In a video posted to his Twitter account Tuesday, Lewis suggested that Kaepernick become quiet about his social activism.

“The football field is our sanctuary,” Lewis said in a video posted on his Twitter account Tuesday. “If you do nothing else, young man, get back on the football field and let your play speak for itself. And what you do off the field, don’t let too many people know because they are going to judge you anyway, no matter what you do, no matter if it’s good or bad.”
Kaepernick has become a lightening rod ever since he knelt during the national anthem as his way to protest social injustice. Baltimore is still thinking over whether to sign Kaepernick, and owner Steve Bisciotti said Sunday that he has consulted Lewis in the decision-making process.
