The Denver Broncos might consider bringing in a veteran backup quarterback at some point. If they do, it will not be Colin Kaepernick, general manager John Elway said Thursday.

The Broncos interest with the quarterback came back in 2016, before Kaepernick began protesting social injustice and racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem in his final season in San Francisco.
So not exactly what Elways made it out to be.
Back in 2016, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Broncos wanted Kaepernick to take a pay cut to facilitate a trade. Elway and Kaepernick met, but an agreement never materialized.
No reported offers have been made since, and Elway is no longer interested.
