Case Keenum entered the 2018 NFL offseason as a free agent, and it didn’t take long for the signal-caller to find his new home.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Keenum is set to sign with the Denver Broncos when NFL free agency officially kicks off on Wednesday. The deal was reported when the early negotiation period opened early Tuesday morning.
“When free agency opens Wednesday, former Vikings’ quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos, sources tell ESPN,” Schefter wrote on Twitter. “First QB domino has fallen. QB race is on.” He later added, “And so with QB Case Keenum headed to Denver, Kirk Cousins is now down to three teams: Minnesota Vikings Arizona Cardinals New York Jets. Vikings remain the favorite.”
Last season with the Minnesota Vikings, Keenum played in 15 games and started 14. In his 14 starts, he led Minnesota to an 11-3 record, NFC North championship, and NFC Championship berth. Keenum threw for 3.547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions in the best season of his career.
