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 San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with the winner facing off against either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This is a stage familiar for the 49ers, as they've made the NFC Championship Game in three of the past four seasons now, losing to the Los Angeles Rams last season, while going to the Super Bowl in 2019 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. However, despite seeing consistent success, the 49ers haven't accomplished their No. 1 goal: winning a Super Bowl, which has left a chip on their shoulder as they strive to hit that goal this season. When asked about the topic, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk agreed with the sentiment about having a chip



How the 49ers have advanced their offense without changing their core identity

The San Francisco 49ers have developed into an elite-tier offense over the past seven weeks, averaging over 34 points a game with quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm, while ranking second in DVOA since they acquired Christian McCaffrey. However, they've run a similar offense since the arrival of head coach Kyle Shanahan, which bodes the question of how the 49ers have remained at their elite levels on that side of the ball, despite the amount of game film being produced on their tendencies. The answer: advancing their offense by adding a layer of intricacy, even though the idea behind plays is what San Francisco has run for the past few years. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey spoke on the topic to reporters this week, highlighting the difference between
