49ers QB Colin Kaepernick cleared following sexual assault investigation
Remember when 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the focus of a police investigation? Yeah, well, you can forget it now. Kaepernick and the two other players who were with him in a Miami hotel room with a woman in April, Ricardo Lockette and Quinton Patton, will not have charges brought against them by county prosecutors. The woman alleged that she was a victim of sexual assault while with the players, and a spokesman for the state attorney's office said no evidence was found to support that claim.
So, Kaepernick can move forward with actual football things. He has a ton of quality receivers surrounding him this year, and the team would be smart to utilize him more as a passer. Kaepernick is the 10th QB off of the board, according to current average draft position numbers. I think he can be a top-five fantasy quarterback.
