Kelly, who the Broncos selected with the last pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, took just one regular season snap for the Broncos over the last year and a half. It was a kneel down at the end of the first half of the Broncos game against the Los Angeles Rams.

The Broncos have quarterback Kevin Hogan on the roster and he will likely serve as the team’s backup quarterback moving forward. Hogan joined the team following training camp and has been inactive for every game this season.

    Isn’t this just a little pious for a team that has Pacman Jones on the roster? This is going to end up being a misdemeanor, he’s going to have to go to substance abuse counseling, etc. He didn’t threaten anyone or shoot anyone, etc. He did something really stupid and he deserves to be punished, but it’s not like the NFL is full of solid citizens who have never committed any crime.
