Colin Kaepernick is excited at the prospect of playing for the Ravens. Question is Ravens fans – do you want him?
Citing sources familiar with Kaepernick’s thinking, NFL Network’s Michael Silver reported Saturday that Kaepernick would be happy to play for the Ravens — even on a short-term basis — and the quarterback hasn’t discussed money with any teams since leaving the 49ers.
On Thursday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh mentioned Kaepernick as a possible option for the team as quarterback Joe Flacco deals with a back injury. The Ravens signed arena league quarterback David Olson yesterday.

“There’s been talk out there that he wants a lot of money. I am told that he has had zero discussions about money with any team since his opt-out from the 49ers. So that is not true,” Silver said on Inside Training Camp Live. “There is speculation that he may not want to play for the Ravens. That is also not true. Colin Kaepernick absolutely would love to sign with the Baltimore Ravens. He feels like he has a great relationship with John Harbaugh, of course whose brother, Jim, was his coach in San Francisco. Greg Roman, his offensive coordinator in San Francisco, is the offensive coach with the Ravens.”
“I believe they are considering this, having signed a camp arm not withstanding which I don’t think would preclude them. Certainly there are some people out there who have reacted negatively and let the Ravens know, but there’s also a huge wave of people who have responded very positively to Colin Kaepernick’s calls for social justice. He has the 17th-highest selling jersey still in the NFL, a 49ers jersey. I think it’s a complicated situation for the Ravens, but they are still considering it. The issue is not Colin Kaepernick not sure what he wants to do. He would be super happy, I am told, to sign with the Baltimore Ravens. We’ll see what happens.”
So, what do you want fans?
