Odell Beckham Jr. wants to be the NFL’s highest-paid player, an admission he made in an “UNINTERRUPTED” video shown above.
“It’s (his contract) like the elephant in the room. You don’t want to talk about it, but I’ve gotten to the point in my life where there’s no need to not talk about it,” Beckham said.
If Flacco’s injury winds up being more severe than they’re estimating right now, he might get his chance. Unlike the other quarterbacks on Baltimore’s roster, Kaepernick can actually be a viable starter. Just stop yourself before you argue against that. It’s been established.
The only question at this point for a team signing Kaepernick is whether or not it’s too late in the process for him to have an impact. It’s not easy taking over an offense in August, having missed the offseason work prior to starting training camp.
Not having that time to learn the offense would certainly put him at a disadvantage, but he does have another thing going for him in Baltimore — he knows the coaching staff.
John Harbaugh is Jim’s brother, so there’s that. But the more important connection here is offensive assistant Greg Roman, who happened to be the offensive coordinator in San Francisco during Kaepernick’s first four seasons in the league, including their trip to Super Bowl XLVII when they lost to the Ravens.
And even though it’s still too early to know with any certainty how long Flacco will be on the shelf, a lot of Ravens fans are already coming around to the idea.
