Brock Osweiler wasn’t it

Brock Osweiler wasn’t it
Joe Flacco Jersey , Trevor Siemian wasn’t it, Paxton Lynch certainly wasn’t it, and now Chad Kelly won’t be it. The Broncos search for that elusive “quarterback of the future” has not been a successful one and now will continue after the Broncos waived quarterback Chad Kelly. They do have veteran quarterback Case Keenum signed through the 2019 season but the journeyman veteran quarterback coming off a career year in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings appears to be just a one-time thing. Through 7 games this season, Keenum has just 8 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Keenum has thrown at least one interception in each of his games played this year.He certainly has not lived up to the Broncos expectations and with big changes coming to this team in the offseason, his spot on the roster next year isn’t completely safe. Even if he does stick on the roster, he is just signed through 2019 and the Broncos currently just have Kevin Hogan as their number two quarterback.Ick. What makes this problem even more of an issue for the Broncos is the strength of the upcoming draft class at the quarterback position. It’s a “weak class” according to most draft experts and the potential top quarterback prospect in the group may not declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. So the Broncos could be in the tough position of needing a quarterback and not having a quality prospect available to remedy their issue and only prolonging this period of sub-par quarterback play for them.One thing to note is that a “weak quarterback class” narrative doesn’t always end up being true. It was brought up often during the 2017 NFL Draft and that draft produced MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes, Deshaun Watson, and Mitchell Trubisky. All three have shown different levels of success during their short careers but they definitely proved that “weak quarterback class” narrative to be wrong. This obviously doesn’t mean the narrative surrounding the 2019 quarterback class is wrong, but just something to keep in mind as we creep closer to that time of the year. At the end of the day, the release of Kelly will force the Broncos into having to find yet another “quarterback of the future”. How they go about finding that guy and who they pick will be something we talk about down the road. However, for now, all we can do is complain about the Broncos lack of an answer at the quarterback position currently and in the near and distant future.

ATLANTA — For towering tight end Tony Gonzalez, this was a slam dunk.The 6-foot-5 Gonzalez, who turned the celebratory post-TD dunk over the crossbar into an art form, was voted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday.Joining him will be two more first-time nominees, Champ Bailey and Ed Reed, along with another defensive back, Ty Law, and center Kevin Mawae; Law and Mawae were both in their third year as finalists.The contributor nominees, Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and Cowboys and NFL executive Gil Brandt, each made it, as did senior Johnny Robinson, the defensive back who helped the Chiefs win Super Bowl 4.Gonzalez started in Kansas City and finished in Atlanta, where voters met on the eve of the Super Bowl to select the Class of 2019; they didn’t need much time to debate his worthiness.In short, Gonzalez had more than his fair share of chances to jam. (Maybe not by accident, the NFL banned the practice in 2014, the year after he retired.)The most prolific pass catcher at his position over a 17-year career Brian Dawkins Jersey , Gonzalez caught 1,325 passes (second in NFL history) for 15,127 yards (sixth) and 111 touchdowns. He was a six-time All-Pro, made 14 Pro Bowls, and his 916 catches with the Chiefs set one of 22 franchise records he held upon his retirement.He’ll be donning the yellow jacket this summer alongside three players who spent part of their careers trying to stop him.This marks the first time more than two defensive backs have made it in the same class.Bailey played 15 years — five with Washington, then 10 more with Denver after the Redskins swapped him for Clinton Portis. Like so many great cornerbacks, Bailey did not rewrite the record book, in part because he was, for a huge chunk of his career, considered the best cover guy in the league. So most quarterbacks simply avoided him.Still, he made three All-Pro teams, 12 Pro Bowls and a none-too-shabby 52 interceptions. His best-remembered pick was a 103-yard return against Tom Brady in the 2006 playoffs that did not go for a touchdown. Denver did score shortly afterward, though, on the way to the win. Eight years later, Bailey made his only Super Bowl.Reed won his only title in the 2012 season, his last with the Ravens. Running the defense from his safety position, he was a standout playmaker on a roster full of them — including Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs and Peter Boulware. Reed finished his career with 64 interceptions, and led the league in picks three times.Law was a lot like Bailey, a rock at the corner who quarterbacks avoided. He finished with 53 interceptions and three Super Bowl rings, all with the Patriots. When New England beat the Rams for its first title in 2002, Law returned a pick 47 yards for a score that gave the Patriots the lead in the second quarter; they didn’t trail after that.Law was one of the many high-profile players Bill Belichick was willing to cycle out, and his final five years were spent with Kansas City, Denver and two stints with the Jets Noah Fant Denver Broncos Jersey , including 2005, when he made a career-high 10 interceptions.Mawae, a second-round draft pick in 1994, played 16 seasons for the Seahawks, Jets and Titans. He made three All-Pro teams and joins Mike Webster, Dwight Stevenson and Jim Otto among the few true centers in Canton.Mawae earned a spot some thought might go instead to Jaguars left tackle Tony Boselli. But for Boselli, Edgerrin James, John Lynch, Richard Seymour and six others, it’s wait ’til next year.Bowlen goes in after what some believe was a longer-than-necessary wait. He is now suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, which has put the future of the Broncos’ franchise on uncertain ground. He was key in securing the NFL’s future via a number of multibillion-dollar TV contracts. The Broncos have largely prospered during his tenure, winning more than 60 percent of their games. That included the 1998 Super Bowl, when the owner famously shouted “This one’s for John” — a tribute to John Elway winning his first title.Brandt spent 29 years with the Cowboys, where his keen eye for talent helped turn Dallas into “America’s Team.” He chose eight future Hall of Famers, including Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly and Bob Hayes. He employed computers for evaluating talent and came up with psychological tests for draft prospects, two tools no NFL team could do without in the modern game.Brandt also was elected for his role as the NFL’s resident draft guru.Robinson was chosen by the Dallas Texans in the first AFL draft. The Texans became the Chiefs, and the Chiefs became Super Bowl champions. A teammate of his, Hall of Fame linebacker Willie Lanier, said Robinson was the key to a defense that helped Kansas City to two AFL titles, each of which landed the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
