With the news came support and concerns from fans, which owner Steve Bisciotti addressed at a fan forum Sunday prior to their first open stadium practice.
"I care about the fan base, but I have to absorb the opinions of the players that have been there. Quantify hurting the brand. I know we're going to upset some people and I know that we're going to make people happy that we stood up for somebody that has the right to do what he did. We do want to win games and I'm not sure right now that he is going to help us do that. We're monitoring Joe, we've talked to Joe about it. We're monitoring Mallett. We're keeping our door open."

But, time is ticking and it's leaving fans wondering, what is taking so long?
Steve Bisciotti is the one resisting bringing him on board, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini.
Ravens HC John Harbaugh & GM Ozzie Newsome support signing Colin Kaepernick, but have met resistance from owner Steve Bisciotti per sources— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) August 2, 2017
Also to note this is not the first time an NFL team has wanted to add Kaepernick to its roster, but the move was blocked by the team's owner— Dianna Russini (@diannaESPN) August 2, 2017
But the Ravens were quick to dismiss the report, stating that Bisciotti was not blocking the team from potentially signing Kaepernick.
“We are going through a process, and we have not made a decision," the team said in an offical statement on Wednesday. "Steve Bisciotti has not told us we cannot sign Colin Kaepernick, nor has he blocked the move. Whoever is making those claims is wrong.”
The move would make sense for one reason. John Harbaugh has had a closer relationship with Kaepernick than most.John's brother Jim was Kaepernick's head coach in San Francisco from 2011-2014, in addition to the Ravens defeating them in Super Bowl XLVII.
As of Wednesday morning's post-practice press conference, Harbaugh had no update on the matter.
