OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has drawn criticism from an unlikely source for his less-than-enthusiastic approach to lining up at wide receiver when Lamar Jackson comes in as the QB.

“My wife gave me crap the one day, told me I need to look more interested out there,” Flacco said Wednesday. “But I’m just trying to stay out of it. I’m not comfortable out there. I don’t need to get too creative.”

Flacco has said that he supports any plays that help the offense gain yards, which is a more diplomatic stance than in previous years. In 2013, Flacco ripped the use of the Wildcat offense with then-backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor, calling it a “high school offense.”

This year, defenses usually put one defender on Flacco, but the Super Bowl-winning quarterback acknowledged he isn’t doing much to trick teams.

“You can see me. I’m out there just standing,” Flacco said. “I really just try to stay out of the way of everything. That’s what I’m told to do. That’s what I’m doing.”

The last time Flacco played wide receiver on a regular basis was in middle school, when he first played football. Flacco has two career catches in the NFL, including one that went for 43 yards against Oakland in 2008, his rookie season.

Asked if there is any scenario in which he will catch a pass this season, Flacco said with a laugh, “I sure hope not.”

If defenses don’t cover Flacco, coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens will throw a pass to the 11-year veteran. Ravens players believe that could happen.

“He’s just luring defenses to sleep,” running back Alex Collins said. “He said he was afraid earlier, but he might be catching some passes if they’re not paying attention to him. That’s a good thing. Let him keep tricking them over there.”

Free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance under the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement Sunday, alleging collusion that has denied him a job with a team this season.

“Respondents NFL and NFL Team Owners have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States,” Kaepernick’s representatives wrote in the claim.

NFL spokesperson Joe Lockhart declined to comment on Kaepernick’s grievance during a Monday conference call with reporters, citing confidentiality requirements of arbitration proceedings.

Kaepernick, who knelt during the national anthem before games during the 2016 season to protest racial inequality and other social injustices, has remained a free agent since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers last March. He visited with the Seahawks during the summer and was discussed as an option for the Ravens after Joe Flacco injured his back in training camp. Both teams ultimately decided not to sign him.

According to Gabe Feldman, NFL Network legal analyst and director of the Tulane University Sports Law Program, “Kaepernick’s collusion complaint will be heard by a neutral arbitrator pursuant to the terms of the collective bargaining agreement. Kaepernick will have to prove that two or more teams conspired to keep him out of the league.”

Per Feldman, it will be difficult for Kaepernick to win a collusion case “absent a ‘smoking gun’ that provides evidence of actual collusion as opposed to speculation.”
