Case Keenum to Sign Contract with Broncos After 1 Year with Vikings

Case Keenum to Sign Contract with Broncos After 1 Year with Vikings

And at the National Football League combine last month, when the Vikings begin to set up their pursuit of Cousins, they sent signals they weren't sure if Keenum could replicate his performance from 2017, when he threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions while leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.

Case Keenum's agreeable contract demands and his familiarity with Broncos adviser Gary Kubiak were big factors in why Denver will sign the quarterback.

Of that trio, the Vikings are the favorites to land Cousins. "Obviously we have to get better at that (quarterback) position", general manager John Elway said at the National Football League combine. Keenum played for Kubiak with the Houston Texans, and starred in college at the University of Houston, where he once posted a nine touchdown game. There were some things that we should have done differently that we didn't do.

Since Peyton Manning's retirement in 2016, the Broncos have featured a revolving door of starting quarterbacks acquired via free agency, a trade and the draft, and none of them have stuck.

The Broncos could invest in a player in the draft, and build around him with some of the most talented players at other positions through free agency. Elway has left open the possibility that Lynch could be the team's backup if he's ready to work on his game, but in the end, even one of Elway's most notable first-round picks couldn't avoid the team's current mission. Brock Osweiler, who also started last season, is a free agent, and will not be back.

In four seasons with the team, he averaged 17.0 points and 5.7 assists while shooting at a 35 percent mark from distance. Dillon Brooks led the team with 17 points, JaMychal Green added 14 points while Ben McLemore chipped in with 10 points.

But just exactly how good is Keenum?

Now 30 years old, Keenum is coming off a career year with the Minnesota Vikings in which he completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 3,547 yards with 22 touchdown passes against seven interceptions.

Keenum's teams are 20-18 in his games as a starter and he made both of his career playoff starts this past January for the Vikings.

Manning had a spectacular closing chapter in Denver, leading the Broncos to the playoffs in all four of his seasons, reaching two Super Bowls and winning one.

Case Keenum is about to cash in on his improbable 2017 run.
