Quarterbacks are currency
The most valuable commodity in today’s NFL is a good quarterback.
What’s the harm in the Broncos showing up to Kaepernick’s workout and at least thinking about this?
Look at the Philadelphia Eagles when they signed Mike Vick back in 2009. Vick was out of the league for a couple of years before they signed him in 2009 when they had the aging (33) Donovan McNabb and second-round pick Kevin Kolb on the roster already.
Vick was simply depth and a flyer type for Andy Reid. The Broncos don’t necessarily have the same type of system and infrastructure in place as the Eagles maybe did back then, but Vick ended up being a very valuable player for Philadelphia.
What about the Jets’ recent situation with Teddy Bridgewater? They signed him on the off chance he was still healthy enough to play, and ended up getting a third-round pick for him after a couple of preseason appearances.
Every situation is different, and Kaepernick is 32 years old now, but if he’s got anything left in the tank, the Broncos could be the team that lets him put some good things on tape and reap the benefits via trade or compensatory pick.
