Simply save it to signature.jpg on your local machine and try again.

Including links to hosted images will result in Outlook malformed signature and Outlook showing the "download external images" warning. Even increasing the spam score in some cases.

Anyway, I just tested this with image hosted on google drive and it seems to work fine in Outlook 2016. Make sure you are using a link that actually exposes the image directly, like described for example here: http://blog.interlockit.com/2014/02/embed-image-in-your-google-apps.html
