While he is one of the top-rated quarterbacks in NFL history when it comes to touchdown-interception ratio, Colin Kaepernick still can’t seem to find a home, even as a backup quarterback in the NFL. The most recent possibility was with the Baltimore Ravens. 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.

However, there is someone with more power than Harbaugh who might shoot down this possibility. ESPN reports that Ravens’ owner Steve Bisciotti does not want Kaepernick on the team.

Kaepernick’s possibilities

Colin Kaepernick was one of the most exciting quarterbacks in the NFL when he played under Jim Harbaugh on the San Francisco 49ers teams that made it to the NFC Championship twice. However, the last two seasons were atrocious in San Francisco, with horrible coaching and nothing Colin could do was able to overcome bad coaching.

Kaepernick still put up good numbers when given the chance but he had nothing around him to help the 49ers win.

With that said, Colin Kaepernick wouldn’t be starting with the Baltimore Ravens. He would back up Joe Flacco and he is considered a better option now than Ryan Mallett, the current backup quarterback. With Flacco recently suffering back problems in training camp, the need for a backup quarterback that can win is important and both head coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome believe that Kaepernick would be a good addition to the Ravens’ team.

The Ravens owners’ problem

Steve Bisciotti is not excited about the possibility of adding Colin Kaepernick to the Baltimore Ravens team. Sources told ESPN that there is at least one other team that wanted to sign Kaepernick but their owner blocked the move. Now, it seems that the Ravens might join that list. Interestingly, this almost proves that Richard Sherman was right when he said that NFL teams were blacklisting Kaepernick, especially if owners are blocking their coaching and front office decisions.

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. The New York Giants kept a kicker on the roster who was accused of repeatedly beating his wife and said that only on-field production mattered. When it came to Kaepernick, John Mara said that the off-field problems are why the Giants wouldn’t sign him, a clear case of bias.

Both John Harbaugh and Ozzie Newsome said that Steve Bisciotti has not blocked them from signing Colin Kaepernick but that the decision has not been made yet for the Baltimore Ravens.
