The Denver Broncos cut quarterback Chad Kelly Wednesday after he was arrested on a charge of first-degree criminal trespass.

John Elway told the media:

This was a decision that we made as an organization. After reviewing all the information and in talking with Vance (Joseph) and Joe (Ellis), we agreed that releasing Chad was the right thing to do. Even though Chad’s no longer part of our team, we’ve offered to help him however we can and are supportive of him in every possible way.

I hate to say I told you so, but I most certainly did say this was likely to happen. You can’t be getting arrested for allegedly trespassing in the early morning hours and expect to stick around for long. Especially, considering the fact he isn’t owed any more money.

I’m sure somebody will pick him up. Now we’ll just have to wait to see who it is and if he straightens out at all. I’m not exactly holding my breath.
