Colin Kaepernick, Broncos meet
The Broncos continue to explore a potential trade for quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who met with general manger John Elway at Elway's Denver home on Thursday, an NFL source confirmed.
The meeting was held on the day Kaepernick's $11.9 million salary for next season became guaranteed, which eliminated the possibility that the 49ers would release him; he carries a $15.9 million cap hit for next season with about $19.3 million in dead money. But the team has given Kaepernick's agents permission to seek a trade, meaning other teams are allowed to speak with him directly.
Right now the Broncos have just Mark Sanchez as a possible starting QB candidate. We're a long way from Week 1, and with a very good defense to build around, one would think the Broncos would look to upgrade over Sanchez, who can be a serviceable backup.
