Most are calling for former NFL baller [Baltimore Raven] Ray Lewis to take SEVERAL seats, after he blames Colin Kaepernicks girlfriend/media personality Nessa Diab for him NOT getting signed to the Ravens.
It’s no secret that many teams have stood clear of quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he took a stance last year by “kneeing” during the National Anthem as a protest of social injustice.
But according to Ray Lewis, the Baltimore Ravens were days away from signing Colin when his girlfriend tweeted something which ruined it all!
Via an exclusive interview, Lewis states:
“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. His girl goes out and put this racist gesture and doesn’t know that we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed. Steve Bisciotti has said himself, “How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'”
Ray is referring to the August 2nd tweet by Nessa which compared him hugging owner Steve Bisciotti to a photo of Samuel L. Jackson hugging his master in the movie ‘Django Unchained.’
Nessa has yet to respond publicly, only retweeting words of support and encouragement from fans.
