Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis provided Colin Kaepernick with some unsolicited guidance Tuesday, amid the quarterback’s political activism.

Kaepernick remains a free agent after opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers on March 3, while a bevy of sub-par passers inked deals throughout the summer.

“The football field is our sanctuary,” Lewis said. “If you do nothing else, young man, get back on the football field and let your play speak for itself. And what you do off the field, don’t let too many people know because they are going to judge you anyway, no matter what you do, no matter if it’s good or bad.”

Lewis’ advice is curious, especially as Kaepernick remains unsigned with the regular season speeding toward the horizon.

“If people really want to help you, they really want to help you, they’ll pray for you, brother,” Lewis said. “They’ll lead you the right way and stop encouraging you to be caught up in some of this nonsense. The battles you fighting, brother, people way before us have been fighting for many, many, many years.”
