Ray Lewis Blames Colin Kaepernick’s Girlfriend
Ray Lewis is pointing the finger at Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend. In a new interview, Lewis says that Baltimore Ravens chose not to sign Kaepernick after the quarterback’s girlfriend posted a “racist” tweet featuring the former All-Pro linebacker and owner Steve Bisciotti. The former NFL’er explained,
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.
On Aug. 2nd Colin’s girlfriend radio personality Nessa Diab shared a tweet, comparing a picture of Lewis hugging Bisciotti to a scene from “Django Unchained”. [FYI: In the movie, Samuel L. Jackson is a loyal house slave held Leonardo DiCaprio’s cruel plantation owner]. Lewis says,
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. Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: ‘How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?’
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.
Kaepernick drew national attention last season when he knelt during the national anthem before games as a protest of social injustice.
