Ravens Pass on Signing Kaepernick, Choose Arena Football Quarterback Instead

So much for Adam Schefter’s big scoop that the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens were ready to take the plunge by signing the controversial Colin Kaepernick to a contract due to starting quarterback Joe Flacco’s back injury.

You could practically hear the fluttering of the hearts of those who have become avid fans of the former San Francisco 49er for his anti-American stances including the protest of the national anthem before games last season.

The 49ers wisely cut ties with Kaepernick who has remained jobless, much to the dismay of liberal grievance mongers and ESPN commenters who still carry his torch trying to lead him through the darkness of unemployment.

Despite recent controversial tweets comparing the police to slave catchers and trashing the U.S.A. from Ghana on the Fourth of July, the FOCKers (Fans of Colin Kaepernick) are still hopeful that he will be suiting up this year for an NFL team.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it will be in Ravens’ purple – at least for now anyway – as Baltimore has chosen to bring in a player from arena football instead.

Sports Illustrated reports “Ravens Sign Arena League Quarterback David Olson”:

The Ravens have signed quarterback David Olson to participate in training camp with Joe Flacco nursing a back injury, the team announced Friday.

Flacco’s injury led to speculation that Baltimore would pick up Colin Kaepernick. Head coach John Harbaugh spoke positively of Kaepernick on Thursday. Even if Kaepernick had landed with the Ravens, he would have been competing with Ryan Mallett and Dustin Vaughan for the backup job, as Flacco’s injury is not considered serious.

Olson, like Kaepernick, has ties to Harbaugh’s brother Jim. Olson began his college career at Stanford before transferring to Clemson. He appeared in Stanford’s 55–17 win over Washington State in 2013 but did not throw a pass or carry the ball. He played only 15 snaps in three games at Clemson as a grad transfer in 2014, completing one of three passes for -1 yards.

Olson has spent the last couple of years alternating between desk jobs and quarterbacking in the Champions Indoor Football league.

For Kaepernick, it probably doesn’t get much worse in being passed over for this scrub outside of teams picking up homeless people hanging out underneath overpasses to fill their backup roles.

A mighty din is already arising from the FOCKers:

Perhaps the liberals can put together a #MarchForKaepernick.
