ESPN Reports Keenum Will Sign With Broncos

Report Both Broncos and Cardinals interested in Case Keenum

Siemian and Brock Osweiler, another Broncos quarterback who will enter free agency Wednesday, are expendable now that Denver has added Keenum to a quarterback room that will return former first-round quarterback Paxton Lynch and seventh-rounder Chad Kelly.

Seemingly out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, with the free-agent quarterback reportedly deciding between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets, it was assumed that signing Keenum would be an acceptable "Plan B" to any failed attempt at signing Cousins (or Drew Brees). Instead of being forced into drafting a quarterback, the Broncos may be able to consider running back Saquon Barkley and guard Quenton Nelson, with of whom are considered the best prospects at their respective positions in quite some time.

Keenum turned in the best season of his career in 2017 when he led the Minnesota Vikings to an 11-3 record, completed 67.6 percent of his passes and threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and just 7 interceptions. After reaching the peak of Super Bowl 50 two years ago, the Broncos have sunk on the heels of two playoffless seasons.

Siemian again handily beat out Lynch last summer, but the Broncos would cycle through their trio of homegrown QBs during a 5-11 season that almost cost rookie head coach Vance Joseph his job.

Broncos general manager John Elway and head coach Vance Joseph will spend the opening of free agency on the road as they attend Baker Mayfield's Pro Day at Oklahoma on Wednesday and Josh Allen's UCLA Pro Day on Thursday.

According to James Palmer of NFL Network, Denver has picked up the option for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position", general manager John Elway said at the National Football League combine. Misses don't bother me. "That is what we are working on".

In signing Keenum, the Broncos got their best possible option at quarterback.

"I still think we're not too far away", Elway said at the combine. "We didn't play well there past year". There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do. "I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly".
