Baltimore Ravens Chose Not To Sign Colin Kaepernick After Girlfriend’s Tweet

Published

on

According to Ray Lewis, the Baltimore Ravens were close to signing free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick but elected not to thanks to a tweet sent out by the signal caller’s girlfriend.

“We [Baltimore Ravens] were going to close the deal to sign him [Kaepernick]” Lewis said on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL”.

“Steve Bisciotti said, ‘I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.'”

“And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day.”

The picture Lewis refers to was one posted in a tweet by tweet by Nessa Diab, Kaepernicks’ girlfriend, which compared a picture of Lewis hugging Bisciotti to a scene from the Quentin Tarrantino movie ‘Django Unchained’ where Samuel L. Jackson’s loyal house slave held Leonardo DiCaprio’s cruel plantation owner.

“His girl goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed” Lewis said.

“Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'”

Lewis said that if that tweet was never sent out Kaepernick would be in Baltimore with the Ravens.

“Then he’s flying him to Baltimore,” Lewis said.

“I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in.”
