Case Keenum: Broncos signing former Vikings quarterback

Bengals QB AJ McCarron waiting on Kirk Cousins domino to fall, linked to Broncos

I feel like the Broncos are a quarterback away from at least contending for an AFC West title, and this move could pay nice dividends for them.

Denver's two-year deal with Keenum reportedly won't prevent them from taking a quarterback with the fifth overall pick, though their options are definitely open.

Keenum, Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees are considered the top quarterbacks in free agency, with the Broncos heavily evaluating Cousins and Teddy Bridgewater before deciding Keenum would be their pick.

If Cousins agrees to sign for Minnesota's offer, it would make him the NFL's highest-paid player based on average salary per season.

He finished second in the National Football League in completion percentage, and despite not starting all 16 games in the regular season, he had 22 touchdown passes compared to just seven interceptions.

Sources first notified ESPN of Keenum's intention to sign with the Broncos. Brock Osweiler is a free agent and isn't expected back with the Broncos.


Elway had said early in the offseason, "For us to have a chance to get better, we have to get better at that position".

Only the winless Cleveland Browns threw more interceptions than the Broncos' 22, and Denver had just one receiver catch more than 50 passes and finish with more than 560 yards receiving - Demaryius Thomas, with 83 catches and 949 yards. McCarron walked into a free agency along with a colossal of other veteran quarterbacks hoping for a starting job.

"We all understand on how the quarterback position has a direct influence on how your team plays", Joseph said in February. "That was always fluid too, but he was our target".

It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get. He has lost back-to-back training camp battles to Siemian and has four career starts, and he lost crucial developmental time in 2017 with shoulder and ankle injuries. However, that wasn't good enough for him to get drafted. That doesn't all go on the players.

"There were some things we should have done differently that we didn't do".

That doesn't appeal to me for a team that constantly preaches it will not rebuild.
