CBS reporter: I didn't talk to Kaepernick about kneeling

Share

According to a report by Jason La Canfora on Sunday, Kaepernick has been living in NY and working out privately in New Jersey with the hope of signing with a team this season. He spoke about Kaepernick living in NY and training in New Jersey in the hopes of getting signed by a team. Kaepernick was not worked out and the Titans reportedly did not have interest in him.

Shortly after that feature aired on NFL Today, Know Your Rights Camp, a youth campaign headed by Kaepernick, tweeted out a statement saying reports about the out-of-work QB's anthem posture are "completely false", and that "he has never discussed this with anyone".

Furthermore, Kaepernick tweeted a series of tweets questioning the CBS report. In his retelling of the conversation on CBS Sports on Sunday, La Canfora said Kaepernick would not kneel during the National Anthem if given the opportunity to return to the NFL. He also plans to donate the money from his jersey sales to charity.

La Canfora attempted to clarifiy the situation via his own Twitter account. According to the report, Kaepernick said he is looking for an opportunity to play and just wants to be judged as a football player. But ESPN reported in March that Kaepernick would stand during the national anthem this season, citing unnamed sources.

La Canfora did not name any report in his tweets.

So, for those keeping score at home, Kaepernick the anthem kneeler is a traitorous, ungrateful millionaire, whereas a standing Kaepernick would be an entitled and greedy phony.

Kaepernick's protest against racial prejudice ignited a national debate fanned by President Donald Trump, who said last month that NFL owners should fire any player protesting by kneeling during the anthem.

The dust-up even caught the attention of Kaepernick himself.
