Case Keenum expected to sign with Broncos

Former Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum to sign with Denver Broncos

What might John Elway have up his sleeve this year?

With the Broncos apparently having settled on their quarterback, the Vikings, Bills, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals are the mostly likely teams to be actively seeking quarterbacks in free agency and the draft. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft signed with Minnesota in 2016 and missed most of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a torn meniscus.

Keenum also has a connection in Denver, as Broncos senior personnel adviser Gary Kubiak coached the QB for two seasons with the Houston Texans. Cousins has a pair of top-tier wide receivers to throw to in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs as well as a reliable tight end in Kyle Rudolph.

Keenum just completed the best season of his career, which saw him guide the Minnesota Vikings to an 11-3 record and a berth in the NFC Championship Game.

The Broncos entered the offseason in the market for a new starting passer after a disastrous 2017 season featured a rotation of three different starters.

This is part of the reason the Broncos believe Keenum is a better fit.

Denver chose to bypass incumbents Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch and go for Keenum, who can't sign until Wednesday. The Broncos, since winning the Super Bowl in 2016, have failed to reach the playoffs and back-to-back disappointing years, due largely to inconsistency and lack of production from the QB position. The Jets have the most salary-cap room in the league and can easily afford Cousins, but the Vikings would present Cousins a win-now opportunity. I do like that it's 15 minutes away rather than the 1,500-mile trek I'd have to make to say thanks.

Free agency is always a fun time in a player's career, as they get to choose where they get to play out the next years of their career. That move was primarily aimed at giving Minnesota depth at the quarterback position behind anticipated starter Sam Bradford given the major knee injury to Teddy Bridgewater. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
