Kaepernick: Investigation has changed me
ESPN 591+ SHARES
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Friday said he's "changed my way of thinking" in the wake of an ongoing police investigation in Miami involving himself and two other NFL players.
Police are investigating what they have described as a "suspicious incident" at a Miami hotel involving Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quinton Patton, Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette and a 25-year-old woman on April 1.
"It's been put out that I did something wrong," Kaepernick reportedly told the audience in his hometown of Turlock, Calif., according to the Modesto Bee.
"Even though it's a bad circumstance, a bad situation, I feel like ultimately I've been blessed because it's changed my way of thinking.
Kaepernick, who is working with teammates at the 49ers' offseason conditioning program, defended himself on Twitter last month but had not addressed the situation since.
