  • NFL Rumors: Case Keenum to Sign With Broncos

The Denver Broncos have already made a huge impact in free agency, signing quarterback Case Keenum to a reported two-year contract worth roughly $36 million. The Vikings have been targeting Cousins for weeks and did not make much of an effort to retain Keenum.

With a sparkling new stadium, stacked roster and head coaching stability, the Vikings jumped to the head of the line of potential suitors for Cousins.

Signing Keenum provides the Broncos with plenty of desired flexibility in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft.

Though Keenum played well last season -- 22 touchdowns and 98.3 QB rating -- he was either putrid or mediocre in his previous six seasons.

Keenum heading to Denver doesn't mean for sure that the Broncos won't draft a quarterback at No. 5, so that's something for the Jets to consider, too. Cousins referred to Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald as "a great recruiter" after the two had an impromptu meeting at an Atlanta airport last week. In 2015, his first season as the primary starter, Cousins led the league in completion percentage and with 29 touchdown passes. Los Angeles fans will surely be watching to see if the team can find a veteran free agent kicker given the team's special teams woes in 2017.

The Broncos expected signing of Case Keenum has a major ripple effect on the early portion of the 2018 NFL Draft, especially pertaining to the super-hyped quarterback prospects and the teams lining up to select them.

The Broncos had a glaring hole under center last season, cycling through Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler en route to an unexpected 5-11 record and last-place finish in the AFC West. Most importantly, it's a win for Cousins, whose self-confidence paid off in a big way. With Denver committing a first-round pick to Lynch coupled with the fact that he has very little trade value, the Broncos were always likely going to deal Siemian away. It seems like the obvious choice to take Cousins over Keenum, but where does the latter rank now? "I think we'll get a couple more pieces on offense - I think he should be able to do the job". There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
