Case Keenum expected to sign with Broncos

Keenum helped power the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game last season as Minnesota went 11-3 in his regular-season starts in place of an injured Sam Bradford.

His last-second touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs, dubbed "The Minneapolis Miracle", sent the Vikings to the conference title game, where they were thrashed 38-7 by the Philadelphia Eagles. KUSA-TV in Denver reported he will receive at least $36 million over two years.

The Broncos had three quarterbacks start games this past season - Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler - but it was a bumpy ride on offense as the Broncos were among the league leaders in turnovers and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was sacked in November.

Keenum may not hold the star power of a Kirk Cousins, but he comes at a significantly smaller price and has every chance to accomplish the same task a hypothetical Cousins signing would have: get the Broncos back into the playoffs.

Manning had a spectacular closing chapter in Denver, leading the Broncos to the playoffs in all four of his seasons, reaching two Super Bowls and winning one.

Marcus Smart Heading To New York For Second Opinion On Thumb Injury
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported it first, noting the injury was being called a sprain but was still under scrutiny. The C's top bench option injured his thumb while diving for a loose ball in Sunday's loss to the Indiana Pacers .

While there have been no reports of contract numbers, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe has speculated that Keenum "could be had" for somewhere in the neighborhood of $16-$18 million per season.

All three quarterbacks were draft picks by Elway, the Hall of Fame quarterback who has only had success at quarterback in free agency. Their inconsistent play on both the offensive line and at quarterback have been big reasons why they've sat out the postseason. With trade rumors swirling, and many quarterback-needy teams looking to trade up in the draft, the Broncos could find themselves in a position to draft one of these blue-chip players.

While not all are sold on the idea of Kirk Cousins being a franchise quarterback, most experts admit that he's a far better option behind center than a guy like Keenum. That doesn't all go on the players.

"There were some things we should have done differently that we didn't do. I think we still have a good defensive football team".
