Case Keenum: We're going to take advantage of free agency

  • Forget Kirk Cousins Broncos need to go after Drew Brees

Quarterback Case Keenum is reportedly expected to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency officially opens on Wednesday.

And a new report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Monday suggests that one of the teams in need of a veteran quarterback, the Denver Broncos, could turn to McCarron at some point during free agency. Luckily for Keenum, he's used to that dynamic and seemed to thrive in it last season, but at the same time, it does make you wonder why Vikings fans were so adamant that Cousins wasn't much of an improvement (if at all) over Keenum. Keenum went 11-3 in 14 starts for the Vikings after taking over for Sam Bradford and played a big role in their run to the NFC Championship Game. Cousins would now appear to be the favorite to replace Keenum in Minnesota. Teams looking for his services will are now narrowed down to the Vikings, Jets or Cardinals. "Should Cousins sign for the rumored $27, it falls right within my original argument for signing Cousins back when it was simply a pipe dream, that argument being that a quarterback with Cousins" output was definitely worth about $5-$8 million more than what the team had at quarterback the past few years. Unfortunately, it's not the one Broncos players, most notably Von Miller, have been working hard to recruit all offseason in Kirk Cousins. The Broncos need a couple more moves at offensive line to give Keenum the kind of protection he had a year ago but no matter what, he's a massive upgrade from the last two seasons at QB for Denver.




The roughly $10 million a year savings will help the Broncos address other problems on their roster that was only good for a 5-11 record in 2017. Unlike Cousins, Keenum also has a playoff win under his belt. 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. "Obviously we have to get better at that position". There were some things that we should have done differently that we didn't do.

Denver is in the market for a quarterback after going through last season with Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
