Denver Broncos president John Elway isn’t too thrilled with the quarterback depth chart, despite the recent promotion of Chad Kelly to the #2 spot behind starter Case Keenum, and could be in the market for a new backup signal caller.
“I’m not going to tell you we’re definitely going to stand pat, but I’m not telling you we’re going (in) that direction, either,” Elway said, during an appearance on 103.5 The Fox (h/t Associated Press).
Kelly’s recent performance, in which he threw for 177 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, has seen him leapfrog former 2016 1st round pick Paxton Lynch on the depth chart.
“We’ve got to have confidence that that guy that’s going to be the backup can play and win football games,” Elway said. “And so that’s why we’re still in that process of trying to see if we’ve got that guy behind Case.
“Even though Chad played very well on Saturday night—we’ll see how he does this week—but if something were to happen to Case, can he come in and continue to win football games for us?” Elway said. “That’s the big part of the evaluation process and that’s still going on.”
