QB Case Keenum intends to sign with Broncos, sources say

Vikings closing in on signing Cousins to three-year deal

The Denver Broncos are expected to sign quarterback Case Keenum to a two-year contract worth around $36 million once National Football League free agency opens Wednesday.

Adam Schefter first reported Case Keenum's move to Denver late last night. Luckily for Keenum, he's used to that dynamic and seemed to thrive in it last season, but at the same time, it does make you wonder why Vikings fans were so adamant that Cousins wasn't much of an improvement (if at all) over Keenum.

Keenum threw for 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions while going 11-3 as a starter for the Vikings in place of the injured Sam Bradford last season.

Minnesota is the current favorite to sign Cousins, per Schefter.

Keenum played in two fewer games than Cousins a year ago and finished just 546 yards behind the former Washington quarterback. Siemian, Lynch and Chad Kelly are under contract for 2018 with the Broncos who also reportedly considered Kirk Cousins and Teddy Bridgewater.

The veteran quarterback will be reunited with Gary Kubiak, who was his former head coach with the Houston Texans and is now a senior personnel advisor for the Broncos. Denver would be more than happy with that kind of production this year. But in the case of many others, Keenum may be the consolation prize to Kirk Cousins, the top free agent on the market.

The roughly $10 million a year savings will help the Broncos address other problems on their roster that was only good for a 5-11 record in 2017.

Elway had said early in the offseason "for us to have a chance to get better we have to get better at that position". Unlike Cousins, Keenum also has a playoff win under his belt.

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

The Broncos had three quarterbacks start games this past season - Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler - but it was a bumpy ride on offense as the Broncos were among the league leaders in turnovers and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was sacked in November. Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg are among the best offensive linemen remaining in free agency and can both play two different positions. I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly.
