Colin Kaepernick to stand for national anthem upon NFL return

NFL players not wrong for protesting | Letter

Colin Kaepernick, the former 49ers quarterback who started the protest of kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games, told CBS he'll stand during the anthem if given a chance to play in the NFL again.

Prior reports have indicated that Kaepernick will stand for the anthem in 2017, but circumstances have changed significantly since then.

Kaepernick began his silent protest of kneeling during the anthem when he was playing in the 2016 preseason for the San Francisco 49ers. He also said proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity.

After La Canfora backed off his earlier report, Kaepernick tweeted: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", attributing the quote to Winston Churchill even though some scholars have said the quote was not said by the former British prime minister. Kaepernick also tweeted a string of other tweets criticizing the report.

"Wanted to clarify one thing regarding @Kaepernick7".

He first agreed to stand during the anthem back in March, ESPN reported at the time. He's planning on standing for the anthem if given the opportunity, "La Confora said of his talks with Kaepernick". When, by summer, the former 49er was still jobless, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell explained it had nothing to do with his refusal to stand for the national anthem. "I relayed what had been reported about him standing in the future..." La Canfora said Sunday on "The NFL Today" that he met with Kaepernick on Saturday and the 28-year-old told him he's been working out in New Jersey hoping another NFL team will sign him.

"It did spark conversation, which I think is a part of what Colin Kaepernick meant to do", Goodell said in June.

Kaepernick said his agent is talking to all 32 teams, and he's hopeful a team will give him an opportunity for a tryout.
