NFL rumors have been swirling around Colin Kaepernick because he does not want to remain with the San Francisco 49ers, the team that benched him in favor of Blaine Gabbert. With Brock Osweiler leaving the Denver Broncos to sign with the Houston Texans, an opportunity has opened up for Kaepernick. According to Fox Sports, the Broncos want to acquire Kaepernick as a replacement for Osweiler and the retiring Peyton Manning.
The quarterback situation for the Denver Broncos last season is well documented. In fact, it was one of the most entertaining and intriguing stories in the history of the NFL. The legendary Peyton Manning came down to earth, was replaced by the upcoming Brock Osweiler and made an unlikely return to help the team win the Super Bowl. It was almost as if a fairy tale came to life on the football field.
With no viable starting quarterback in tow, the Denver Broncos have no choice but to look around the NFL to see if they can find one. That’s going to be a difficult task because there simply are not enough starter caliber passer around. The upcoming NFL Draft has some interesting choices, but none of them are guaranteed to be good on the next level. Free agency and trades might be the best option for the Broncos.
The Denver Broncos could be an appealing opportunity for Colin Kaepernick. The team just came off of a Super Bowl victory, so that means that there is enough talent sitting around to make the NFL Playoffs again next season. Some key players are leaving town, but there should be enough left in the cupboard to intrigue Kaepernick. If anything, the Broncos have more talent than the San Francisco 49ers, a team that has lost an incredible amount of stars in a short period of time.
More than anything, Colin Kaepernick wants a change of scenery. He knows that he can still leave a good legacy in the NFL if he were afforded the opportunity to start fresh elsewhere. The San Francisco 49ers are desperately trying to keep Kaepernick around, but they know that it would be best for business if they moved on as well. The Denver Broncos have no choice but to move on because both of their quarterbacks have done so. Kaepernick to the Broncos makes sense for everyone.
