Baltimore Ravens Won’t Rule Out Signing Colin Kaepernick

Published

on

The Baltimore Ravens will likely be in the market for a quarterback after news broke that Joe Flacco would miss some time due to a back injury.

“We’re definitely going to get another arm in here,” Harbaugh said.

One name being floated around is former San Francisco 49ers and current free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh wouldn’t rule out the team signing Kaepernick and had plenty to say about the unemployed signal caller.

“He’s a really good football player,” Harbaugh said on Thursday (h/t ESPN).

“I believe he’s a really good person. It all depends on a lot of things. It depends on Colin first of all and what’s his passion, what’s his priority, what’s he want to do, what kind of shape he’s in. So we’ll just see where it goes. I don’t think it’s different for us than any other team.”

Harbaugh knows just how good Kaepernick can be.

“But he’s not an arm, obviously. He’s an accomplished football player. You always like having good football players.”

Harbaugh has had contact with Kaepernick throughout the summer, mostly to discuss politics and history.

“He’s a great guy and he’s a guy right that’s being talked about,” Harbaugh said.

“We’ll just see what happens with that. It would all be speculation right now. I think he’s a really good football player, and as I said at the owners’ meetings, I do believe he’ll be playing in the National Football League this year.”

In regards to Flacco, Harbaugh gave an update on the status of the Ravens’ franchise quarterback.

“They’re recommending a week of rest. They say it should take care of it,” Harbaugh said. “I guess with the back, you can always say, ‘We’ll see.’ All indications from back specialist and Dr. [John] Carbone is he should be fine in about a week. That’s what we’ll be hoping for and praying for.”

“I think Joe with a week of rest here is not going to hurt our offense,” Harbaugh said. “It might help our offense in terms of developing some of the guys. I would rather go that route than go the other route and push it.”

Ray Rice Says He Is Done With Football

Published

Former NFL running back Ray Rice, who had been working to try and get a second chance in the NFL over the past couple of years, is no longer pursuing a comeback.

“I’ll be the first one to say it; I don’t have to retire to tell you I’m done with football” Rice said, during an interview on CBS This Morning.

“The pressure I was under of being a star, that was the person I hated the most.”

Rice was suspended indefinitely back in 2014 when a video surfaces showing Rice punching his then-fiancee, now wife, Janay Rice while the two were alone in an elevator.

Rice was never picked up by another team following the conclusion of his suspension, and his release from the Baltimore Ravens.

Rice said that he sees “similarities” between his situation and the one of former Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt, who was recently cut loose by the team when a video surfaced showing him pushing and kicking a woman in a hallway.

“Somewhere down the line everybody who’s sayin’, ‘Does he deserve a second chance for football?’ And this that and the other— I actually got my second chance” Rice said of Hunt, who cleared waivers and is now a free agent.

“During my darkest moments, and I used to ask myself, ‘How could she even be—want to support me?’ … That’s understandable. But I think what’s misunderstood about us is that the friends we were before the incident. That’s why, like I said, when I look at Kareem Hunt, I wanna know what his life was like. I want to know what happened in life. I know Kareem has apologized, and has expressed remorse for survivors of domestic violence.”

Ravens Trying To Entice Fans With Lower Concession Prices

Published

on

The Baltimore Ravens are attempting to win back fans and their latest plan is making a big step toward doing just that as the team announced on Tuesday that they will reduce concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium in 2018.

The Ravens have been on a mission to bring back fans who were angered by some players’ national anthem protests coupled with their 3-year playoff drought.

A series of moves have demonstrated their efforts. The team invited fans to ask questions at a media pre-draft news conference held a question-and-answer session with fans at the team facility with owner Steve Bisciotti, coach John Harbaugh and general manager Ozzie Newsome, and also have had team president Dick Cass meet and talk to fan clubs.

While the team has sold out every game during their 20-year history at M&T Bank Stadium, empty seats grew in numbers as the 2017 season wore on, and the no-shows are very obvious.

The organization is taking this initiative very seriously.

“It’s something I would really like to take a hard look at, and at least, come up with select items that we can do,” Bisciotti said back in February of this year.

“If it means us … I can’t make Aramark do that with me, but I can make them go along as long as it’s my share of the profits that I’m waiving. Yeah, I’d like to take a look at that. I think we could probably do that.”

There is an official news conference scheduled for Thursday where the Ravens will officially announce price reductions on concessions.
