Case Keenum To Sign With The Denver Broncos

After spending the first four seasons mostly as a backup, Keenum had a career year with the Minnesota Vikings last season, helping them reach the NFC Championship game. Brock Osweiler, who also started last season, is a free agent, and will not be back.

Former Broncos coach and current front office consultant Gary Kubiak coached Keenum when he was with the Texans. The Arizona Cardinals also remain in the mix for Cousins, although financial implications could continue to complicate their pursuit.

Keenum went 11-3 with 3,547 yards passing, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions and threw that last-second heave to Stephon Diggs to stun the New Orleans Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.

Kubiak has an increased role in the Broncos' personnel evaluations this year and has been a major voice as Denver prepares for free agency and the draft.

"Even with Peyton, we weren't a for-sure thing with Peyton, " Elway said. Keenum will have similar talent at receiver with the Broncos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

ESPN first reported that Keenum would sign with the Broncos. With trade rumors swirling, and many quarterback-needy teams looking to trade up in the draft, the Broncos could find themselves in a position to draft one of these blue-chip players.

With Keenum leaving, could Kirk Cousins land in Minnesota?

But by signing Keenum, they save money against the salary cap that will allow them to make fixes to some other areas of need. "When you get opportunities like this, you've got to take advantage of them, so we're going to take advantage of it".

The Broncos, who own the fifth pick in next month's National Football League draft, also considered Cousins following a 5-11 season in which Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all struggled behind a porous offensive line and questionable play-calling before Mike McCoy was replaced by Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator. Both men will be hoping last season wasn't an anomaly for Keenum.
