Baltimore Ravens Chose Not To Sign Colin Kaepernick After Girlfriend’s Tweet

Published

on

According to Ray Lewis, the Baltimore Ravens were close to signing free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick but elected not to thanks to a tweet sent out by the signal caller’s girlfriend.

“We [Baltimore Ravens] were going to close the deal to sign him [Kaepernick]” Lewis said on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL”.

“Steve Bisciotti said, ‘I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.'”

“And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day.”

The picture Lewis refers to was one posted in a tweet by tweet by Nessa Diab, Kaepernicks’ girlfriend, which compared a picture of Lewis hugging Bisciotti to a scene from the Quentin Tarrantino movie ‘Django Unchained’ where Samuel L. Jackson’s loyal house slave held Leonardo DiCaprio’s cruel plantation owner.

“His girl goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed” Lewis said.

“Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'”

Lewis said that if that tweet was never sent out Kaepernick would be in Baltimore with the Ravens.

“Then he’s flying him to Baltimore,” Lewis said.

“I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in.”

Jacksonville Jaguars newly acquired tackle Ereck Flowers, who infamously flopped for his former team the New York Giants, believes that the Jags will present a “better fit” for him than the Giants presented.

“Great opportunities, great team and I’m happy to be here,” Flowers said,according to the Florida Times-Union. “Definitely a fresh start for me. I like it here, man. I think this will be a better fit. They have a great locker room, great guys. I’m grateful to be here.”

While the Giants gave up on Flowers, despite his high draft status, the Jags are hopeful Flowers can contribute.

“Make no mistake about it, if we feel someone can help us or making a change is better for us, then we will do that,” Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said. “That is everywhere. It is hard when the whole team is not playing well.”

Texans’ Bill O’Brien Calls for Jadeveon Clowney to Limit Penalties

Published

on

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien is calling on Jadeveon Clowney to clean up the penalties he is getting flagged for this season, and balance the aggressiveness that he brings to the field out with a bit more control.

Clowney has been flagged 8 times during 6 games and has notched 13 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery thus far this season.

“Guys that play like he does – he plays the game in a really attacking way, and so people are going to use their cadence against him and he’s just got to be really focused on that” O’Brien said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“Then, the taunting call, like somebody asked me if I’m going to – yeah, I’ll talk to him about it, but I’m not going to go down the road of what. I think he just was just kind of messing around with the guy, but you can’t do that. You can’t do that, and that’s what they called and we’ll make sure that he knows not to do that anymore.”
