Broncos hope Case Keenum can repeat this Jake Plummer stat

The Denver Broncos will sign former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum.

After stepping in as starting QB for the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 of the 2017 season, Keenum led the team to a 13-3 record, including a trip to the NFC Championship game where they lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

Keenum went 11-3 with 3,547 yards passing, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions and threw that last-second heave to Stefon Diggs to stun the New Orleans Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.

However, with the Vikings one of the major contenders for Kirk Cousins' signature, Keenum has been looking to cash in on his status of last year's stellar campaign and the Broncos look to be his landing spot.

Bradford is also a free agent. The Vikings are considered the favorite for Cousins with the New York Jets and Arizona also in the mix.

At the scouting combine, two weeks before the start of free agency, Elway did compare the "fluid" nature of chasing a quarterback in free agency this year to the pursuit of Manning.

For Keenum, he will now face a pile of expectations in a quarterback-crazed region that saw its team win a Super Bowl just two seasons ago. He signed with the Houston Texans who at that time were coached by current Broncos senior advisor Gary Kubiak.

At the National Football League scouting combine this month, Elway said, "we'll continue to look at all of the options out there when it comes to quarterback". Misses don't bother me.

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said earlier in the offseason. We didn't play well there past year. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position". I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly.
