Former Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum to sign with Denver Broncos

Forget Kirk Cousins Broncos need to go after Drew Brees

Keenum has been allowed to hit the open market by the Minnesota Vikings despite leading them to the NFC Championship game last season.

Elway insists the Broncos can get right back into the playoff picture with the right quarterback and tweaks to other areas of the roster.

Kubiak is now Denver's senior personnel advisor and Joseph is the team's head coach. He threw for 22 touchdowns, and his seven interceptions ranked 24th overall.

First, "missing out" on Cousins might be the biggest blessing in disguise for the Broncos. Keenum will have similar tools at his disposal in Denver that he had in Minnesota.

Keenum would have veterans Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders as his targets in Denver after Elway chose not to release either of the expensive wide receivers.

Those two realities made Keenum the more attractive choice for the Broncos - creating an aggressive push to get a deal hammered out on Monday afternoon. Don't be surprised if the Broncos maybe wait on taking a quarterback in the draft. "Obviously we have to get better at that position". This collection of draft picks would set the Broncos up nicely for both the 2018 and 2019 drafts. Whether or not Lynch pans out to be the quarterback the Broncos hoped he would, signing Keenum will give the Broncos an immediate starting option as well as an appropriate amount of time to monitor Lynch's development before deciding if they do indeed need to search for a longer-term solution.

That would leave the Vikings, Cardinals and Jets vying to land ex-Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is expected to sign a record-breaking contract this week.

Keenum, 30, brings playoff experience, strong leadership, and lingering questions about whether last season was the start of a career renaissance or an aberration.
