John Elway met the media after practice as well. The GM was asked in Colin Kaepernick would be an option for a back up quarterback. Elway answered, “Colin had a chance to be here. We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it. He had a chance to be here. He passed on it.”

Elway also said he looks at the first preseason game as a “hiccup.” He was disappointed and expects more this weekend. Elway added, “playing well is more important than starting fast”
