Broncos will reel in the 30-year-old Keenum to be their quarterback of the present and future when free agency officially opens Wednesday.

Keenum is a nice consolation prize for Denver, though. Prior to last season, Keenum had spent two up-and-down years with the Rams, where he compiled a 7-7 record as a starter. The journeyman went 11-3 in his regular-season starts and led the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game.

Per Volin's report, the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers are all interested in adding a veteran QB.


It appears that the Broncos are giving Keenum a two-year deal at around $19 million.

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 clinching the win.

Klis also reported that while the Broncos did have at least one negotiation with Cousins, the team did not make a "serious run" at the former Redskins quarterback and they focused their efforts on Keenum. Gang Green hasn't won a Super Bowl in 49 years, and the quarterback would become immortalized if he could bring a championship to the much-maligned franchise.


Keenum also has a connection in Denver, as Broncos senior personnel adviser Gary Kubiak coached the QB for two seasons with the Houston Texans.

Elway had said early in the offseason "for us to have a chance to get better we have to get better at that position". The market for Keenum will likely come down to the teams in that group that don't land Cousins, in other words. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position".

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


The Broncos, who own the fifth pick in next month's National Football League draft, also considered Cousins following a 5-11 season in which Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all struggled behind a porous offensive line and questionable play-calling before Mike McCoy was replaced by Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
