Keenum to sign with Broncos when free agency begins

Keenum to sign with Broncos when free agency begins

With AP Photos.The Denver Broncos are hoping to repeat the success they had with Peyton Manning in pursuing another free-agent fix at quarterback.

Instead, they're set to sign Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum when the new league year begins on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

With Keenum leaving, could Kirk Cousins land in Minnesota? With Denver no longer interested in signing him, the Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals appear to be the three possible destinations for the former Washington Redskins' quarterback. Gang Green hasn't won a Super Bowl in 49 years, and the quarterback would become immortalized if he could bring a championship to the much-maligned franchise. In Keenum, it would get a 30-year-old journeyman who led the Vikings to the NFC championship game after permanently replacing an injured Sam Bradford in Week 5.

Keenum also has a connection in Denver, as Broncos senior personnel adviser Gary Kubiak coached the QB for two seasons with the Houston Texans.


In the meantime, Denver is coming off an atrocious 5-11 season.

"I still think we're not too far away", Elway said at the combine. Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg are among the best offensive linemen remaining in free agency and can both play two different positions. That doesn't all go on the players. Prior to last season, Keenum had spent two up-and-down years with the Rams, where he compiled a 7-7 record as a starter. There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do.

While this might puzzle some Broncos fans who thought the team was clearing the decks to dabble in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, executive vice president John Elway might have made the smarter play. "I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly".
