The recent trespassing arrest of Chad Kelly might be more than just an embarrassing moment for the quarterback. It could cost him his job with the Denver Broncos.
According to a report, general manager John Elway is so upset about it that releasing Kelly is an option
#Broncos GM John Elway met with QB Chad Kelly following his arrest, I’m told. Elway is extremely angry with the player (not the Western-themed party that Von Miller throws every year where many community members attend). All options — including release — on the table for Kelly.

Kelly certainly doesn’t have any on-field equity built up. He was a seventh-round pick in 2017, and in his first two seasons has seen action for all of one play and has yet to even throw a pass.
Additionally, we must remember that Kelly had character issues while in college. So, any additional issues that came were only going to add to his problems.
