Should Ravens sign Griffin or Kaepernick?

The Baltimore Ravens apparently are thinking about adding a former starting quarterback to bolster a depth chart that consists of an injured starter, a backup who plays that way, a fungible third-stringer with a pair of first names, and a no-name No. 4 option from a no-name team in a no-name league.

Owner Steve Bisciotti acknowledged on Sunday that his team is considering both Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III.

So which one should they sign? Given that the Ravens are crowd sourcing whether to add Kaepernick, it makes sense for the PFT Live question of the day to focus on that either/or proposition.

The show is on NBCSN at 7:00 a.m. ET. It’s currently on NBC Sports Radio.

  1. I haven’t seen one single article where they’ve stated they are considering Kaepernick. I’ve seen articles about them passing on Kaepernick because of his crowd appeal, you know, the people that buy tickets, food, drinks, memorabilia? You remember them, the people that make it possible for a team to survive financially in the city they play in? If I walk into McDonald’s and the counter guy gives me crap, I don’t go back in there. And when they fire him, I don’t think it’s racism or censorship when Burger King doesn’t hire him.

  2. Flip a coin really. Neither player is going to excell in the Ravens offense as currently constructed. They both need at least some read option in an offense to be successful. I never thought these two would fall so far from where they were 5 years ago. It’s still shocking to me.

  3. Neither, both aren’t good. They’d be better off getting someone younger than 30 to develop. Those two have a very similar game and it doesn’t work in the pros, just look at their body work. Each had 1 good season, that’s it.

  4. I’d love to see either get a starting job. Then we can end this debate about how good they are or if they are being kept out for, as some claim, racial reasons.

    Each put up a good season. Many before them have done so as well. Many of those were out of the league shortly thereafter.

  5. Neither. I don’t think either player helps the team…on or off the field. Both have some baggage and aren’t worth the headache.

  6. Neither. Florio, I know you are OK with teams having two different style QBs. Most of us are not. 16 TDs to 4 INTs is not enough to switch my entire scheme to Read Option.

  7. Feel free to sign Kaepernick, it’s the owner’s right. Just don’t turn around and tell your fan base and say “I love America and support the police”.

  8. “I love America and support the police”? These have to go together? If anything an American custom is to question authority not bow down to it under meaningless words like patriotism etc. One day not far away the police state will be here and Bubbah will be wondering how it happened.

  9. I’m fine with bringing in another QB in light of Joe’s injury, but shouldn’t it be a prototypical pocket QB? Colin has his upsides, more than RG3, but neither are pocket QBs. I’d take Colin over RG3 though.

  10. I love America and support the police”? These have to go together? If anything an American custom is to question authority not bow down to it under meaningless words like patriotism etc. One day not far away the police state will be here and Bubbah will be wondering how it happened…pal, you couldn’t pay me enough to be a policeman in today’s climate…
