Colin Kaepernick on resolution of Miami incident: ‘It’s time to play football’
With the announcement on Thursday that Florida officials will not charge Colin Kaepernick, along with San Francisco 49ers receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette — with any crimes regarding an alleged sexual assault incident at a Miami hotel in April, the Niners quarterback said he’s finally ready to move on and focus on something far more enjoyable and much less stressful: Football.
Kaepernick took to Twitter on Thursday — as he did shortly after the accusations surfaced — to again proclaim that he maintained his innocence from Day 1 and is relieved that he now is able to move on from the sordid saga.
“As I said from day one, I would never do the things that were made up about me,” he wrote. “I’m glad this issue is resolved. It’s time for football.”
And a good time for football it is for the signal-caller, given he is fresh off signing a big-time, big-money mega-deal with the team, meaning there are little to no distractions standing in the way of preparing for the upcoming season.
And that’s gotta feel alright. Better than alright, even. Like so good it would make a guy want to flex and kiss his biceps, even.
