La Canfora said Kaepernick is working out everyday in New Jersey, throwing passes and going to the gym, La Canfora reported.

But following weeks of massive protest in the National Football League sparked by comments from President Donald Trump, Kaepernick, now a free agent, appears to have relented in his commitment to soldier on with his protests until "significant change" is made.

Jason La Canfora of CBS says that he spent a "few hours" with Kaepernick on Saturday night.

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.

While there have been opportunities for Kaepernick to catch on with teams who have run into unexpected quarterback issues, other options who at times have been less qualified have been chosen over him.

"Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, he's fired". The protests continued into the following week, but were smaller in scale.

The 29-year-old quarterback spurred national controversy last year during a preseason game for the 49ers by kneeling during "The Star-Spangled Banner" in protest of the treatment of blacks in the US. "When I was asked about his whether or not he would sit or stand for anthem ..."

Following his high-profile protests, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco team in March 2017.

"It did spark conversation, which I think is a part of what Colin Kaepernick meant to do", Goodell said in June. "Just have an evaluator look at me and see if I'm a football player'". It wasn't an interview, per se; as one source with knowledge of the situation explained it to PFT, it was a chance meeting involving Kaepernick, La Canfora, and a mutual friend.
