Baltimore Ravens social media knocks Colin Kaepernick contract


I'm not going to claim to be an expert on social media, but neither is whoever runs the Baltimore Ravens Twitter account.

Since Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco signed a 6-year, $120.6 million contract that made him the NFL's highest paid player at the time, he's been regarded as one of the NFL's most overrated and overpaid players.

Whoever the Ravens Twitter account felt the need to point out how Colin Kaeprenick's new contract apparently makes him the most overpaid QB now:

For comparison, in 2013, Kaepernick started all 16 regular season games, setting career highs in completions (243), passing yards (3,197) and passing touchdowns (21), while also recording 92 rushing attempts for 542 yards and four touchdowns.

As for Flacco, he's coming off a season to forget. He completed just 59%  of his passes and threw just 19 touchdowns, both of which were the second-lowest marks of his six-year NFL career. He also threw a career-high 22 interceptions.

Kaeprnick also should have more good years left, as her turns 27 this November, while Flacco will turn 30 in January.
