Colin Kaepernick, Quinton Patton, Ricardo Lockette investigation timeline clearing up a bit

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

The investigation involving Colin Kaepernick, Quinton Patton, and Ricardo Lockette is moving along, and Miami police offered information that could mean a resolution sooner rather than later.

Friday evening, Matt Barrows posted some of the latest details surrounding the Miami police department investigation involving San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Quinton Patton, and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette. The report gives us a slightly better idea of when this whole thing will come to a close.

The current hold-up in the investigation is the police waiting for surveillance tape from the Viceroy Hotel. Earlier this week, Barrows reported Kap may not have even been in the hotel room when the events of April 1 were going down. In his latest report, Barrows states Miami police do not believe Kap was present when they responded to a pair of 9-1-1 calls. This is a bit more specific than his first report, although he did not cite a specific public statement on this. Nonetheless, it seems more and more likely that this is the case.

According to Barrows, police will release a pair of 9-1-1 tape recordings on Monday. It sounds like one involves one of Lockette's calls, and the other is from hotel security. We know about Lockette's 9-1-1 calls, but it will be interesting to see what the audio provides. It may end up being nothing, but it wouldn't surprise me if it added a little more to the players' side of things.

One other bit of news in Barrows article was that the police planned on meeting "in the next few days", with an attorney representing the three players. I suppose given that they know each other, they could all have the same lawyer for most matters. It's also possible for the purposes of wrapping this up they've gotten one person to finish it off.

In the meantime, we heard reports on Friday that contract negotiations had been tabled for the moment. As Fox Sports 1's Mike Garafolo mentioned, this seems to be mostly just out of respect for the investigative process. Once this gets finalized, it'll be back to work on trying to get a new deal done. They've got a little over three months until training camp starts, and then another six or so weeks until the start of the regular season. That gives them time to get this figured out.
