Check out Case Keenum on ESPN's 'QB Camp' in 2012

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

The move comes after Case Keenum, last year's starter at quarterback, reached a deal to sign with Denver; he will do that Wednesday, the first official day of free agency. He's played the complete schedule twice, missed the entire 2014 season and was limited to two games with the Vikings in 2017.

Keenum led the Minnesota Vikings this past season to the NFC Championship game after playing a key role in the "Minnesota Miracle" in which Keenum threw a prayer pass to Stephon Diggs with no time left. Of the teams thought to be shopping for a starting quarterback in free agency, all but one appeared to have a deal in place for Wednesday. The 30-year old QB finished the season with 3,547 passing yards as well as 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.




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. There were some things that we should have done differently that we didn't do.

They also have the fifth overall selection in the National Football League draft, and it seemingly remains possible that they could consider taking a quarterback early in the draft. I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things rather quickly because I think we still have a good defensive football team. That leaves open the possibility that he would be a placeholder at the position until a young quarterback taken in the draft is ready to play.
