Speaking at a prayer breakfast in California, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said the Miami incident has had an effect on him.

“It’s been put out that I did something wrong,” Kaepernick said, via the Modesto Bee. “Even though it’s a bad circumstance, a bad situation, I feel like ultimately I’ve been blessed because it’s changed my way of thinking. It’s made me stronger. It’s made me look at things differently.”

Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockett were linked to a "suspicious incident" in Miami, according to police. None were charged with a crime involving the 25-year-old woman and no criminal activity was alleged in a police incident report.

Kaepernick wasn't there when they repsonded to a 911 call allegeldy made by Lockette after the woman reportedly refused to leave.

“Even this morning, this is a blessing,” Kaepernick said. “It makes me very happy to know that people are staying behind me the way they have.”
