Baltimore Ravens Sign Former Arena League QB David Olson, Not Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick has yet to find a new team

On Thursday morning, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported the Baltimore Ravens had some interest in signing former 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick - who has obviously made national headlines over the a year ago. Probably - but the Ravens and GM Ozzie Newsome chose to go another route, signing QB David Olson to a contract. Coach John Harbaugh talked to reporters Thursday after day one of training camp and said that while Flacco's back soreness may not be serious, it is serious enough to keep him out of practice for at least a week.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has spoken with the free-agent QB this offseason.

With the Ravens ringing in the new football season with their first week of camp, questions regarding the team's slew of recent injuries - and who could potentially brought in to help - dominated the discussion.

"It depends on Colin, first of all, what he wants to do".

Though it appears that Kaepernick's options are dwindling, there may be still one other interested team. Olson played for John Harbaugh's brother Jim at Stanford. "Right now, standing up here, I feel great".

"It's so early on in camp that it's kind of useless to push through and maybe hurt yourself more. Harbaugh said [Kaepernick] is a really good football player and I believe he's a really good person".

The Ravens' Olson signing makes sense. Kaepernick's offensive coordinator with the 49ers was Greg Roman, who is now an assistant with the Ravens.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Ravens are adding the ex-Arena League quarterback who played for the Kansas City Phantoms.

But Kaepernick falls under the same category of familiarity.

In the Ravens' case, taking on Kaepernick would likely only occur if Flacco is going to miss significant time, because as a traditional pocket passer, Mornhinweg wants a similar type if the absence is short term. So we'll just see where it goes. We've craved specifics ever since Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers deal in March. We are dealing with a very temporary situation with Flacco that could last as little as a week, but which should be comfortably resolved before the start of the season.
