On Thursday after the Ravens' first day of training camp, head coach John Harbaugh broke the surprising news that he had been in contact with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wasn't ruling out bringing him on board.
Many fans have since expressed their concerns about singing the controversial quarterback, even saying they would no longer support the team.

During a fan forum Sunday at the Ravens' open stadium practice, owner Steve Bisciotti addressed the issue and said the team is proceeding with caution when it comes to the matter. "We are very sensitive to it," Bisciotti said.
"It's been discussed between Dick [Cass] and Ozzie [Newsome] and John [Harbaugh]. We've talked to a lot of our current players and a lot of our former players. I was speaking to Ray Lewis this morning. I know Ozzie had a long conversation with Ben Watson. I wouldn't divulge peoples's opinions, but I think you'd be kind of shocked at some people that are against it and some people who are for it."
"It's not racial lines, it's not existing players versus former players. I care about the fan base, but I have to absorb the opinions of the players that have been there. Colin's made some assurances I think through his intermediaries that there would be no protesting, that he would be standing for the pledge of allegiance."
Bisciotti understands that no matter the decision he makes, he won't be able to make everyone happy.
"Quantify hurting the brand. I know we're going to upset some people and I know that we're going to make people happy that we stood up for somebody that has the right to do what he did. Non-violent protesting is something that we've all embraced. I don't like the way he did it, personally, I kind of liked it a lot when he went from sitting to kneeling. I'm Catholic, we spend a lot of time kneeling."
With Joe Flacco out for at least a week with a back injury and Ryan Mallet throwing five interceptions at Friday's practice, the organization is still considering the most important factor: Is Kaepernick the backup that best fits their team?
"We do want to win games and I'm not sure right now that he is going to help us do that. We're monitoring Joe, we've talked to Joe about it. We're monitoring Mallett. We're keeping our door open. We've talked about RGIII, bringing him in for a workout."
"All I would ask is to just talk to your neighbors and your friends and your coworkers because I think you'll just get the same sense I got. It's that wow, every time I hear something negative, I hear something positive and it sometimes shocks me who it's coming from. I hope we do what is best for the team and balance that with what's best for our fans and your opinions matter to us."
Bisciotti ended his thoughts with "pray for us."
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was also in attendance and voiced his opinion on if he would like to see Kaepernick get another shot.
"Those are football decisions. Those are decisions that I don't get involved with, they are decisions that rightfully belong to those clubs. Obviously, everyone's aware of the fact of his protest last year and that's something that individual clubs will either weigh or not weigh, but I think they all want to get better and they're going to make that decision on can somebody help them win."
"I've said before, our players have a very public position in communities and I think their voices rightfully should be heard in communities. I think it's a good thing for players to speak up on issues. I think all of us have to do that responsibly and have to do that in the right way and those are decisions players will make."
"But, I think it's good for them to be out trying to make our communities better. I think our players do that. We had several players who were at the fan forum earlier tonight that I think demonstrate that everyday. The vast majority of our players do that in a way that makes me really proud."
