It's all about the money.
From ESPN: QuarterbackColin Kaepernickwill stand during the national anthem next season, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
Kaepernick no longer wants his method of protest to detract from the positive change he believes has been created, sources told ESPN. He also said the amount of national discussion on social inequality -- as well as support from other athletes nationwide, including NFL and NBA players -- affirmed the message he was trying to deliver.
As a means of protest, he began sitting during the national anthem in the 2016 preseason before taking a knee for the final preseason contest and 16 regular-season games.
Kaepernick will opt out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers this week and become a free agent next week, sources told ESPN.
Kaepernick's stance has nothing to do with anything except he is a free agent and teams don't want troublemakers/attention seekers on their team because of the distractions.
Plus Kaepernick is not an Aaron Rogers so he will have to have some skills to play on an NFL team. Considering the 49ers went 2-14 for the 2016 season, he may find it difficult to find a job in the NFL, Canadian Football League or a Pee Wee football team.
