Broncos' head coach Vance Joseph was asked about quarterbacks the team may consider signing, including Kaepernick specifically.
Broncos Backup Quarterback Paxton Lynch To Miss Some Regular Season Games
Lynch was injured during Denver's Week 3 preseason matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday. But he landed hard on his right shoulder as he was sacked on Denver's first possession and was replaced by Kyle Sloter. Siemian and the starters are expected to sit to both preserve their health and shift focus to the regular-season opener September 11 against the Chargers, leaving Sloter as the only available healthy quarterback. The drive resulted in a go-ahead field goal, but Lynch was removed from the game and did not return. Joseph's original plan was to keep only two quarterbacks on the active roster: Siemian as No. 1 and Lynch as No. 2.

The Broncos are unlikely to sign a vested veteran because his entire 2017 salary would be guaranteed if he's on the roster Week 1. Then there's the matter of having a backup to Siemian to start the regular season, which is a much bigger deal.
