Broncos Free Agency: With Brock Osweiler in Houston, will the Broncos turn their attention to Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers?
This is a pretty big bomb to drop, but the frenzy of free agency has put most people asleep…
I’ve been aboard the RG3 train, mainly because I think he offers similar upside without costing the Broncos anything via trade, but a trade for Kaepernick or signing of RG3 would not cost the Broncos any compensatory picks next year, of which they should receive plenty.
Why do I like the Kaepernick/RG3 scenario?
As it seems to be leaning toward Kaepernick, I will speak to that specifically. What Brock Osweiler lacks in experience and upside, Kaepernick has in spades. Yes, there have been questions about Kaepernick’s mechanical flaws. Yes, there are now injury concerns, but at a cheaper price tag than Osweiler, why not go after a guy who has started in a Super Bowl?
Heck, Kaepernick was a few yards short of winning the dang thing.
I’m not trying to say every reclamation project is going to work out in Denver, but with some stability in the front office and on the coaching staff, and with a team willing to buy into your abilities, heck — it just might work.
With multiple reports indicating that the Broncos could go after Kaepernick, it seems all but a foregone conclusion at this point. Obviously, nothing is ever for certain in the NFL until pen is put to paper and faxes get to the league office…
…but the prospect of adding a player like Kaepernick excites me because I think he’s got great potential in this offense, will have great teammates and coaches around him, and his potential is incredible still.
