Bills have 'some interest' in QB Sam Bradford — NFL free agency

After repeatedly swinging for fences at QB, Elway's Broncos wisely shorten up for Case Keenum

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.

Kubiak, who now serves as the team's senior personnel adviser, was a big reason why the team chose to agree to terms with free agent quarterback Case Keenum, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports.

The Broncos had three quarterbacks start games this past season - Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler - but it was a bumpy ride on offense as the Broncos were among the league leaders in turnovers and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was sacked in November. The Broncos have missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, and at the moment, linebacker Von Miller is the only former Broncos draft pick on the roster who has been named to a Pro Bowl.

At the scouting combine, two weeks before the start of free agency, Elway did compare the "fluid" nature of chasing a quarterback in free agency this year to the pursuit of Manning. Let's also not forget that they have the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, which they could spend on a quarterback, though the acquisition of Keenum seems to make that less likely.

However, with the Vikings one of the major contenders for Kirk Cousins' signature, Keenum has been looking to cash in on his status of last year's stellar campaign and the Broncos look to be his landing spot.

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.

In 2017, Keenum threw 22 touchdown passes compared to only seven interceptions, and had a 98.3 passer rating, the seventh-best mark in the National Football League (and ahead of QBs such as Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins, Ben Roethlisberger, and Matt Ryan). "Obviously we have to get better at that position".

"I still think we're not too far away, " Elway said. He played for Vance Joseph and Gary Kubiak in Houston at the beginning of his career (2012-13) and already has a feel for the staff and offensive system. That doesn't all go on the players.
