Baltimore Ravens latest move is last straw in Colin Kaepernick saga

On Thursday, John Harbaugh was asked about Kaepernick with the Ravens experiencing a potential need to bolster their quarterback position in lieu of starter Joe Flacco dealing with a back injury.

That familiarity is why John Harbaugh is a little off when he says, "I don't think it's different for us than any other team", in reference to the Ravens' vetting of Kaepernick.

Head coach John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens answers questions during a news conference at the teams training facility on September 8, 2014 in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Harbaugh brought up the possibility of signing free agent Colin Kaepernick on Thursday.

Colin Kaepernick has yet to find a new team. Now his football career has taken a dramatic turn with his signing with the Ravens.

Flacco called the situation a waiting game and said his return is dependent upon how he feels.

Olson, 25, just finished a 12-game season with the Kansas City Phantoms of the Champions Indoor Football (CIF) league, an indoor arena football league based in the Midwest.

I'm just speculating here, but chances are Kaepernick doesn't merely want to be a "camp arm," considering his National Football League experience that includes a Super Bowl.

If Harbaugh believes Kaepernick can help him win, general manager Ozzie Newsome will be alerted, and an offer would be proffered.

Does anyone know of another quarterback available right now who played for Jim Harbaugh?

Kaepernick remains unsigned after he parted company with the San Francisco 49ers following a 2016 season in which he attracted criticism by kneeling for the national anthem.

This isn't saying that the Ravens still won't go after Colin Kaepernick, but the chances look slim for the time being. Olson throwing to receivers who hope to make the roster, a temporary job, doesn't change that.

Kaepernick has been a man without a team since early March after opting out of his contract with the 49ers.

The good news was Flacco said he's getting better and reiterated that his Week 1 status against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 10 is not in jeopardy. Their star quarterback could miss 3-6 weeks with a back injury. We'll just see what happens with that.
