Broncos, Dolphins To Attend Colin Kaepernick Workout

When Colin Kaepernick works out for NFL teams on Saturday in Atlanta, the Dolphins and Broncos will be among the teams in attendance (Twitter links via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com and Mike Klis of 9News). The Cowboys and many other clubs are expected to attend the audition, which is open to all 32 clubs. 

The Dolphins’ interest in Kaepernick makes plenty of sense, given their uncertainty at the quarterback position for 2020 and beyond. It seems unlikely that anything could stop the Dolphins from selecting a quarterback high in the 2020 draft, but Kaep could be an intriguing option to consider.

The Broncos could also use a QB, though their interest in Kaepernick is puzzling, given the history between him and GM John Elway. The Broncos attempted to trade for Kaepernick in 2016, but the deal fell apart when Kaepernick declined the Broncos’ proposed pay cut. When asked about the near deal in 2018, Elway seemed to close the door the former 49ers star.

He had his chance to be here,” Elway said. He passed it.

After that, Kaepernick’s attorney Mark Geragos alleged that Elway violated the gag order issued in Kaepernick‘s collusion case with his comments.

Mr. Elway, clearly he violated the protective order that the NFL has been wielding like a club at me,” Geragos said on his podcast. “And he’s apparently suffering from some real brain trauma.”

Now, in 2019, the Broncos are at least curious enough to send a scout to watch Kaepernick.

    Elway is one of the best QBs ever but man he can’t find one for (expletive)

    Lot of ifs but if Kap brings down his asking price and if he looks good he wouldn’t be a huge step down from Dak. Kap on a cheap deal > paying Dak 30M+

      • TheTruth12

        The point being even with the baggage it’s better than paying an average QB 30M. They could put in a peewee kid at QB and be fine.

      Dak is the leader of Dallas Cowboys now. There is no way they get rid of him for the media circus Kaep brings to a franchise.

    Colin kaepernick was not a good quarterback in 2016, he has a career completion percentage of 59 and played in an offense built for him, this is a publicity stunt by the nfl, who will pick up a quarterback in week 11 of an nfl season and pay him anywhere near 20 million? It’s preposterous

      Yeah, it’s not gonna happen.

      Teams will be there so they can say they were there and gave him a shot.

      Dude was a joke before he became a public sideshow.

    Kap won’t sign for anything lower than top ten highest paid at his position just like last time

    Ratings have fallen since kap pulled his political stunt with kneeling disrespecting the fine service men and woman that have served this country. If he signs with a team they will fall even faster, I use to tune in to watch a football game not a political demonstration. I stopped watching the NFL for that reason, I was just thinking about starting to watch it again because they seemed sincere about there support of our military and what hey have done for this country, but now I see it was just a smoke screen they truly could care less

      Why are you on this website if you don’t watch football? If you don’t have a football opinion then nobody here cares. Go back to not watching football. Also, ratings have increased more than 5% in 2019, so stop listening to everything Fox News tells you.

    If Elway isn’t impressed by what he sees he can always wait for Tebow to host his own pathetic showcase.
