Keenum Intends to Sign with Broncos

Wednesday, 14 Mar, 2018

They are without a quarterback, which means they better land Kirk Cousins.

Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all started games for the Broncos, the latter pair failing to win in any of their appearances in a miserable first year for head coach Vance Joseph. It was interesting to see Keenum make the first major wave of news during National Football League free agency and not strategically wait and see what Cousins does, which could have improved his asking price from a desperate team looking for a silver medal. He played two-plus seasons each for the Texans (where he played for Broncos adviser Gary Kubiak) and Rams, and one season with the Vikings.

He threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and just seven interceptions, helping the Vikings reach the NFC Championship Game.

Out of those three teams, the Jets have the most cap space available, but the Vikings offer Cousins the best supporting cast to immediately compete for a Super Bowl.

This will likely come as a shock to many, as most expected John Elway to eye Cousins to fill their big need at the position.

Anyway, the Broncos have their starting quarterback. I thought they needed the right guy to pick the right guy. But that doesn't go all on the players, too. "I'm excited about where we are and think that we have a chance to get back in the thick of things quickly". Denver also has the No. 5 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft but should be off the board for taking an early QB. That leaves open the possibility that he would be a placeholder at the position until a young quarterback taken in the draft is ready to play.
