Small crowd protests outside stadium for Ravens to sign Kaepernick

A group of about 15 people gathered outside of the Baltimore Ravens' stadium Saturday morning, holding signs that read "Say NO to NFL Racism, Sign Colin Kaepernick," among other things.

The group, with signs credited to the Peoples Power Assembly, knelt like Kaepernick did during the national anthem last season and hoped to convey to the Ravens that they would support the franchise signing the free-agent quarterback, ESPN's Jamison Hensley reports.

"One Ravens fan walked by the small gathering of protesters outside of M&T Bank Stadium and said 'Kaepernick sucks.' A protester responded, 'He's better than (backup Ryan) Mallett," Hensley adds.

Ravens starting quarterback Joe Flacco will miss the entire preseason with a back injury. In his stead, Mallett has disappointed both in training camp and in the team's first preseason game on Thursday, when he went 9-for-18 for 58 yards.

Kaepernick has remained a free agent since opting out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers at the close of last season.

Joe Thomas pushes for own annual holiday in Cleveland
I’d like to lobby @CityofCleveland to make 7/3 an official holiday where the city government is closed, banks are closed, mandatory day off for all workers. It only make sense to roll into America’s birthday with a little pre-game holiday for all on the 3rd. Retweet if you agree
Gronk angling to play for the '69ers'
I think Rob Gronkowski just crashed my bachelor party in disguise. Not sure if he's going to retire, but said he could be playing for the "69ers" next season. I love my job. I love Gronk. #Patriots
