Broncos Interested In Kaepernick If Osweiler Leaves


Denver, CO – The Denver Broncos are interested in the services of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick if impending free agent Brock Osweiler signs elsewhere, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

It has been reported that the Broncos are preparing themselves to lose Osweiler, who the team reportedly hasn’t spoken to since negotiations stalled following offer worth $45 million over three years.

Kaepernick reportedly requested permission to be traded from the club in late February following a season of ups and downs and being benched in favor of Blane Gabbert.

The 28-year-old is under contract for another five seasons after agreeing to a team-friendly extension with San Francisco several years ago.

During Kaepernick’s five-year career, he has totaled 10,030 yards passing, 56 touchdowns and 26 interceptions. He has a career completion percentage of 59.9%, and a career QB rating of 88.4. He has also added another 1,832 yards rushing and 11 rushing touchdowns.
