Colin Kaepernick attempting NFL comeback, says he would stand during national anthem


But all of this began more than a year ago when Kaepernick vowed that he would sit out the national anthem until the American flag "represents what it's supposed to represent".

It's beyond unbelievable to think that La Canfora wouldn't have addressed the anthem issue with Kaepernick during their discussions.

While the work Kaepernick does in the community is still very important to him, La Canfora said any talk about football not being important to the quarterback is nonsense.

With AP Photos.Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has told CBS that he would stand during the national anthem if given a chance to play football in the NFL again.

The Sporting News had previously reported, "An interesting report about Colin Kaepernick from CBS NFL insider Jason La Canfora on Sunday's "The NFL Today": Kaepernick will stand for the national anthem if an NFL team signs him this season".

Oh, and he also tossed out a little tidbit that Kaepernick will stand for the national anthem. Later on Twitter, La Canfora doubled down on his reports that Kaepernick is working hard to return to the NFL.

Kaepernick also told La Confora that he would also donate his proceeds of jersey sales if given a roster spot.

The bottom line is that despite not playing in the NFL this season, Kaepernick's protests have influenced a number of players and teams as the movement amplified after President Donald Trump blasted those in the league who took a knee.

"Standing for Anthem wasn't something that I spoke to Colin about Saturday".

This is not the first time Kaepernick has said he'll stand if he can play football again.

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