Former super star football player, Ray Lewis said that the Ravens were trying to sign Kaepernick for the team, but team owner Steve Bisciotti changed his mind after Kaepernick’s BLM girlfriend made racist post. She posted a picture of Lewis and Bisciotti in almost the same pose as Leonardo DeCaprio and Samuel Jackson in “Django Unchained” . Jackson plays a loyal slave and Nessa Diab, Kaepernick’s girlfriend, made the comparison of Lewis being the loyal slave.

Lewis said that the Ravens were close to signing Kaepernick:
“We were going to close the deal to sign him. 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.”
Here is a transcript of Ray Lewis being interviewed by Judy Battista:
Judy Battista – “I’m startled that he has not been signed. I’ve been told ever since I’ve started covering the NFL that talent wins out. We’ve seen teams take chances on a lot of unsavory characters. The fact that this is what has tipped over and they can’t come to grips with signing a guy who has kneeled for the national anthem but you’ve sign guys that have enormous legal issues—and they’ve been embraced by teams and they’ve been embraced by fans—I find that curious.”
Ray Lewis – “When me and Steve Bisciotti were talking, this is what we were talking about, Judy. We were talking about giving this kid an opportunity to get back in the National Football League. Look, this is what I wanted to share with people. I have been fighting for this kid behind the table like nobody has… I’ve never been against Colin Kaepernick. But I am against the way he’s done it.“
Then, his girl [Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend] 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. Steve Bisciotti has said it himself, ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?’…
“When they (Ravens) called me, it was to say, ‘Yes’ or ‘No.’ … We were going to close the deal to sign him… Steve Bisciotti said, ‘I want to hear Colin Kaeperkick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.’… And it never happens because that picture comes up the next day. “
Judy Battista – “So, if not for that… tweet, you think he would be a Baltimore Raven”
Ray Lewis – “Then he’s flying him to Baltimore. I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in.“
Nice girlfriend, Kaepernick. Looks like you will sitting at home with Diab watching the game instead of playing it.
