Former Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum to sign with Denver Broncos

Free-agent quarterback Case Keenum "intends" to sign with the Broncos, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Keenum has been allowed to hit the open market by the Vikings despite leading them to the NFC championship game last season.

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

The move increases the chances that Minnesota will sign free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to take over since Denver had been one of four suitors for him.

Brock Osweiler is a free agent and isn't expected back with the Broncos.

The New York Jets also have been in the mix for Cousins, who has passed for 4,000 or more yards each season since becoming Washington's starter in 2015.

Bihar , where votes are being counted for one Lok Sabha constituency and two Lok Sabha seats, seems headed for a status quo. The results were expected to be declared by afternoon, an Election Commission (EC) official said.


The Broncos went just 5-11 last season and will pick fifth in the upcoming NFL Draft, but they already have a solid defense in place and a number of weapons on offense, including wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

At the National Football League scouting combine this month, Elway said, "we'll continue to look at all of the options out there when it comes to quarterback".

Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing. That is what we are working on".

It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get. We didn't play well there previous year.

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said earlier in the offseason. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position". There were some things that we should have done, that we should have done differently that we didn't do. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
