
