Kaepernick Says He'll Stand For The Anthem If A Team Signs Him

Kaepernick Says He'll Stand For The Anthem If A Team Signs Him

However, in his recounting of that conversation he had with Kaepernick on CBS' Inside the NFL on Sunday, La Canfora said Kaep would not kneel during the National Anthem if given the opportunity to return to the NFL.

Over 100 players then knelt in Week 3 following comments from President Donald Trump.

According to the Associated Press, which cited CBS, the unsigned quarterback will stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner" if he plays for the National Football League again.

CBS sports reporter Jason La Confora explained on "NFL Today" that while talking with Kaepernick, the football player said he would be willing to stand if a team signed him to its roster.

Jason La Canfora of CBS says that he spent a "few hours" with Kaepernick on Saturday night. But even if they didn't, perhaps La Canfora was just repeating the story from ESPN's Adam Schefter in March. The protests continued into the following week, but were smaller in scale.

While the NFL's anthem protests have picked up steam in recent weeks, Colin Kaepernick has remained quiet and out of public sight. "When I was asked about his whether or not he would sit or stand for anthem ..." The protests spread this season after the former San Francisco 49ers starter opted out of his contract and was unable to sign on with another team. "And he's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity". "I don't think that's going to affect people from saying, 'I'm going to do what's in the best interest of my football team and give my team the best chance to win, ' because that's what every team wants to do".

While Kaepernick doesn't explicitly say that he's referring to La Canfora's report, the odds that he's not referring to La Canfora are astronomically high.
