Broncos release QB Chad Kelly after arrest on trespassing charge

Kevin Hogan

The Denver Broncos announced Wednesday morning that they are waiving quarterback Chad Kelly follwoing his arrest early Tuesday morning in Englewood, Colorado.

"We are disappointed that Chad Kelly was arrested early this morning", the Broncos said in a statement. Torres said he hit Kelly with a vacuum tube to get him out of their house and away from his daughter and son.

According to court records, a couple reported that a stranger entered their home in the Denver suburbs after 1 a.m. Tuesday, sat down on their couch and was "mumbling incoherently". The 24-year-old's struggles began when he was kicked off his high school team for disciplinary reasons.

After Kelly left, police were called and officers found Kelly inside a black SUV in front of the Gothic Theatre on South Broadway not far from the residence.

The latest reporting from NFL Media's James Palmer backs up that notion and adds more information about what led to Kelly's arrest.

Days after he was arrested for trespassing following teammate Von Miller's Halloween party, Kelly is being released from Denver's roster.

Kelly fell to the seventh round of the 2017 National Football League draft due to injury and a litany of off-field issues that plagued him throughout his college career, including being dismissed from Clemson in 2014. An occupant at the residence chased the man out, and a search ensued. There, Kelly was involved in physical altercations with a guest and security officials before being escorted out of the party.

According to a police report, Kelly allegedly said, "I'm going to go to my auto and get my AK-47 and spray this place". Kelly also later played at the University of Mississippi.

Chad Kelly missed his rookie season while recovering from knee and wrist injuries, then beat out former first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch last summer to serve as the backup for starter Case Keenum. He was dismissed from Clemson in April 2014 for conduct detrimental to the program.
