Denver Broncos: ESPN’s Mark Domenik, a former NFL GM, thinks the Colin Kaepernick trade to the Broncos is already done…
Because you haven’t had a Denver Broncos/Colin Kaepernick fix in a few days, former NFL GM Mark Domenik — now of ESPN — put a little front office perspective on the status of a potential trade between the two teams.
Broncos fans shouldn’t get excited and start monitoring Twitter minute-by-minute every single day to find out if Kaepernick will be a Bronco. Don’t worry — if you’re around on the weekend of the 2016 NFL Draft, you’ll know. They key, like Domenik stated, is going to be whether or not the 49ers get the quarterback they want, and I’m guessing that quarterback is Carson Wentz or Jared Goff.
The Cleveland Browns are expected to take one of those two guys with their 2nd overall selection, so the 49ers could be looking to trade up to get the guy they want, possibly to the 1st overall pick.
Who really knows?
The Broncos are picking 31st because they are the champions, and the Patriots are cheaters. I just thought I would interject that, because it’s nice to not be picking in the top 10, and it’s also nice to have your draft spot boosted up because your biggest rival got caught in a web of lies.
Back to Kaepernick.
Since reports emerged that Kaepernick was not willing to take a pay cut, the trade rumors have gone almost completely silent. Adam Schefter had reported that compensation for a Kaepernick trade had been agreed upon, and then he gave the trade a 25 percent chance of happening.
Mike Klis of 9News in Denver said that the trade doesn’t look good but he still believes it will happen. He recently put Kaepernick as the number one most likely option to be the starting QB for the Broncos on the NFL’s opening night this fall.
We will have to wait for the draft for this saga to finally be over. Until then, we’ll continue to put our attention on the draft prospects that are also options to join this team in the near future.
The Super Bowl champions are not often looking for a new quarterback, especially this deep into the offseason. There’s never a dull day in Broncos Country.
