Bills have some interest in QB Sam Bradford

Bills have some interest in QB Sam Bradford

In a good old fashioned late-night news dump, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos (5-11 in 2017) when free agency officially begins on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal are not yet known. The 30-year-old quarterback started 14 games and set career marks in 2017 after playing sparingly for the Texans and Rams during his five prior National Football League seasons.

Keenum, 30, was among the second tier of available quarterbacks, and after beginning his National Football League tenure in Houston as an undrafted free agent, reached the pinnacle of his five pro seasons by helping the Vikings to the NFC championship and producing the Minnesota Miracle, a game-winning, 61-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs in a divisional playoff game against the Saints. He entered 2017 with a 9-15 career record after stints with the Rams and Texans. He suffered a knee injury in that game, however, and would start just once more the rest of the season, in Week 5 against Chicago, before being removed from the lineup. "To see it come true has been incredible".

Keenum threw for 318 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' divisional-round win over the New Orleans Saints, with his improbable heave to Stefon Diggs in the closing seconds clinching the win. There seemed to be a fire lit under Keenum following the return of Teddy Bridgewater, whom most expected to take over after working his way back into game shape. The Broncos had four quarterbacks with the team this past season, including Chad Kelly on injured reserve, who were former draft picks, and Denver will have simply bypassed them all to sign Keenum.

National Football League notes: Browns swing trades for QB Taylor, WR Landry, CB Randall
However, the Browns betrayed my trust and traded the 65th pick in the 2018 National Football League draft for Tyrod Taylor . Though their draft plans have been on the down low, Saquon Barkley could take the pressure off of Taylor in his first year.

Keenum is now 30 years old, and was a mediocre-to-bad quarterback for his entire career, until last season. We didn't play well there previous year.

Or as Elway put it at the scouting combine: "I didn't say it". "Obviously we have to get better at that position".

The Broncos haven't made the playoffs since their Super Bowl win to close out the 2015 season. There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
