Former Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum to sign with Denver Broncos

Keenum expected to sign with Broncos

The Broncos entered the offseason as the favorites to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins, but the potentially record-breaking contract of demands for Cousins led the Broncos to move aggressively on Keenum.

Since Peyton Manning's retirement in 2016, the Broncos have featured a revolving door of starting quarterbacks acquired via free agency, a trade and the draft, and none of them have stuck.

"I still think we're not too far away, " Elway said.

However, ESPN reported that the 10-time Pro Bowl selection said via email that his "decision will be based purely on my health ". Tim Benz says the Landry acquisition was a great haul, but the several other deals haven't quite moved the needle enough.

Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum intends on signing with the Denver Broncos when free agency opens on Wednesday. according o ESPN's Adam Schefter.

There was a possibility that Keenum could have returned to the Vikings in 2018, but the team did not want to give him the kind of money (more than $20 million per year) that some had been estimating he could get in the open market.

ESPN first reported the news early Tuesday morning, adding that the Broncos also considered Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and had conversations about Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater before zeroing in on Keenum. Let's also not forget that they have the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, which they could spend on a quarterback, though the acquisition of Keenum seems to make that less likely. Kubiak coached Keenum for two seasons (2013-2014) when Kubiak was the Texans head coach. That doesn't all go on the players.

Even though the Farc has been far behind from what was anticipated, the peace deal assures few seats to be won. Results of Sunday's vote, however, show that many still disagree with the terms of the 2016 peace deal .

In 2017, Keenum threw 22 touchdown passes compared to only seven interceptions, and had a 98.3 passer rating, the seventh-best mark in the National Football League (and ahead of QBs such as Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins, Ben Roethlisberger, and Matt Ryan). After reaching the peak of Super Bowl 50 two years ago, the Broncos have sunk on the heels of two playoff-less seasons. I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly. In Minnesota's two playoff games, he tacked on 589 more yards, two touchdowns, three picks and a 60.2 completion percentage.

But the biggest impact of all of this is the multimillion-dollar admission that Lynch has not become what the Broncos hoped he would be. Case Keenum is taking over.
