MIAMI — San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players will not face charges in an incident involving a woman at a downtown hotel, prosecutors announced Thursday.

A memo released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s Office said there was insufficient evidence that any crime was committed in the hotel room April 1. Tests indicated the woman was not sexually assaulted and other evidence backed up the players’ contention that nothing happened.

In fact, the memo by assistant state attorney Laura Adams described the woman as incoherent when police and fire-rescue officers responded to 911 calls to the room at the Viceroy Hotel. She had to be sedated in order to be taken to the hospital, where she was temporarily involuntarily committed for her own safety, the memo said.

The other players in the room were 49ers receiver Quinton Patton and Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette.

Notes

• The Pittsburgh Steelers signed center Maurkice Pouncey to a five-year extension that will keep the three-time Pro Bowler as the anchor of the offensive line for the rest of the decade. The new deal averages $8.8 million per season, making Pouncey the highest-paid center in the NFL.

• Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine said Brian Hoyer is “securely ahead” of Johnny Manziel in the competition to be Cleveland’s starting quarterback this season. However, Pettine said Hoyer’s lead isn’t “insurmountable.”

• Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew is being sued in Florida, accused of punching a bouncer at a St. Augustine restaurant. An attorney for Jones-Drew said no charges were filed in the incident.
