La Canfora tweeted later that he does not know what Kaepernick would do during the anthem.

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.

Colin Kaepernick is so desperate to get back into the NFL that he's reminding reporters that he'll even stand for the national anthem if it means signing with a team again. "He's planning on standing for the anthem- if given the opportunity".

People beyond the designated Bali evacuation zone are also retreating, including many tourists, according to CNN . Mount Agung is among the 129 active volcanoes in Indonesia , a vast archipelagic nation with 17,500 islands.


Though it's unclear from the tweet, the AP is likely citing CBS' Jason La Canfora, who, in his Sunday appearance on NFL Today, said that Kaepernick told him he would stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner". "He's going to donate all his jersey sales".

La Canfora said his "primary takeaway" was that Kaepernick's sole focus is on being a quarterback. Later on Twitter, La Canfora doubled down on his reports that Kaepernick is working hard to return to the NFL.

The bottom line is that despite not playing in the NFL this season, Kaepernick's protests have influenced a number of players and teams as the movement amplified after President Donald Trump blasted those in the league who took a knee. He understands that there's controversy and things that come with him. When, by summer, the former 49er was still jobless, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell explained it had nothing to do with his refusal to stand for the national anthem. According to a report by Jason La Canfora, Kaepernick has been living in NY and working out privately in New Jersey with the hope of signing with a team this season. "Colin and I didn't discuss".
