Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said he'll start standing for the national anthem should a football team sign him. He originally began kneeling during the Star-Spangled Banner to protest police brutality against minorities in America.

La Canfora reported the news on Sunday after talking with Kaepernick, who sparked a series of protests by National Football League players upset by police brutality and racial inequality.

Kaepernick's new stance will come as a surprise to many.

According to CBS Sports, the Titans knew that Kaepernick was open to a workout with them after quarterback Marcus Mariota went down with an injury, but he was not invited for a meeting.

He kneeled during the national anthem previous year as quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, sparking an ongoing nationwide debate that has led even Donald Trump to offer an opinion.

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.

According to La Canfora, the quarterback is practicing every morning in New Jersey, while helping children in NY in the afternoons. However, it's clear that he's apparently willing to focus on goals beyond just kneeling, if it means a return to the NFL.

La Canfora did not say why Kaepernick would stand for the national anthem.
