Three Non-Football Reasons Why Baltimore Would Be The Best City For Colin Kaepernick

Five years after his Super Bowl loss to Joe Flacco and the Ravens, Colin Kaepernick is still better than at least a dozen QBs who already have jobs; guys so awful that nobody would’ve paid attention if they were on the sidelines smoking weed during the national anthem.

Why I’m Willing to Represent the Entire Black Community to the Not Black Community
