Case Keenum expected to sign with Broncos

Case Keenum expected to sign with Broncos

Kirk Cousins, who spent his first six National Football League seasons with the Washington Redskins, is the top free-agent quarterback available (not counting Drew Brees, who is expected to remain in New Orleans).

Keenum, who has also had unsuccessful stints with the Houston Texans and Los Angeles 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.

Keenum signed for $2 million a year ago as a safety net for the Minnesota Vikings.

Within the first 12 hours of the NFL's legal tampering period Monday, the Broncos held preliminary talks with Cousins but moved in on Keenum and quickly reached an agreement by late that night.

ProFootballTalk reported Keenum is expected to receive $18-20million a year from Denver. According to Schefter, Minnesota remains the top potential destination for Cousins. "Should Cousins sign for the rumored $27, it falls right within my original argument for signing Cousins back when it was simply a pipe dream, that argument being that a quarterback with Cousins" output was definitely worth about $5-$8 million more than what the team had at quarterback the past few years.

Video released of deadly courtroom shooting
District Judge John Dowdell dismissed a lawsuit brought by the Angilau family claiming excessive force in the shooting. Then, he says, the marshal continues to fire when Angilau is already on the floor, which was "improper".

Keenum had his best season as a pro in 2017, leading Minnesota past New Orleans in the divisional playoffs.

Signing Keenum now opens the door for the Broncos to pass on a quarterback and trade down out of the No. 5 spot, which could result in a QB-needy team jumping ahead of the Jets in the draft. That's sort of a rhetorical question, as I understand that Keenum did "get" the team to the NFC Championship (I use quotes as he didn't single-handedly do that, or really perform that well as the season went on (he wasn't awful, but he was never as great as he started out as earlier in the season)).

As for Cousins, considered the most sought-after QB in free agency, the Vikings, the Cardinals and the Jets all remain in play. From 1978-9 until now the Vikings have literally not had a quarterback play in full back-to-back seasons. An injury to Sam Bradford provided a platform to play, and Keenum capitalized.
