Ravens Owner: Protests Are a Factor in Considering Signing Colin Kaepernick
Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said Sunday he is considering non-football factors when deciding whether to add controversial quarterback Colin Kaepernick to the team. Kaepernick famously kneeled last year during the playing of the national anthem in protest of police brutality and racial injustice and declared free agency after the season ended. Though Kaepernick committed to standing during the anthem in 2017, Bisciotti admitted his past actions and their effect on the Ravens’ “brand” will factor into his decision. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was present at the forum, has previously insisted player decisions are made only on game performance.
