Broncos expected to give Case Keenum 2-year, $36M deal

Broncos expected to give Case Keenum 2-year, $36M deal

Keenum helped power the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game last season as Minnesota went 11-3 in his regular-season starts in place of an injured Sam Bradford.

Right before the clock struck midnight to conclude the first day of the NFL's "legal tampering period" of free agency, ESPN's Adam Schefter broke news that the Denver Broncos would be signing quarterback Case Keenum at the dawn of free agency on Wednesday, March 14th.

With Keenum leaving, could Kirk Cousins land in Minnesota? The Vikings are considered the favorite for Cousins with the New York Jets and Arizona also in the mix.

The Vikings, who were subsequently blown out at Philadelphia in the conference championship, chose to let all three of their QBs - Keenum, Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater - test free agency.

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. Just a few months later, he'll be taking his talents to the Denver Broncos.

All three quarterbacks were draft picks by Elway, the Hall of Fame quarterback who has only had success at quarterback in free agency.

Siemian again handily beat out Lynch last summer, but the Broncos would cycle through their trio of homegrown QBs during a 5-11 season that almost cost rookie head coach Vance Joseph his job.

Former Texans/Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak, now a senior executive for the Broncos alongside general manager John Elway, signed Keenum as an undrafted college free agent during his stint with the Houston Texans. Keenum will have similar talent at receiver with the Broncos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. "That is what we are working on". "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position". It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get.

"There were some things we should have done differently that we didn't do".
