Case Keenum to sign with Broncos

Case Keenum to sign with Broncos

Quarterback Case Keenum, who guided the Minnesota Vikings to the brink of the Super Bowl last season, is expected to sign with the Broncos when free agency opens Wednesday, according to several reports. His signing can not be made official until the new league year opens at 9pm GMT on Wednesday. On Tuesday morning, Schefter reported that Cousins, as expected, would sign with the Vikings on a three-year, fully guaranteed deal worth $86 million. Instead, Case Keenum intends to sign with Denver once free agency begins.

After stints with both the Houston Texans and Los Angeles Rams, Keenum seemed to turn a corner last season, playing at a Pro Bowl level despite being thrust into the starting lineup. KUSA-TV in Denver reported he will receive at least $36 million over two years.

Apparently, the Denver Broncos were not as interested in quarterback Kirk Cousins as most people were led to believe.

The 30-year-old Keenum is considered the second-best QB available on the open market.

Keenum finished the season with 3,547 yards passing to go with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Snow showers will linger into Wednesday and could cause some additional accumulation , especially in the hills. Charlie Baker said the coast is expected to see heavier snow than other parts of the state.

The Vikings decided not to apply the franchise tag to Keenum back in February, allowing him to become a free agent. Just a few months later, he'll be taking his talents to the Denver Broncos.

But it was Siemian, a seventh-rounder from Northwestern, who emerged as Manning's surprise successor in 2016. At the time, Gary Kubiak was Houston's head coach and Vance Joseph was the team's defensive backs coach. Keenum will have similar talent at receiver with the Broncos in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Broncos quarterback John Elway has talked repeatedly during the offseason about the need to get better at quarterback.

"I still think we're not too far away, " Elway said. While many are quick to write Lynch off as a bust, it should be noted that Lynch was only drafted two years ago and missed most of last season due to a shoulder injury. That doesn't all go on the players. There were some things that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
