Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is attempting an NFL comeback, but whether he would sit or stand for the national anthem is still not confirmed. 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". Moreover, he has said all proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity.
"He's not planning on kneeling".
But La Canfora later said he and Kaepernick didn't talk about kneeling during the anthem, even though that answer sounded as if they did.

As per terms and reference, the committee was assigned to conduct administrative, academic and research audit of the universities. He added that both universities are traditional and should remain in that context.
After La Canfora backed off his earlier report, Kaepernick tweeted: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on", attributing the quote to Winston Churchill even though some scholars have said the quote was not said by the former British prime minister.
Kaepernick, making use of a quote that may or may not have originally been coined by Winston Churchill, said: "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on". "I didn't ask him if he would sit or stand".
Kaepernick spoke with CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora for an off-camera interview and reportedly said he will go anywhere to work out for an National Football League team and is fine if that workout is kept private. La Canfora's original story was referenced by a few outlets, including the Associated Press (AP), who later issued a correction. He told the media he was protesting against the treatment of blacks in the United States.
The president told the crowd at the rally on September 22 that teams should fire players who kneel during the anthem.
