QB Case Keenum leaving Vikings to sign with Broncos

QB Case Keenum leaving Vikings to sign with Broncos

John Elway is looking to free agency for his fix at quarterback following a season in which all three of his drafted QBs fell flat in Denver.

Keenum is a free agent and can officially sign beginning Wednesday afternoon.

His presence should make the Vikings a Super Bowl contender after they reached the NFC title game under Keenum last season.

The Vikings reportedly are one of the finalists for Cousins, along with the Jets and Cardinals. Oh, and my personal (least) favorite headline, "Vikings prepared to offer Cousins monster deal".

Since Denver has their guy in Keenum, there's no longer a need for a quarterback with the No. 5 pick. Owning a 9-15 career record as a starter, Keenum posted a 12-4 mark last season, counting the postseason. Keenum went 11-3 in 14 starts for the Vikings after taking over for Sam Bradford and played a big role in their run to the NFC Championship Game.

Throughout the off-season, many fans expected the Broncos to target Washington Redskins free-agent hurler Kirk Cousins.

Neither the Oakland Raiders nor the Los Angeles Chargers have made a splash in the early free agency period.

ESPN is reporting that Vikings Quarterback Case Keenum will sign with the Denver Broncos. They are expected to sign the veteran when free agency opens on Wednesday, per an National Football League source. But it's clear the Broncos have to do more beyond Keenum's deal.

The main question about Keenum, then, is whether last season represented his true coming of age or if it was an anomaly.

The Broncos had a glaring hole under center last season, cycling through Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler en route to an unexpected 5-11 record and last-place finish in the AFC West. That allows the Broncos to address other needs and prevents them from stealing the likes of Baker Mayfield or Josh Allen from the Jets.

"I still think we're not too far away". "Obviously, we have to get better at that position".

The Broncos won all five games past year where the quarterback's rating was above an 85. "I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly".
