The most polarizing quarterback in the world may soon be back in the NFL.
That man is Colin Kaepernick, and the injury that could get him there belongs to Baltimore Ravens star Joe Flacco.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Flacco is expected to be able to return once the regular season arrives, but with back injuries, you never know.
Training camp has expanded rosters, so teams need more quarterbacks to properly evaluate the entire team, regardless of how capable they are of actually playing in the NFL.
The Chargers are bringing in a polarizing quarterback of their own for a visit in Robert Griffin III, but the better fit in Baltimore, for a variety of reasons, is Colin Kaepernick.
When the majority of the NFL was condemning Kaepernick and suggesting he didn’t belong on a roster due to his activity on the sidelines and off the field, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was publicly supporting him.
Former head coach and brother of John, Jim Harbaugh also lauded his ex-quarterback, saying Kaepernick could still be ‘great.’ Over the last few years he’s played through new head coaches, injuries, all on a putrid roster with Jeremy Kerley as his lead receiver.
If Kaepernick were to join the Ravens, he’d have wide receivers in Jeremy Maclin, Mike Wallace and Breshad Perriman that would represent massive upgrades.
Greg Roman, the Ravens senior offensive assistant and tight ends coach, was Kaepernick’s offensive coordinator during his peak in San Francisco.
