On Thursday, after it was announced that Ravens QB Joe Flacco would miss some time with a back injury, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens had some interest in free agent QB Colin Kaepernick. However, on Friday, the team signed arena league QB David Olson. At this point, it seems Kaepernick to the Ravens will not happen.
According to the NFL Network’s Michael Silver, Kaepernick is interested in joining the Ravens. Kaepernick, who was coached by John Harbaugh’s brother Jim in San Francisco, has a relationship with John Harbaugh. The two have spoken this offseason, according to John Harbaugh.
In addition, Flacco seems okay with it:
“I would like to see Colin get back in [the NFL], and at some point, maybe get another shot [to be a starter]. I wouldn’t like that to be here. I do not want him to get another shot [to be a starter] here, but yes, he can come here and have some fun. I think it would be a good spot for him,” Flacco said at a press conference on Friday.
Maybe this could happen. The Ravens current backup QB Ryan Mallett reportedly had an awful day at practice on Friday, so Baltimore might need an upgrade.
