Case Keenum To Sign With Denver Broncos

Case Keenum To Sign With Denver Broncos

In 2012, it was Peyton Manning.

The Denver Broncos will sign former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum.

In the process, Keenum won 10 games for the first time in his career at 29 years old.

The move increases the chances that Minnesota will sign free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to take over since Denver had been one of four suitors for him. The Vikings remain the favorite, sources told Schefter.

After Sam Bradford was hurt in the season opener, the team turned to Keenum and he helped guide the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.

Keenum completed more than two-thirds of his passes and finished the season with 3,547 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. We didn't play very well there previous year, and that's not all on the players.

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. His name is Demaryius Thomas. Now, Elway hopes another free agent will replicate Manning. "That was always fluid too, but he was our target".

The Broncos haven't made the playoffs since their Super Bowl win to close out the 2015 season; their inconsistent play on both the offensive line and at quarterback have been big reasons why they've sat out the postseason.

Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing". "Obviously, we have to get better at that position".

He also threw a touchdown on the last play of the game to Stefon Diggs to stun the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs.
