Signing Case Keenum Is the Smarter Move for the Broncos Right Now

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

Report: Both Broncos and Cardinals interested in Case Keenum

Keenum, 30, is coming off a career year in Minnesota, where he started 14 out of 16 regular-season games in place of the injured Sam Bradford.

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).

And while the Broncos do need a new quarterback, is Keenum the answer? And the team did pick up the $4 million on Demaryius Thomas' contract, as John Elway said he would do two weeks ago at the NFL Combine.

Case Keenum's brief tenure with the Vikings appears to be over. Having a quarterback that can help us become a more efficient offense and help us score more points and not turn the ball over, that can only help us get better. I'll take that a step further: Since Sammy Watkins and Allen Robinson are both off the board, Elway can also invest in the front five. Prior to last season, Keenum had spent two up-and-down years with the Rams, where he compiled a 7-7 record as a starter. "I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly".

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.

The Denver Broncos have not wasted much time to land their new starting quarterback in free agency.

ESPN reports that the Broncos considered Cousins and also had discussion about former Keenum teammate Teddy Bridgewater, but instead went with Keenum on what is expected to be a short-term deal, per 9News.
