Broncos have inquired about acquiring Colin Kaepernick

Mar 9, 2016 at 2:12 PM--


With Brock Osweiler headed to the Houston Texans on a 4-year, $72 million deal and Peyton Manning having retired, the Denver Broncos are left without a starting quarterback. According to Benjamin Allbright, the Broncos have inquired about possibility of acquiring QB Colin Kaepernick from the San Francisco 49ers.


Kaepernick was said to be the Broncos' backup plan should the team lose Osweiler. Another quarterback that may be in play for them is Robert Griffin III.

In November, Kaepernick was benched for QB Blaine Gabbert. He was then placed on injured reserve when a shoulder injury came into light. Kaepernick is recovering from multiple surgeries. While none are expected to be long-term issues, he has had surgeries on his left shoulder, thumb, and knee since being placed on injured reserve.

Kaepernick is not far from Denver. He is currently recovering from his surgeries at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado.

The Seahawks then took control in the second half, building a 28-13 lead before holding on late to come out of Levi's Stadium with a win. The loss was the second consecutive home defeat for the 49ers, who now sit at 2-2 on the season after a last-second loss to the Green Bay Packers last

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been
