What’s next for Chad Kelly and the Broncos?

Denver Broncos backup quarterback Chad Kelly was arrested early Tuesday on suspicion of criminal trespass after a couple reported he came into their suburban house uninvited and sat down on their couch "mumbling incoherently", according to court records.

It's a very weird situation, perhaps involving Von Miller's Halloween party, if you're willing to connect the dots.

According to court records, a man wearing dark trousers, a long-sleeve shirt underneath a black vest and a red scarf around his neck walked into a stranger's home after 1 a.m., sat on the couch and was "mumbling incoherently".

Yikes. Kelly didn't look THAT wonked out in his mugshot, although perhaps he's smiling because he's not entirely aware of the full circumstances of what happened?

"We're obviously very, very disappointed in Chad and the situation that he put himself into", Elway said.

"We are disappointed that Chad Kelly was arrested early this morning", the Broncos said in a statement. "We are in the process of getting all the facts and talking to Chad, and then we'll figure out exactly which direction we're going to go". However, Nicki Jhabvala, a Broncos beat writer for The Athletic, disputed that claim in a tweet: "It was not a cocaine-themed party".

Broncos Blitz podcast host Ronnie Kohrt breaks down the Kelly arrest on the latest edition of the podcast and says, Kelly needs to seek help for personal reasons that are far deeper than football. He appeared in court at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday morning and was represented by a public defender.

Kelly is hardly the first Bronco to be arrested.

He was kicked off the Clemson team in 2014 after arguing with coaches during the spring game. He ended up accepting a plea deal and avoided any jail time for the episode. He also stayed on the team and went on to serve as its starting quarterback.

The Broncos drafted Kelly with the last pick of the 2017 draft, but he missed his entire rookie season due to injury.

Despite the unfortunate nickname, sports pundits have been impressed by the strides Kelly has made. After all, Kelly, nephew of Hall of Fame Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, does have quarterback genes.
