ESPN Reports Keenum Will Sign With Broncos

Adjust Comment Print

John Elway, the Broncos' front office football czar, has settled on Keenum as his latest attempt to fix the quarterback situation.

With free agency's negotiating window beginning Monday, and with the official beginning of the signing period coming tomorrow afternoon, Keenum has reportedly agreed to a deal that presumably will bring the like-changing money - or at the very least, WAY more than Case Keenum's ever made -- that National Football League starting quarterbacks receive. The Vikings have been targeting Cousins for weeks and did not make much of an effort to retain Keenum.

Another report has Teddy Bridgewater ready to sign with the New York Jets.

Keenum signed for $2 million a year ago as a safety net for the Minnesota Vikings.

Since Denver has their guy in Keenum, there's no longer a need for a quarterback with the No. 5 pick.

Keenum, 30, is coming off a career season in which he threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while taking the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.

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. The wide receiver market has been hot so far in free agency. The biggest reason being he has a better track record.

But the Broncos are desperate to get back to contender status after slumping to a record of 5-11 in a 2017 season in which they tried Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler at quarterback.

The only way Denver bowing out of the quarterback race early could hurt NY is if the Broncos elect to trade the pick to a quarterback-needy team, which is a possibility.

Bradford is also a free agent.

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. "Obviously, we have to get better there, whoever is going to be the quarterback".

Using ESPN's advanced Total QBR formula, Keenum ranked at 69.7 a year ago. "So he has a lot of pressure on him, but I think [if] we get some key pieces around him, we'll make his job easier".
