Furthermore, Kaepernick tweeted a series of tweets questioning the CBS report.

"He's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity", La Canfora said of Kaepernick. He's gonna donate all his jersey sales.

Kaepernick told La Canfora that he hasn't spoken publicly about the kneeling controversy because he doesn't want it to be a "distraction".

While there have been opportunities for Kaepernick to catch on with teams who have run into unexpected quarterback issues, other options who at times have been less qualified have been chosen over him.

La Canfora also reports that Kaepernick said his agent has been engaged talking to all 32 teams and all teams are aware that Kaepernick is willing to go anywhere to work out for a team, in public or in private. "Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'". "He understands that there's controversy and things that come with him, but as a football player, he's hoping to be judged in that manner, and I'm convinced, I saw video of his workouts, he's putting that into effect", La Canfora said Sunday afternoon.

"I left today's [Indianapolis] Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem", Pence wrote on Twitter. "When I was asked about his whether or not he would sit or stand for anthem ..." "I relayed what had been reported about him standing in the future..." "Colin and I didn't discuss".

"While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. Our chat primarily about his will to play".

But Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Sunday morning that Kaepernick has in fact been training to make a comeback and that his representation is speaking with teams around the league.
