John Elway offers misleading statement on Broncos pursuit of Colin Kaepernick

On Thursday, John Elway made it clear that Colin Kaepernick will not be considered if the team goes that route.

Interestingly enough, Elway left out when the offer was presented.

Kelly entered training camp as the third quarterback on the roster behind 2016 first round selection Paxton Lynch. With Case Keenum slated to start, the Broncos are in the market for another viable option. Elway responded by saying Kaepernick "had his chance" to join the team but turned down a contract offer from Denver.

As Ian Rapoport of NFL Media notes, Kaepernick was seeking a guaranteed salary when the Broncos were interested in trading for him two offseasons ago. But that doesn't appear to be the case.

Hun Sen has held onto power for decades through a complex mix of development dollars and alliances in the police, army and courts. The dissolved opposition is planning on ramping up efforts with governments overseas to put more pressure on Hun Sen .

Elway met with Kaepernick twice in 2016 as the Broncos and San Francisco 49ers tried to work out a trade that would have sent Kaepernick to Denver.

Social media went insane and wild with assumptions that Kaepernick, who has been fighting to get back in the league, would all of a sudden turn down a deal to get back in the NFL. The quarterback was slated to make $12 million with the 49ers on April 1, so he had no reason to take less, especially coming off three offseason procedures.

Kaepernick hasn't played in the National Football League since starting 11 games for the 49ers during the 2016 season, during which the 30-year-old began kneeling in protest of police brutality and racial inequality in the US justice system. The all-time great left out some important context to his answer.
