Last week, Shannon Sharpe called out the African-American general managers to give Colin Kaepernick a chance. What better African-American GM than Ozzie Newsome. Baltimore Ravens fans lived by the creed, "In Ozzie We Trust," after he continues to make the moves that keep the team competing year in and year out.
If you have been living under a rock, you may not know that if the Ravens sign Kaepernick, he would not come without a media circus. During a preseason game a year ago, Kaepernick made headlines when he decided not to stand during the National Anthem. He never volunteered his reason, but when asked, he stated that he was tired of the injustices happening in the country.
Kaepernick received a lot of backlash for not standing during the National Anthem, but after a conversation with Nate Boyer, he decided that he would kneel to show respect for those who served but still maintain his point of not being pleased with the way African-American's are being treated in this country.
