Denver Broncos: Case Keenum was a different player in 2017

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - For the second time in the past seven years, the Denver Broncos have roared into free agency to fix a quarterback problem.

After spending the first four seasons mostly as a backup, Keenum had a career year with the Minnesota Vikings last season, helping them reach the NFC Championship game.

When free agency officially opens Wednesday, Keenum is expected to receive a two-year, $36 million deal, according to Klis. The news is expected to be confirmed later on Tuesday and rubber stamped when Free Agency opens at 9pm (GMT) on Wednesday.

As much as I like Case Keenum, and as much as I like the quarterbacks in this year's draft class, I don't really like the idea of one of them sitting on the bench for the Broncos.

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

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.

The Broncos also considered Kirk Cousins and had some discussions about Teddy Bridgewater, who was a teammate of Keenum's this past season with the Minnesota Vikings.

The veteran quarterback completedly almost 68 percent of his passes and posted a 3-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

The Denver Broncos don't appear to be landing Kirk Cousins after all.

The Broncos went 5-11 last season and have missed the playoffs each of the past two years after winning Super Bowl 50 in the 2015 season.

Elway insists the Broncos can get right back into the playoff picture with the right quarterback and tweaks to other areas of the roster.

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".

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said earlier in the offseason.
