National Football League free agency 2018: Case Keenum to sign with Broncos, report says

Case Keenum Reportedly Ready To Sign With Broncos Vikings closing in on signing Cousins to three-year deal

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, former Vikings quarterback Case Keenum is headed to Denver when free agency officially opens on Wednesday.

ProFootballTalk reported Keenum is expected to receive $18-20million a year from Denver.

Brees has also played against the Vikings in two of the franchise's most memorable games - the 2009 NFC Championship game, which the Saints won in overtime after a late Brett Favre interception, and, of course, the Minneapolis Miracle.

The Broncos haven't reached the playoffs in the past two seasons and in Keenum, they get a postseason-tested quarterback. Teams looking for his services will are now narrowed down to the Vikings, Jets or Cardinals.

Keenum threw for 318 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' divisional-round win over the New Orleans Saints, with his improbable heave to Stefon Diggs in the closing seconds clinching the win.

The Broncos also considered Kirk Cousins and had some discussions about Teddy Bridgewater, who was a teammate of Keenum's this past season with the Minnesota Vikings.

John Elway has his man, and it's not Kirk Cousins. It's believed the Broncos didn't like fully guaranteeing the third year, or that they wouldn't have Cousins under their control for more than three years.

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.

Elway insists the Broncos can get right back into the playoff picture with the right quarterback and tweaks to other areas of the roster.

"I still think we're not too far away, " Elway said.

Denver is in the market for a quarterback after going through last season with Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg are among the best offensive linemen remaining in free agency and can both play two different positions. Sitting at No. 5, he is very much in play for one of the five big-time talents (Jackson, Darnold, Rosen, Mayfield, Allen) and could provide his team the comfort of a short-term quality starter alongside the promise of a long-term rookie option. That doesn't all go on the players. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
