CBS clarifies statement on whether Colin Kaepernick would stand for national anthem
Oct 09, 2017, 00:26
But all of this began more than a year ago when Kaepernick vowed that he would sit out the national anthem until the American flag "represents what it's supposed to represent".
Earlier this afternoon, reporter Jason La Canfora appeared on CBS to deliver some news related to free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Colin Kaepernick said in an off-camera interview with CBS Sports that he would go anywhere for an National Football League workout, as long as it was private.
Ray Lewis said the Baltimore Ravens chose not to sign Colin Kaepernick after the quarterback's girlfriend posted a "racist" tweet featuring the former All-Pro linebacker and owner Steve Bisciotti. "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".
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".
Kaepernick also told La Confora that he would also donate his proceeds of jersey sales if given a roster spot.
Whatever Canforma. We're not sure how managed to conflate whatever Kaepernick said or didn't say into him saying he would stand for the anthem if he got another QB job in the NFL.
La Canfora said his "primary takeaway" was that Kaepernick's sole focus is on being a quarterback. Kaepernick has not directly confirmed those reports.
That recent wave of protests was triggered by Trump's suggestion that team owners fire football players for exercising their constitutional right to protest. It was not described as an interview, as La Canfora paraphrased Kaepernick's comments. "Colin and I didn't discuss".
