CBS reporter backtracks claim that Colin Kaepernick would stand for national anthem

NFL's hypocrisy in 'taking a knee'

Once a quarterback that led the 49ers to an NFC title and a Super Bowl XLVII berth, Kaepernick was benched in 2016 for Blaine Gabbert after accruing a 1-10 record and 55.2 QBR under center.

NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick on Sunday appeared to dispute a report that he would stand during the national anthem if he was signed to an NFL team.

Kaepernick, who kneeled during the National Anthem while quarterback for the 49ers past year to protest racial injustice and police brutality, spoke with CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora on Saturday about his future as he remains unsigned by a team. "I didn't ask him if he would sit or stand". He's going to donate all his jersey sales and he's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, who wrote the offending article, came forward on social media to say that his words were misconstrued.

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


La Canfora, who interviewed Kaepernick Saturday, said in a series of five tweets that he never spoke to him about whether he would kneel during the national anthem if picked up by an NFL team. In March, sources claimed Kaepernick would be willing to stop kneeling for the upcoming football season. La Canfora summarized their conversation but the segment did not air any comments directly made by the player.

For his part, Kaepernick tweeted a quote from Winston Churchill, "A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its trousers on".

On Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a 49ers-Indianapolis Colts game after players took part in the protest.

Kaepernick said at the time that he was protesting the treatment of black Americans, particularly by the police.
