The Ravens have been getting a slew of backlash from fans who don't want him signed to the franchise, with some even threatening to not support the team anymore. Because of his political and social views, Kaepernick is a player who's become bigger than the game in the eyes of many.
ESPN's Dianna Russini seemed to confirm that assumption Wednesday morning, as she reported multiple owners around the league have gone out of their way to avoid signing Kaepernick. "I'll frame that this way: there are other positions we're looking at and I don't have any updates on those either".
"We are going through a process, and we have not made a decision".
Harbaugh told reporters today: "I do not have an update on Colin Kaepernick. Whoever is making these claims is wrong".
Lewis, a two-time Super Bowl champion with the Ravens, said he prays for Kaepernick and has the quarterback's name in his Bible. "I think they're all in the same category".

Over the weekend, Ravens team president Dick Cass said the team has had direct discussions with Kaepernick regarding a possible deal.
With Joe Flacco now sidelined due to a back injury, Baltimore is expected to be in search of another potential QB for insurance alongside current backup Ryan Mallett. Mallett, who hasn't exactly inspired confidence while working with the first-team offense since camp started, has just eight starts in his five seasons in the NFL. "We're trying to figure what's the right tact".
"You can't really say exactly when or when we might decide", he said.
Harbaugh's brother Jim was Kaepernick's coach in San Francisco for four years.
Lewis essentially is advising Kaepernick to keep his activism private, which is, well, an oxymoron: The whole point of "activism" is to spread your message to as many people as possible, not keep your opinions to yourself.
