Denver Broncos going after free-agent fix at quarterback

Former UH QB Case Keenum agrees to deal with Broncos: Reports

The Denver Broncos search for a quarterback may have finally come to a close as Minnesota Vikings free agent Case Keenum is signing with Denver.

Although Kirk Cousins has been touted as the top quarterback to hit free agency this year, the Broncos, after extensive evaluation of all their options, felt more comfortable with Keenum. Keenum and the Vikings earned the No. 2 seed and advanced to the NFC Championship following a last-second touchdown pass from Keenum to Stefon Diggs in an NFC Divisional Round game against the Saints.

ProFootballTalk reported Keenum is expected to receive $18 million to $20 million a year from Denver.

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.

Between the Sandy Hook massacre and the US Capitol protest, about five years and three months have passed. All of the shoes were donated , and some of them belonged to actual victims, BuzzFeed News reports.

Keenum, who has also had unsuccessful stints with the Texans and Rams, went 11-3 in the regular season as a starter for the Vikings, throwing for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns with just seven interceptions.

Case Keenum #7 of the Minnesota Vikings reacts after a failed fourth down attempt in the fourth quarter of the game against the Detroit Lions on October 1, 2017 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

He played for coaches Vance Joseph and Gary Kubiak in Houston at the beginning of his career (2012-13) and already has a feel for the staff and offensive system.

All three quarterbacks were draft picks by Elway, the Hall of Fame quarterback who has only had success at quarterback in free agency. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position". We just have to figure out a way to get it right. I'll take that a step further: Since Sammy Watkins and Allen Robinson are both off the board, Elway can also invest in the front five. "We didn't play well there previous year". Throughout his seven-year career, there's been a reason he was nearly always thrust into an emergency starter role, and now he has the confidence and comfort of at least a one-year residency under center in Denver. There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
