Colin Kaepernick tweets out statement

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick tweeted out a statement regarding the reports from TMZ and others about the Miami police investigation.

Fooch's Update: Kap's agent released a statement:

A day after the Internet blew up following TMZ's first report on Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback tweeted out a statement:

TMZ continues to insist Kap is being investigated for  "sexual assault", even though the police department has insisted that is not the case. I posted the initial TMZ report, and did use sexual assault in the headline as they did. I could have simply not posted on the topic, and waited for the police report. On the other hand, people were starting to discuss it, and I felt I needed to at least attempt to provide a space for discussion, while also trying to maintain a balanced approach.

I'll continue to update this "story" as information comes in. This will hopefully be in the past before too long, and we can just move on to the 2014 season.
