Elway Says Kaepernick Missed Chance With Broncos
“We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it.” So said Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway — who’s been deposed in activist quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s legal case against the NFL, which alleges that teams are colluding to keep him out of the league. Though Elway’s looking for a backup QB, he says Kaepernick’s rejection of a 2016 offer (at a 42 percent salary cut) disqualifies him. But since that offer was made before Kaepernick’s high-profile protests, Elway’s comments could help the plaintiff, not to mention violate the case’s NFL-sought gag order.
