Kaepernick Willing to Stand

Former SanFransico 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has told CBS that he would stand during the national anthem if given a chance to play football in the NFL again.

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

Kaepernick originally kneeled during the national anthem last season to bring more attention to the killings of black men by police officers and other social injustices but faced extreme pushback by many viewers and the President of the United States.

Kaepernick said his agent is talking to all 32 teams, and he’s hopeful a team will give him an opportunity for a tryout.

Kaepernick said if he is signed, he doesn’t plan to kneel during the anthem. He also said proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity.

Dual Backlash

Social media went on a frenzy as reports came that Kaepernick would ultimately be willing to stand during the anthem. Many attacked Kaepernick for his lack of real principles and his willingness to so quickly give up his cause.
