While there has been some speculation Kaepernick wasn't interested in returning to the football, La Canfora reported the quarterback would "be willing to work out any place, any time, for any NFL team". Kaepernick also tweeted a string of other tweets criticizing the report.
According to La Canfora, the quarterback is practicing every morning in New Jersey, while helping children in NY in the afternoons.
Now, La Canfora has abandoned his prior assertion, pointing out that he didn't talk to Kaepernick about whether he plans to stand or kneel for the anthem.
He's not planning on kneeling.
La Canfora detailed Kaepernick's recent workout regimen, which includes the QB waking up at 4 a.m.to travel from New York City to New Jersey, where he runs football drills and throws more than 100 passes a day, in addition to working out in a gym. He also said proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity.More news: Iowa State falls at home to Texas
"Wanted to clarify one thing regarding @Kaepernick7". To emphasize that point, Kaepernick then retweeted the original story containing La Canfora's statement that Kaepernick would stand. "And he's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity".
"Reports about @Kaepernick7 standing for anthem had not been refuted".
"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations".
"I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed", the quarterback said. "Our chat primarily about his will to play".
Jason La Canfora said in a series of tweets on Sunday that he was relaying previous reporting about Kaepernick and did not ask whether the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback would sit or stand during the anthem.
