Colin Kaepernick, who two months ago asserted that fans’ faith in him was not misplaced, reacted Thursday to the completion of the investigation in Miami in which it was determined there was no evidence of a crime.

The 49ers quarterback wrote on Twitter:

“As I said from day one, I would never do the things that were made up about me. I'm glad this issue is resolved. It's time for football.

The State Attorney’s Office concluded there was no evidence of a crime involving Kaepernick, 49ers receiver Quinton Patton or Seattle receiver Ricardo Lockette. The three men stayed together in a high-rise Miami apartment while working out together at the beginning of the offseason.

A woman told investigators that she might have been the victim of a sexual assault after being drugged. Results from the rape kit and toxicology reports suggested no evidence of a crime, the State Attorney’s Office concluded.

“The complainant’s allegations in this matter have been thoroughly investigated. However, there is no evidence to indicate that she was the victim of any crime,” the closeout memo stated.
