Case Keenum To Sign With Denver Broncos: Report

Vikings closing in on signing Cousins to three-year deal

The Denver Broncos are hoping to repeat the success they had with Peyton Manning in pursuing another free agent fix at quarterback.

Players can not sign free agent contracts until the new league year opens at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Keenum had what many would consider his breakout season in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings, leading the team to the conference championship game after starting the season as a backup. The 30-year old QB finished the season with 3,547 passing yards as well as 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The Broncos were one of four teams that were viewed as the favorites to sign Cousins, the premier quarterback in this year's free-agent class.

Six years ago, Elway landed Peyton Manning, the biggest free agent prize in National Football League history, following his release by the Colts and a series of neck fusion surgeries.

With Keenum headed to Denver, Cousins' potential destinations are now down to three teams: the Vikings, the Cardinals and the Jets.

The Broncos went just 5-11 last season and will pick fifth in the upcoming NFL Draft, but they already have a solid defense in place and a number of weapons on offense, including wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Keenum is a player the Broncos know well because Kubiak, now the Broncos' senior personnel adviser, coached him for two seasons while he was head coach of the Houston Texans.

Broncos quarterback John Elway has talked repeatedly during the offseason about the need to get better at quarterback. We didn't play well there a year ago.

"I still think we're not too far away", Elway said at the combine. There were some things that we should have done, that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
