Ravens, Seahawks lead favorites to sign Colin Kaepernick
Now that the NFL has changed its tune regarding quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s employment opportunities, there have been a number of teams pegged as a potential landing spots. Of course, there is still plenty of speculation regarding the affect his hiatus from football has had on his game.
Although the Ravens have their future set under center with the reigning MVP in Lamar Jackson, they have still put an emphasis on shoring up a surplus of talent at quarterback. Kaepernick’s skill set as a dual-threat option would make him an ideal fit in the Ravens system alongside the likes of Jackson and Robert Griffin III.
Meanwhile, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll acknowledged the Seahawks’ interest in Kaepernick when they had him work out for them back in 2017 following his stint with NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers. Carroll has since expressed remorse for not signing him after all the criticism he received for becoming the first player to protest against racial injustice during the 2016 campaign.
Kaepernick would remain unsigned and effectively blacklisted from the NFL until commissioner Roger Goodell admitted his shortcomings on the league’s behalf. Giving him an opportunity could be a way for Seattle to right their wrongs while also gaining another quarterback that can make potentially make plays in and out of the pocket.
