Keenum: From Minnesota Backup To Starter To New Denver QB

Arizona Cardinals already scraping bottom of quarterback barrel

ESPN reported Case Keenum plans to sign with the Broncos when free agency opens Wednesday. This figure and the term of the contract - unlike with Cousins - should not preclude the Broncos from drafting a quarterback fifth overall if they choose to go in that direction. It's believed the Broncos didn't like fully guaranteeing the third year, or that they wouldn't have Cousins under their control for more than three years.

Davis is considered a two-down linebacker - strong against the run - while Nelson had mostly filled a third-down role - a speed player who excelled in pass coverage.

Keenum is entering his seventh National Football League season. He provides an upgrade and flexibility to make other moves. The two-year deal doesn't mortgage the team's future if things don't work out and at $36MM, Keenum's price tag is still much cheaper than what Denver would have had to commit for Kirk Cousins. I hate to brag, but it does appear that my preferred quarterback, Sam Bradford, was the TYPE of quarterback the Vikings want (ed).

He threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and just seven interceptions, helping the Vikings reach the NFC Championship Game. Neither, too, can Keenum's connection to Gary Kubiak, an advisor for the Broncos.

He was accurate, efficient and won.

Keenum led the Vikings to a magical season, and yet they refused to commit to him, choosing instead to pursue Cousins. He brings an edge and an attitude, forged from years of proving critics wrong in high school, college and the NFL.

Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all started games for the Broncos, the latter pair failing to win in any of their appearances in a miserable first year for head coach Vance Joseph.
