Contract Talks Between Kap & 49ers on Hold After Miami Incident
In light of last week’s “incident” in Miami involving Colin Kaepernick and two others, the 49ers and Kaepernick’s representatives have tabled any contract talks until police conclude their investigation, according to NFL.com.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” that the 49ers have tabled negotiations while police investigate an incident earlier this month at a Miami hotel.
The Miami Police Department confirmed last week that Kaepernick, Niners wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette were named as persons involved in an incident report filed April 4. A public information officer said last Thursday that the investigation was in “the early stages.”
Kaepernick was looking for a long term deal upwards of $18 million, something that the Niners aren’t quite ready to give to their young quarterback. Both sides want to get things worked out before the 2014 season, but the Miami investigation have thrown a wrench in those plans.
