The chances of an National Football League team signing Colin Kaepernick seem like they are decreasing by the day, but the free agent quarterback is not letting that deter him from keeping himself prepared in the event that the call comes.

That's just for starters.
Oddly, Kaepernick hardly reacted at all when Schefter's report came out.
Here's the video of the reporter talking about the claim before he clarified it.
According to La Canfora, the quarterback is practicing every morning in New Jersey, while helping children in NY in the afternoons.
Kaepernick said if he is signed, he doesn't plan to kneel during the anthem. He's gonna donate all his jersey sales.
While it remains to be seen what Kaepernick would do during the national anthem if given the opportunity, it seems we won't know until he is officially on an NFL roster. "Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'". "When I was asked about his whether or not he would sit or stand for anthem ..." To emphasize that point, Kaepernick then retweeted the original story containing La Canfora's statement that Kaepernick would stand.
"Colin told me explicitly, 'I'll go anywhere and work out for a team". He's reportedly determined to showcase that his abilities on the field are worth whatever off-the-field attention comes with him.
"Reports about @Kaepernick7 standing for anthem had not been refuted".
"It did spark conversation, which I think is a part of what Colin Kaepernick meant to do", Goodell said in June.
"Colin would have to address any future demonstrations. Our chat primarily about his will to play".
The report originated on CBS.
Speaking on Sunday evening, CBS's Jason La Canfora confirmed that Kaepernick is desperate to return to any team that will have him.
