According to the report, Kaepernick said he is looking for an opportunity to play and just wants to be judged as a football player.
"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations", La Canfora tweeted Sunday afternoon.
An NFL reporter is now taking back a statement he made live on TV Sunday morning that former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not planning to continue kneeling in protest during the national anthem if he is given a chance to play in the league again.
"He's not planning on kneeling".
Kaepernick's alleged stance came as a surprise to many, as new spread of his reported decision.
According to La Canfora, the quarterback is practicing every morning in New Jersey, while helping children in NY in the afternoons.
Some teams, including the Denver Broncos, have announced that they will be requiring players to stand for the national anthem going forward, while others have chosen to allow their players to express their political opinions on the field. Alas, no teams signed Kaepernick during the offseason, and Schefter's reporting was not put to the test.
"Wanted to clarify one thing regarding @Kaepernick7".
So, for those keeping score at home, Kaepernick the anthem kneeler is a traitorous, ungrateful millionaire, whereas a standing Kaepernick would be an entitled and greedy phony. Per La Canfora, he was repeating earlier reports, likely from March when ESPN reported the QB had told others that he'd stand as felt his message on social inequality had already been affirmed. I didn't ask him if he would sit or stand.
Kaepernick, who kneeled during the National Anthem while quarterback for the 49ers previous year to protest racial injustice and police brutality, spoke with CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Saturday about his future as he remains unsigned by a team.
