CBS reporter: I didn't talk to Kaepernick about kneeling

Kaepernick's Close Friend Just Exposed How NFL Owners Are Threatening Players to Get Them to Stand

Colin Kaepernick to stand for national anthem upon NFL return

Sunday's news comes on the same day Vice President Mike Pence walked out of an NFL game in Indianapolis because members of Kaepernick's former team took a knee during the national anthem.

Kaepernick's girlfriend, Nessa Diab, posted her own message, which read: "The reports that Colin will stand for the anthem are completely false".

"He's not planning on kneeling".

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.

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 also claimed that the quarteback will stop kneeling during the anthem in his bid to fully focus on football.

"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations", Mr La Canfora said in one tweet.

A spokesperson for CBS sports referred CNNMoney to those tweets.

However, La Canfora later noted that he did not discuss the possibility of standing during the anthem during his conversation with the quarterback.

Let's be clear here: no team is obligated to give Kaepernick a job, or even a tryout.

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

Once a quarterback that led the 49ers to an NFC title and a Super Bowl XLVII berth, Kaepernick was benched in 2016 for Blaine Gabbert after accruing a 1-10 record and 55.2 QBR under center. Kaepernick also tweeted a string of other tweets criticizing the report. His free agency has sparked questions about whether it's connected to his decision to kneel during the anthem last season. He told the media he was protesting against the treatment of blacks in the United States.
