Case Keenum reportedly plans to sign with the Broncos

If he does well again, he would go a long way in justifying Denver's decision to basically snub Cousins in free agency.

When the free agency period officially begins Wednesday afternoon, former Vikings quarterback Case Keenum plans to sign with Denver, NFL sources confirmed.

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. The 30-year old QB finished the season with 3,547 passing yards as well as 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

That would leave the Vikings, Jets and Cardinals in the running to land free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins.

After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller. According to a source, the Broncos are expected to move on from Trevor Siemian, a former seventh-round pick who started 24 games, and have already fielded calls from interested teams.

Siemian again handily beat out Lynch last summer, but the Broncos would cycle through their trio of homegrown QBs during a 5-11 season that almost cost rookie head coach Vance Joseph his job.

Kubiak has an increased role in the Broncos' personnel evaluations this year and has been a major voice as Denver prepares for free agency and the draft. That being said, we can get better in a lot of areas, like protecting the quarterback, continuing to run the football better and to play dominant defense.

Broncos general manager John Elway and head coach Vance Joseph will spend the opening of free agency on the road as they attend Baker Mayfield's Pro Day at Oklahoma on Wednesday and Josh Allen's UCLA Pro Day on Thursday.

Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing".

Elway had said early in the offseason, "For us to have a chance to get better, we have to get better at that position".

It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get.

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

The Bills have been quiet on the quarterback front, watching every bigger-name quarterback get scooped up by other teams. "We didn't play well there a year ago". He also noted the quarterback's charisma. I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly.
