Lewis, who never says the words "police" or "brutality" in his comments but gestures vaguely at "people talking", says that if people really want to help Kaepernick, they'll pray and "stop encouraging you to be caught up in some of this nonsense".

These moves drew the ire of many who think Kaepernick is being intentionally kept off of rosters around the league by owners and front offices that either don't support his decision to kneel during the national anthem or are concerned of their fanbases' reaction to his potential signing.

The Ravens issued a statement disputing the report Wednesday morning. "I'll frame that this way: there are other positions we're looking at and I don't have any updates on those either".

Some people in the Ravens' organization might be seriously interested in signing Colin Kaepernick, but the only voice that matters is team owner Steve Bisciotti who, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini, is hesitant to bring in the controversial quarterback. "Whoever is making those claims is wrong".

Kaepernick has been a free agent since March 1.

The Ravens signed journeyman quarterback Josh Woodrum as a third-string quarterback. "The battles you fighting, brother, people way before us have been fighting these for many, many, many years". "And we talked and then got to know him very well when he scrimmaged here". "I would like to see Colin get back in [THE LEAGUE] and, at some point, maybe get another shot, [to be a starting quarterback]", Flacco told reporters. Ryan Mallett and Dustin Vaughan are filling in until Flacco returns, but Mallett struggled with the first-team offensive unit, tossing at least five interceptions in one workout.

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?"
