  • Broncos Sign Case Keenum To 2 Years $36 Million

    QB Case Keenum intends to sign with Broncos

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

    In 2012 it was Peyton Manning and this year it's Case Keenum.

    Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter the Broncos will reel in the 30-year-old Keenum to be their quarterback of the present and the future when free agency officially opens Wednesday.

    Keenum is expected to become the first of the high-profile quarterbacks in the open market to agree to a deal.

    Keenum helped power the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game last season as Minnesota went 11-3 in his regular-season starts in place of an injured Sam Bradford.

    Keenum finished the season with 3,547 yards passing to go with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

    Keenum threw for 318 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Divisional round win over the New Orleans Saints with his improbable heave to Stefon Diggs in the closing seconds for the win.

    Keenum is also a player the Broncos felt like they knew well given the team's senior personnel advisor and former coach Gary Kubiak coached Keenum for two seasons when Kubiak was the Texans' head coach.

    Keenum's teams are 20-18 in his games as a starter and he had both of his career playoff starts this past January for the Vikings.
