Ravens have spoken with Colin Kaepernick, checking with sponsors, fans, Ray Lewis

Insert Ray Rice, Ray Lewis jokes here.

The Baltimore Ravens signed free agent David Olson earlier this week following Joe Flacco’s back injury, but they might not be done addressing the position. Team president Dick Cass said the team has had “direct discussions” with Colin Kaepernick about joining the team, according to Ravens beat writer Jeff Zrebiec. Owner Steve Bisciotti said the team is also discussing bringing in Robert Griffin III for a workout.

Cass and Bisciotti were speaking at a fan forum today, and naturally got questions about Kaepernick and the Ravens quarterback position. Cass said Kaepernick made it clear he wants to play and the Ravens are currently weighing the decision. Cass said the team has heard from a lot of fans about Kaepernick, while a fan asked Bisciotti about potentially damaging the Ravens brand by bringing in Kaepernick.

The organization appears to be reaching out to a variety of people with regard to making a decision on Kaepernick. Bisciotti spoke with Ray Lewis, and Cass said they are reaching out to both fans and sponsors about the idea of bring in Kaepernick.

There is no word on fan or sponsor thoughts on the team’s handling of Ray Rice, Ray Lewis obstructing justice in a murder investigation, or Ryan Mallett being a bad quarterback.
