Regarding Colin Kaepernick, here is an NFL player who has proven to the public that he can play football. And we the fans want to win every Ravens game possible. He has been trained by one of the best coaches — a coach who knows what he can do. So, what is the problem in signing him?
I really don't understand why the Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti states that we the fans must "pray for us" as team officials decide what to do ("Kaepernick's voice," Aug. 1).
Mr. Kaepernick took a stand on police brutality with his decision not to stand during the national anthem. Then, to Mr. Bisciotti and the Ravens team officials, why not educate the Ravens Fans and the NFL that it is poor etiquette to applaud at the end of the National Anthem, whether played, sung, with a flag or none, in a concert hall or church or outdoors, with or without an honor guard.
Now let's talk business here. Joe Flacco is on the list as one of the top quarterbacks in NFL, and we Ravens fans are very proud to have him on our team. We don't want him hurt, but should he get injured, wouldn't Mr. Kaepernick be a great asset? If we are making a decision between signing Mr. Kaepernick or Robert Griffin III, fans, you better wake-up on this. Mr. Griffin is always getting hurt and has no arm now for throwing.
So, Mr. Bisciotti and Ozzie Newsome, please sign Colin Kaepernick today.
