  • John Elway: Broncos Offered Kaepernick a Contract, He Passed

Broncos general manager John Elway indicated Thursday that former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would not be among the veteran talent that the Broncos would consider as a potential backup option, USA Today Sports' Lindsay Jones reports.

When asked about Kaepernick, Elway dismissed the question.

"Well, you know what and I said this a while ago, Colin had his chance to be here", said Elway, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.

Elway met with Kaepernick twice in 2016 as the Broncos and San Francisco 49ers tried to work out a trade that would have sent Kaepernick to Denver. And I said in my deposition, and I don't know legally if I'm able to say this, but he had his chance to be here.

Though Keenum has never missed time due to injury, Elway doesn't want to take any chances.

Voters Trust Trump More Than Democrats on Economy and National Security
The Zogby poll also found that Republicans are gaining ground on Democrats in the congressional generic ballot. Overall, 43 percent said they approve of Trump's policies, compared to 54 percent who don't.

That makes it sound like the Broncos extended an offer to Kaepernick within the last two years.

Kaepernick ultimately chose to stay with the 49ers. Instead, Kaepernick was cut and hasn't been in the league since, and the Broncos are still trying to figure out their quarterback situation, at least in terms of who will be the backup with the addition of Case Keenum as the unquestioned starter.

Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League in which he claims team owners colluded to keep him from being signed.

He kneeled to protest the treatment of black Americans, particularly by police. Elway was one of a number of front-office executives to give a deposition in the proceedings in Kaepernick's presence.
