Kaepernick says he'll stand during national anthem

CBS Sports also reports Kaepernick said that if he were to join an NFL team this season, he would stand for the national anthem, although his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, denies he made such a claim.

According to a report by Jason La Canfora on Sunday, Kaepernick has been living in NY and working out privately in New Jersey with the hope of signing with a team this season.

Upon further reflection, Jason La Canfora clarifies that Colin didn't explicitly say he would stand for the anthem - that's just what he gathered from their conversation. Kaepernick does on-field work and throws hundreds of passes for several hours a day at an undisclosed location in New Jersey. He's going to donate all his jersey sales and he's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity.

Protesting the treatment of people of color by the police, Kaepernick began kneeling for the national anthem last season, a display that was met with both support and vitriol from the NFL community.

Earlier this week, Tennessee Titans tried out numerous veteran quarterbacks as they look for a short-term replacement for the injured Marcus Mariota. Pence acknowledged that right in a statement but contested that it wasn't too much to ask for them to stand to respect the country and the flag.
