Elway says Broncos are out of the Kaepernick chase

Cf7R8r73r_4k
The Broncos needed a QB and got Lynch before the Cowboys could creep back into the first round.

They met with him twice. There won’t be a third session.

With the Broncos trading up from No. 31 to No. 26 to acquire quarterback Paxton Lynch, they’re out of the running for quarterback Colin Kaepernick. General Manager John Elway has confirmed the fairly obvious reality to Mike Klis of 9News.com in Denver.

The development leaves Kaepernick without a clear destination for 2016, unless the Jets decide to abandon the pursuit of 2015 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and swing a deal for Kaepernick. And it means that Kaepernick likely will remain with the 49ers for at least another season.

The question becomes whether Kaepernick wants to be there. At some point, he needs to realize that he has no other options, and that he should focus on being the best player he can be.
