Colin Kaepernick's lack of a new job has been one of the biggest stories of the NFL off season.
Kaepernick started 11 games for the 49ers last season and the team struggled to a 1-10 record. Kaepernick had a good individual season with 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions while averaging 6.8 yards per carry. Despite his on field success last year, Kaepernick still does not have a job.
The veteran signal caller has been linked to a few teams in the past few months, but recently, he has been looked at by the Baltimore Ravens after Joe Flacco's injury.
While some in the Ravens' organization are in favor of signing Kaepernick, the man in charge is not.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh & GM Ozzie Newsome support signing Colin Kaepernick, but have met resistance from owner Steve Bisciotti per sources— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) August 2, 2017
Bisciotti held a press conference earlier in the week and has expressed that Kaepernick has not been picked up for non-football reasons.
He has asked fans to pray for him as they make this tough decision and has brought Ray Lewis in to consult about signing Kaepernick. Take that as you will, but there are probably more important things in the world to be praying for than Mr. Bisciotti's difficult decision.
The Ravens are interested in bringing in free agent QB Aaron Murray per sources— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) August 2, 2017
The Ravens continue to bring in quarterbacks, which signifies that they have a need at the position.
Objectively, none of these additions are nearly as talented or productive as Kaepernick on the field. It will be interesting to see if Harbaugh and Newsome are able to convince Bisciotti to change his mind.
