Ray Lewis to Colin Kaepernick: Don't advertise social activism

On Sunday, Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said the team was still weighing whether to sign Kaepernick.

Some members of the Ravens support the plan to sign Kaepernick, who became controversial due to his kneeling during the playing of the national anthem as a sign of protest against social injustice in the country.

"We're very sensitive to it, and we're monitoring it and we're still, as (general manager Ozzie Newsome) says, we're scrimmaging it", Bisciotti said at a fan forum with National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell at M&T Bank Stadium. He also denied report that Bisciotti blocked the move, saying those who are making those claims are "wrong". "And that's why I take each and every one of these kids, and that's why I take them away from their environments and give them something else to see in life". "If any of your players ever do that, we are never coming to another Giants game". Starting quarter Joe Flacco is out due to a back injury, and coach Jim Harbaugh and Newsome are allegedly interested in Kaepernick as a replacement. "It's an emotional, emotional issue for a lot of people, more so than any other issue I've run into". Harbaugh has spoken directly about Kaepernick during training camp, acknowledging that the team is considering him. "We're very sensitive to it, and we're monitoring it, and we're still, as Ozzie says, scrimmaging it, and we're trying to figure out what's the right tact". Current backup Ryan Mallett has struggled running the first-team offense, reportedly throwing five interceptions during Friday's practice.

In their talk, Cass said Kaepernick remains committed to football and wants to play.

I do not want him to get another shot [TO START] here, but yes, he can come here and have some fun.
