While Chad Kelly quietly waits in the wings, he appears to be improving during this offseason as he was spotted working out with Phil Simms.
With all of the talk about the Denver Broncos quarterback situation, it is a surprise that not many are mentioning Chad Kelly as a possible replacement for the team. The reasoning does make sense as he is coming off the reserve/non-football injury list.
Denver’s quarterback situation is full of question marks. Elway will shop Trevor Siemian. Brock Osweiler is testing free agency. And Paxton Lynch’s future remains in doubt. Chad Kelly is perhaps the only “safe” quarterback as of now. But by the looks of things, he is doing well this offseason.
Coming from his uncle’s Instagram account, the great Jim Kelly, it appears that things are going well for the second year quarterback out of Ole Miss. Chad Kelly was spotted today working out with NFL legend Phil Simms. And by the looks of the video, he is moving great and has quite the arm on him.

Off-field issues and injuries prevented him from going higher. Chad Kelly’s role in 2018 intrigues me. With enough work, he could work himself up to the backup role. We will know for sure in a few months.
