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.
According to La Canfora, Kaepernick has remained so quiet because he's been focusing on staying in shape, sharpening his football skills and trying not to cause any distractions that would keep him from earning another shot on the gridiron.
"He's planning on standing for the anthem, if given the opportunity", La Canfora said of Kaepernick.
Ray Lewis said the Baltimore Ravens chose not to sign Colin Kaepernick after the quarterback's girlfriend posted a "racist" tweet featuring the former All-Pro linebacker and owner Steve Bisciotti. But even if they didn't, perhaps La Canfora was just repeating the story from ESPN's Adam Schefter in March. He also said proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity.
There were also reports to surface this weekend that Kaepernick would stand for the anthem if he were to earn another shot, but those reports have since been refuted.

Harry added that based on various sources, it was found that 59,820 people, who live in areas affected by the Mt. Evacuees are now living in temporary shelters: sports centres, village halls or even with relatives or friends.
However, after reports exploded quoting the CBS account, La Canfora took to Twitter to reveal that he had not spoken to Kaepernick about the question. Kaepernick has not directly confirmed those reports.
"Colin told me explicitly, 'I'll go anywhere and work out for a team".
"I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed", the quarterback said.
But Kaepernick's greatest influence seemed to come at the start of this season even though he himself has not been signed yet to a team after President Donald Trump at a campaign-style rally in Alabama slammed National Football League players who participate in the protest.
"It did spark conversation, which I think is a part of what Colin Kaepernick meant to do", Goodell said in June.
