Broncos cut backup QB Chad Kelly after trespassing arrest

Denver Broncos Cut Chad Kelly After Bizarre Arrest

The Denver Broncos released quarterback Chad Kelly on Wednesday morning.

"We are disappointed that Chad Kelly was arrested early this morning", the Broncos said in a statement. "After reviewing all the information and in talking with (coach) Vance (Joseph) and (president) Joe (Ellis), we agreed that releasing Chad was the right thing to do".

The Denver Broncos have chose to part ways with Chad Kelly in the wake of his arrest this week, and the quarterback reportedly was causing problems with the team before he was even taken into custody.

Police later found the man, identified as Kelly, inside a black SUV near the Gothic Theater about a block away. Following an altercation outside of a Buffalo nightclub in 2014, Kelly was charged with resisting arrest, menacing, and several other counts, for which he served 50 hours of community service as part of the non-criminal charges. After being chased out of the house, Kelly was eventually arrested.

Police and court records do not address Kelly's physical state at the time, and there is no mention of testing for alcohol or substance use.

Bottas, who was second fastest in the morning but did not set a time in the afternoon session, said: "It was a pretty boring day". Title leader Hamilton, starting on the supersoft tires, lost out to the ultrasoft-shod Raikkonen at the start.

Kelly had, seemingly, cleaned up his act since being picked with the final pick of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Broncos.

NFL Network's James Palmer reported that Kelly had been attending teammate Von Miller's Halloween party before the arrest.

According to a news release from the Englewood Police Department, Kelly, 24, was taken into custody after law enforcement received a call about a male standing outside a residence.

Broncos GM John Elway met with Kelly following the incident and ultimately made a decision to release him Wednesday morning. Kelly ran onto the field to get involved and had to be restrained. After spending his entire rookie season on injured reserve, he beat out former first round pick Paxton Lynch for the backup quarterback job in Denver. He was dismissed from Clemson in April 2014 for conduct detrimental to the program.
