Broncos reportedly the most eager to make a move for Colin Kaepernick
Will Colin Kaepernick be with the defending champs when all is said and done?

Colin Kaepernick still appears to be in limbo as the April 1 deadline for his $11.9 million guaranteed salary for 2016 approaches. But it appears the Denver Broncos are the most aggressive in trying to land the athletic quarterback
If Colin Kaepernick is going to get dealt, this would be a good week to lay the foundation. I still hear the Broncos as being the team most interested in actually getting something done and, in the end, other clubs seem willing to call the 49ers' bluff about keeping the disgruntled quarterback, going ahead and guaranteeing him that $12 million he is due while coming off three surgeries and actually to move forward with Kaepernick as their starter and attempt to rebuild shattered relationships and trust issues.
The fifth-year quarterback regressed badly last season, throwing for 1,615 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions. The team went 2-6 with him starting. He's rehabbing from surgeries on his left shoulder, right thumb and left knee.
The Broncos are in desperate need for depth at quarterback after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler opted to move on to the Texans. Denver currently has Mark Sanchez and little-used Trevor Siemian on the roster.
