Reports about the Denver Broncos roster build up this offseason is taking some attention on headlines nowadays. Though there is still no significant acquisition they have done in their lineup as of this time, latest news is spreading that they are thinking of adding free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick next season.
The Denver Broncos had a disappointing performance last season. They failed to defend the title they've won two seasons ago and worst they weren't able to enter the playoffs. Many believed that the departure of Peyton Manning hurt their campaign last season. In four seasons with the Broncos, Manning brought the team to four consecutive playoffs and two Super Bowl appearances.
In his last season with the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning helps the team reclaim the Super Bowl after sixteen years. After winning the title, Manning decides to retire and his absences were felt last season as Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch unable to stabilize the Broncos offense. And now, recent reports are saying that the Broncos are evaluating Colin Kaepernick as an ideal option for the QB spot.
According to The Denver Post, Denver Broncos new head coach Vance Joseph is said to be considering Colin Kaepernick for next season. Joseph also said that he has "no problem" with players who are taking political and social stands and defend those players who want to voice their personal concern. He is also not surprised that Kaepernick is still unsigned but believed that Colin will be evaluated soon as a quarterback and not on his political views.
It can be recalled that the Denver Broncos tried to trade for Colin Kaepernick last year but the quarterback declined to a pay cut ending a supposed deal with the San Francisco 49ers. Now that Kaepernick is a free agent, will the Broncos revisit their interest on him?
In a recent interview with Denver Broncos executive vice president of football operations and general manager John Elway, he said that the team would probably look for someone who's a "better fit for their offense." Elway also stated that "things have changed" in their offense since they tried to acquire Colin Kaepernick a year ago.
Will the Denver Broncos stop chasing Colin Kaepernick after John Elway's statement? Or will they take a second look on him?
