  Colts | Chad Kelly waived    Wed Sep 18, 04:55 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Chad Kelly was waived Wednesday, Sept. 18, after serving a two-game suspension to open the season.

Footballguys view: Kelly is now looking for another team to take a chance on him. The Colts have Brian Hoyer as their backup to Jacoby Brissett so they didn't need Kelly anymore. Kelly has a big arm and is athletic, but his off-field reputation cost him his spot with the Broncos last year. A numbers crunch sees the Colts move on from him but there should be a team or two interested in Kelly's services.

Johnson (undisclosed), WR Marcus Johnson (undisclosed), S Kai Nacua (undisclosed), CB Shakial Taylor (undisclosed) and LB Ahmad Thomas (undisclosed) and placed QB Chad Kelly on the Reserve/Suspended list.

  Colts | Chad Kelly shows signs    Fri Aug 30, 09:25 AM

Indianapolis Colts QB Chad Kelly was 13-for-16 for 138 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in the preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 29. He also rushed three times for 20 yards and a touchdown.

Footballguys view: Kelly gave the Colts zero reasons to add Brandon Weeden or Matt Cassel or Brock Osweiler. He is an exciting quarterback prospect who could give him a strong backup with future starter potential in the event that they are unwilling to pay Jacoby Brissett next year.

  Colts | Chad Kelly signs with Colts    Mon May 20, 09:49 AM

Free-agent QB Chad Kelly (Broncos) signed an undisclosed deal with the Indianapolis Colts Monday, May 20. DT Jordan Thompson was waived.

Footballguys view: Kelly's career has been a wild one in the NFL. He was 'Mr. Irrelevant' as the final pick in the 2017 NFL draft, then he worked his way up to be the primary backup to Case Keenum with the Broncos, then he was booted off the team after an off field incident after a Halloween party. Kelly was out of football for about half of the year as he dealt with his court case. Now, he'll try to make an impression with the Colts...likely as a third-string quarterback behind Andrew Luck and Jacoby Brissett.

  Colts | Chad Kelly visiting for tryout    Fri May 3, 12:44 PM

Free-agent QB Chad Kelly will try out for the Indianapolis Colts over the weekend of Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, at the team's rookie minicamp.

Footballguys view: Kelly looked like he might actually start last year for the Broncos when Case Keenum continued to struggle. Instead, he was kicked off the team after an incident where he stumbled into someone's house inebriated after a party. Kelly has a big arm and is athletic, but there's always something off the field holding him back. We'll see if he can latch on with the Colts. Head coach Frank Reich is a former teammate of Kelly's uncle, former Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.

  Colts | Indianapolis interested in Chad Kelly?    Sun Apr 28, 10:39 AM

The Indianapolis Colts met with free-agent QB Chad Kelly (Broncos) several weeks ago but the team has not decided whether to sign him, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Footballguys view: Kelly's uncle Jim is tight with Colts head coach Frank Reich. It's time for the Colts to make backup quarterback plans for next year, when Jacoby Brissett will likely sign a big deal to compete to start somewhere. Kelly could work if he keeps on the straight and narrow.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly facing release?    Tue Oct 23, 03:00 PM

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly could be released following his arrest after meeting with general manager John Elway. All options are on the table, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: There were reports swirling that the Broncos were close to moving on from Case Keenum and now that is not going to be the case. Kelly had been staying out of trouble but he fell in the draft a couple of years ago due to off field concerns. The league is investigating this matter as Kelly was arrested on early Tuesday morning for first degree criminal trespassing.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly arrested    Tue Oct 23, 01:55 PM

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly was arrested Tuesday, Oct. 23, and charged with first-degree criminal trespassing, the Englewood (Colo.) Police Department said in a news release.

Footballguys view: There was no alcohol found in the Kelly's system. Off field issues caused Kelly to fall to the last pick in the 2017 NFL draft but the Broncos decided to give him a chance. Buzz was building about the team actually giving him a shot but that is now over as their trust has to be shaken. Kelly will be lucky to stay with the team no matter the result of this arrest and investigation by authorities and the league.

  Broncos | Chad Kelly the backup    Sun Aug 19, 12:42 AM

Denver Broncos QB Chad Kelly has 'earned' the right to be the No. 2 quarterback, head coach Vance Joseph said Saturday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: Kelly has vastly outplayed Paxton Lynch and might even get himself in the conversation to start before his rookie contract is over if his development takes off. Deep dynasty league players should monitor his development. If Case Keenum goes down, we'll get a good look at where Kelly is in his development.
