Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned by an NFL team.
But a small segment of Baltimore Ravens fanbase would like to see their team sign the former 49ers quarterback.
In a show of support for the controversial Kaepernick, a group of roughly 15 people were seen taking a knee outside M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Saturday.
In photos taken by Baltimore Sun reporter Jeff Zrebiec, the the kneeling fans held signs that read "Ravens Fans for Colin Kaepernick" and "Say NO to NFL Racism. Sign Colin Kaepernick."

The Ravens' interest in Kaepernick became news on August 2. ESPN reported that owner Steve Bisciotti had blocked GM Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh from signing Kaepernick. That prompted Newsome to issue a statement shooting down the claim that Bisciotti had squashed the possible signing.
"We are going through a process, and we have not made a decision. Steve Bisciotti has not told us we cannot sign Colin Kaepernick, nor has he blocked the move. Whoever is making those claims is wrong," Newsome wrote.
