Case Keenum Rumors: Latest Buzz on Broncos, QB's Market Going into Free Agency

He is expected to be the first to sign among a wave of quality free-agent quarterbacks, while Cousins is expected to visit at least one team before choosing where he'll play next.

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.

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

Case Keenum will sign with the Denver Broncos, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Tuesday morning. His market will likely come down to the Vikings, Jets or possibly the Cardinals.

Broncos president of football operations/general manager John Elway had made finding a long-term solution at quarterback the priority of the offseason after the Broncos limped to a 5-11 finish in 2017 with an offense that finished the year tied for 26th in scoring. He even missed the entire 2014 season with an ACL injury. That doesn't all go on the players.

He spent the 2017 season with the Minnesota Vikings and threw for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns against seven interceptions. I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly. Let's also not forget that they have the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, which they could spend on a quarterback, though the acquisition of Keenum seems to make that less likely. "Is it because he had a good team around him?" After reaching the peak of Super Bowl 50 two years ago, the Broncos have sunk on the heels of two playoff-less seasons.

Keenum, 30, was among the second tier of available quarterbacks, and after beginning his National Football League tenure in Houston as an undrafted free agent, reached the pinnacle of his five pro seasons by helping the Vikings to the NFC championship and producing the Minnesota Miracle, a game-winning, 61-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs in a divisional playoff game against the Saints.

Keenum started eight games under Kubiak in 2013, completing 54.2 percent of his passes for 1,760 yards with nine touchdown passes against six interceptions.

Case Keenum is about to cash in on his improbable 2017 run.
