Former Maryland tight end Vernon Davis, who spent five years playing alongside quarterback Colin Kaepernick on the San Francisco 49ers, said Kaepernick was a "great teammate."
"My tenure with Kaepernick was nothing but amazing," Davis said on Glenn Clark Radio Aug. 9. "He was a leader while I was playing with him. He was a great guy off the field, and he worked extremely hard. He's probably the hardest-working man I've ever seen in my life. He does it day-in and day-out, and he's always been a standup guy. And I'm sure he's the same way."
With Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco sidelined in training camp with a back injury and backup Ryan Mallett yet to impress in camp, Kaepernick, a free agent, was seen as a potential solution for the team. However, there has been no movement regarding the Ravens signing Kaepernick, who drew much criticism for kneeling during the national anthem last season.
