While the Denver Broncos will be in the market for a backup quarterback, team president John Elway shut the door on the possibility that the team would entertain signing free agent signal caller Colin Kaepernick, although it has nothing to do with protests.

Elway spoke to reporters on Thursday and officially nixed the idea of the team bringing in the former San Francisco 49ers start quarterback.

“He had a chance to be here, he passed on it,” Elway said, according to USA Today’s Lindsay Jones.

Elway is referring to a nixed deal the the Broncos and 49ers had in place that would have seen Kaepernick in Denver back in 2016, but Kaepernick killed the deal by refusing to trim $5 million from his cap number and take additional pay cuts down the road.

The Dallas Cowboys are hopeful that a change of scenery will be the key to helping Tavon Austin become a complete receiver, instead of the plug-and-play type he was during his five seasons in with the Los Angeles Rams.

Cowboys’ quarterback Dak Prescott is certainly hopeful that Austin can put it all together, as he could give the signal caller a dangerous weapon to utilize moving forward, and Austin has already impressed Prescott so far, naming him as the receiver who has impressed him the most.

“I’d say Tavon for the simple fact, in the other place he was, I didn’t know he was as good of a receiver as he was and could run routes as well as he does, and catch the ball every single time,” Prescott said, according to the Dallas Star-Telegram. “For me, from that standpoint, he’s not just a gadget, gadget guy. You don’t have to run him on speed sweeps and all that steps opens up the offense and you can use him there as well. He’s a guy you can put out there, inside, outside and trust he’s going to get open.”
