Kaepernick has been linked to the Ravens since news of Joe Flacco’s back injury emerged. Flacco has insisted his injury is minor and his Week 1 status is not in doubt, but some reports suggest Flacco could miss more than a month of training camp.
The connection between Kaepernick and the Ravens is obvious. Kaepernick enjoyed his best years in the NFL playing under former San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, brother of Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
Kaepernick has generated very little interest on the open market since opting out of his deal with the 49ers earlier this year. He was briefly linked to the Seattle Seahawks, but nothing came to pass.
The cause of Kaepernick’s difficulty finding his next NFL job has been hotly debated, with some accusing teams of blackballing Kaepernick for his national anthem protests in 2016.
Others have suggested Kaepernick wants to be paid as a starting quarterback and no team is willing to offer that, though Silver reports Kaepernick has not discussed money with any team.
The Ravens added former Arena Football League quarterback David Olson on Friday, but Harbaugh said the move won’t preclude the team from adding Kaepernick.
