Ravens Favored To Sign Kaepernick After Goodell Encouragement

  • Kaepernick is favored to land with the Baltimore Ravens at +200 odds.
  • Kaepernick’s odds of signing with a team before week 1 are at +300.
  • Colin Kaepernick has not appeared in the NFL since 2016.

BALTIMORE – The 2016 NFL season is also the last time that Kaepernick appeared in an NFL game.

Online sportsbooks have weighed in on the possibility of Colin Kaepernick making his return to the NFL during the 2020-21 season.

Teams that are favored to sign Colin Kaepernick include the Baltimore Ravens, who lead the way with +200 odds, the Seattle Seahawks (+250) and Houston Texans (+400).

Betting Odds On Colin Kaepernick's Next Team

  • Baltimore Ravens +200
  • Seattle Seahawks +250
  • Houston Texans +400
  • Kansas City Chiefs +500
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +750
  • Los Angeles Chargers +800
  • Minnesota Vikings +800
  • Tennessee Titans +1000
  • Philadelphia Eagles +1200

Kaepernick to the Ravens is the favorite for a couple of reasons. The first one being that the coaching staff is already familiar with Kaepernick.

Their offensive coordinator, Greg Roman was the Offensive Coordinator in San Francisco when Kaepernick was QB1 and led them to a Super Bowl appearance.

Also, their current head coach, John Harbaugh is brothers with Jim Harbaugh who coached Kaepernick in San Francisco as well.

Secondly, the team’s roster is ready to compete for a Super Bowl right now.

With Lamar Jackson playing at his MVP level, this would give Kaepernick much needed time to adjust back into the NFL lifestyle and also give him time to learn the system.

As for a team like the Jaguars or the Chargers, they have nothing to lose and it would give Kaep a chance to prove that he has been ready for his return for three years.

Will Kaep Be Returning?

Kaepernick’s current odds of returning and signing with an NFL team before Week 1 are still not favored.

At +275 odds of being on a team, the odds however are shifting in his favor. Sitting at -450 odds to not be signed, Kaep’s opening line was set at -900.

The reason behind Colin Kaepernick’s odds shift has to do with the support that NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, has shown for teams to sign him.

“Well, listen, if he wants to resume his career in the NFL, then obviously it's going to take a team to make that decision— But I welcome that, support a club making that decision and encourage them to do that— If his efforts are not on the field but continuing to work in this space, we welcome him to that table and to help us, guide us, help us make better decisions about the kinds of things that need to be done in the communities," said Goodell. "We have invited him in before, and we want to make sure that everybody's welcome at that table and trying to help us deal with some very complex, difficult issues that have been around for a long time.”

The shift in the odds should be seen as a positive as it is a sign that the NFL is starting to back the fight against police brutality.

Now that the odds shifted, bettors can now think twice before shifting away from betting on Kaepernick being on a team. Even though they shifted closer, bettors can still see a nice payout if they decide to take the risk.
