Vikings QB Case Keenum to sign with Broncos

Broncos expected to sign free agent quarterback Case Keenum

Broncos expected to sign free agent quarterback Case Keenum

The Broncos reportedly will sign Case Keenum when free agency begins on Wednesday.

As you can see, Keenum started his career in Houston, where he played under then-head coach (and future Broncos leader) Gary Kubiak, but seldom took the field during his three seasons with the franchise.

With the Broncos apparently having settled on their quarterback, the Vikings, Bills, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals are the mostly likely teams to be actively seeking quarterbacks in free agency and the draft. Oh, and my personal (least) favorite headline, "Vikings prepared to offer Cousins monster deal".

Keenum, 30, is coming off a career season in which he threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while taking the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.

There's no guarantee that the Jets land their No. 1 quarterback target in Kirk Cousins.

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

Tillerson's schedule for Saturday also included a site visit to PEPFAR, a USA program that works to fight AIDS in the continent. Tillerson visited N'Djamena, Chad's capital, on what was later announced to be the last day of his African visit.

The Broncos expected signing of Case Keenum has a major ripple effect on the early portion of the 2018 NFL Draft, especially pertaining to the super-hyped quarterback prospects and the teams lining up to select them.

The addition of Keenum moves the Broncos immediately from the absolute bottom of the AFC West to contending for the division.

Denver chose to bypass incumbents Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch and go for Keenum, who can't sign until Wednesday. Elway and his staff have closely scouted the top quarterbacks in the class, including coaching Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen at the Senior Bowl, but there might be a high cost in taking one at No. 5 and have him sit behind Keenum. I hate to brag, but it does appear that my preferred quarterback, Sam Bradford, was the TYPE of quarterback the Vikings want (ed).

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said at the recent National Football League scouting combine. "He's coming off a tremendous season previous year and has obviously been through a lot of situations throughout his entire career". Despite that, Keenum went undrafted and spent the entire 2012 season on the Texans practice squad.

After back-to-back seasons in which the Broncos failed to make the playoffs, that sort of potential at the quarterback position could prove to be the missing piece. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
