Ravens Warned By Military Not To Sign Colin Kaepernick

March 06, 2018 - 1:57 pm

According to a TMZ report, "a high-ranking U.S. military official" warned the Baltimore Ravens not to sign Colin Kaepernick. 

Kaepernick became one the most talked about NFL players during the 2016 season as he often took a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality. 

While many people agreed and even followed his protest method, others, along with President Donald Trump, saw the protest as a sign of disrespect against the military and the U.S. 

 While Joe Flacco was still recovering from a back injury last summer, the Ravens were one of the only teams who seriously considered signing Kaep. 

According to the TMZ report, John Harbaugh sought advice from numerous friends about the potential new team member.

One of Harbaugh's friends, a military official, "didn’t outright say, “Don’t sign Kaep” — but advised the team to give Colin a set of specific guidelines he needed to follow if he wanted to keep his job,” per TMZ.
