Colin Kaepernick details desire to play, workout regimen

Colin Kaepernick details desire to play, workout regimen Colin Kaepernick details desire to play, workout regimen

The 29-year-old kneeled during the national anthem last season in hopes to bring more attention and awareness to the killings of African-Americans by police officers and protest racial inequality.

La Canfora said his "primary takeaway" was that Kaepernick's sole focus is on being a quarterback.

Over the weekend, a CBS journalist who had interviewed Kaepernick, said the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, who now has no team, would end his protest and stand for the playing of the anthem if he was picked up by another outfit. According to La Canfora, Kaepernick does not plan on kneeling for the anthem this season, as was reported early in the offseason by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

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

On Sunday morning, NFL reporter Jason La Canfora appeared on CBS' NFL Today to discuss his recent off-camera interview with Colin Kaepernick. "He's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity".

It turns out that La Canfora had never spoken to Kaepernick directly about his thoughts on standing or kneeling during the anthem. "I stand with President Trump, I stand with our soldiers, and I will always stand for our Flag and our National Anthem", Pence said on Twitter. In March, sources claimed Kaepernick would be willing to stop kneeling for the upcoming football season. The AP issued a correction after La Canfora tweeted about the segment. All Kaepernick needs to do to make these folks happy is to stop existing, though even that might not be enough.

"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", he tweeted.

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a 49ers-Indianapolis Colts game after players took part in the protest. He told the media he was protesting against the treatment of blacks in the United States.
