Colin Kaepernick is still looking for a new team, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh says it’s “stupid” and “intellectually lazy” to assume the NFL is blackballing the former 49ers quarterback for his social justice stances.
Still, Harbaugh joined his big brother Jim in expressing wonderment as to why Kaepernick is still unemployed.
Kaepernick is “super talented,” according to Harbaugh, who also believes the quarterback will find a home.
“I absolutely think he’s going to get signed,” Harbaugh told the media Tuesday at the NFl meetings in Phoenix, “I agree with (my brother) Jim (Harbaugh). He can win games for people.”
John Harbaugh won’t go as far as to predict multiple Super Bowl titles in Kaepernick’s future, like his brother declared, but he believes he can still be a starting quarterback again.
New Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph doesn’t share the Harbaugh’s sense of surprise that Kaepernick is still available.
“I’m not surprised with this league,” Joseph told the Denver Post. “You got Kaepernick, you got Adrian Peterson out there — lots of veteran players who played well in the past are still on the market. That can be financial issues or just waiting until your roster shakes out to see where those guys fit. So I’m not surprised, no.”
