The Colin Kaepernick situation just became even more confusing.

After the public generally accepted the narrative Kaepernick received no offers to join an NFL team because his on-field performance couldn’t outweigh the off-the-field distractions, an NFL executive came out with a different story.

Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said the team offered Kaepernick a contract but Kaepernick turned it down.

Wow.

This is bizarre on a few fronts.

First off, why would Elway wait until now to say this as opposed to months, if not a year, ago? The entire league, and country, could’ve avoided the drama stemming from the claim NFL front offices refused to sign ​Kaepernick because they were either racist or disagreed with his beliefs.

Second, why wouldn’t ​Kaepernick accept this deal? At some point he would’ve needed to accept the reality no one was willing to give him a starting spot, so he could’ve cut his losses and worked for a starting role in Denver. The Broncos had an atrocious QB situation, wide open for Kap.

Either Kaepernick had too much pride to sign on as a backup or he felt he could better make his case and enact worthy social change as a normal citizen, relatively speaking.

Denver may have been the only organization to offer Kaepernick a deal, or we may soon find other organizations coming out of the woodworks since Elway admitted to it.
