Colin Kaepernick plans to stand during the national anthem next season.

Kaepernick no longer wants his method of protest to detract from the positive change that he believes has been created.

Kaepernick is a free agent this offseason.

The Colin Kaepernick Foundation pledged to give $1 million to community organizations helping underprivileged people, which the San Francisco 49ers matched with another $1 million in donations.
