One day after his arrest for trespassing, The Denver Broncos have released quarterback Chad Kelly.

The Broncos' President of Football Operations and General manager, John Elway, made the announcement Wednesday morning.

"This was a decision that we made as an organization," Elway said. "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." Elway continues, "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."

Nephew of Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly, Chad Kelly was the backup quarterback in Denver. He was arrested Tuesday after allegedly standing outside a residence and then entering it, before being chased out by a homeowner.
