Case Keenum is joining his fifth team in five years and the
Denver Broncos are turning to their fifth quarterback since Peyton Manning
retired 24 months ago.

General manager John Elway called Keenum ”a great fit for us” after the
sixth-year pro parlayed a breakout year in Minnesota into a two-year Josh Rosen
Jersey Cardinals
, $36 million deal with Denver.

”Along with that experience,” Elway said, ”his leadership and competitiveness
are what you look for in a quarterback.”



Elway, by the way, isn’t done looking at quarterbacks.

Elway and coach Vance Joseph were in Norman, Oklahoma, checking out Baker
Mayfield’s pro day when free agency opened Wednesday. Then they were headed for
Los Angeles to watch Josh Rosen’s pro day at UCLA on Thursday.

Also, a person with knowledge of the talks told The Associated Press the
Broncos were in negotiations Wednesday to trade QB Trevor Siemian to Minnesota,
where the Vikings are pursuing free agent Kirk Cousins to be their starter.

The Broncos were busy when free agency opened Youth Minnesota

million); adding cornerback Tramaine Brock (one year, $4 million); finalizing
Aqib Talib’s trade to the Los Angeles Rams; and trying to mov[img]http://chikoz.com/public/album_photo/88/1f/1f69_b92e.jpg?c=cd93[/img]e Siemian, who won
the starting QB job in Denver each of the last two years.

Keenum is expected to sign his deal Thursday, giving the 30-year-old
journeyman the big payday that’s long eluded him and taking the pressure off
Elway to use the fifth overall pick in the draft next month on a
quarterback.

It’s no guarantee, however, that Elway won’t still use that pick on a QB.

Besides Mayfield and Rosen, other high-profile fixes for franchises with
quarterback quandaries such as Denver’s include Wyoming’s Josh Allen, USC’s Sam
Darnold Ravens Game Jerseys ,
Louisville’s Lamar Jackson and Oklahoma State’s Mason Rudolph.

Coming off a career-changing season, Keenum was widely considered the
second-most attractive veteran QB on the market behind Cousins. And he is a
player the Broncos know well because Gary Kubiak, now the Broncos’ senior
personnel adviser, had him for two seasons while Kubiak was head coach of the
Houston Texans.

”Case is perfect for our team, both as a player and as a person,” said
Joseph, who also worked for the Texans. ”He’s playing the best football of his
career right now and has gotten better with every opportunity he’s had. Being
around him in Houston, Case is a tremendous person and teammate with strong
leadership skills and a terrific work ethic. He’ll be great in our locker
room.”

Keenum, who made $2 million last year Minnesota Vikings Jerseys

, went 11-3 in place of an injured Sam Bradford, leading the
Vikings to the NFC championship game.

He threw for more than 3,500 yards with 22 touchdowns and seven
interceptions. His signature moment was that last-second 61-yard touchdown toss
to Stefon Diggs that stunned the Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.

The Broncos haven’t been back to the playoffs since Manning retired following
Denver’s 24-10 triumph over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 two years
ago.

They’ve cycled through Mark Sanchez, Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton
Lynch, while going a combined 14-18.

The Broncos, coming off a 5-11 season, were considered an early front-runner
to land Cousins. Minnesota, however Authentic

, had a sparkling stadium, new
state-of-the-art training facility, stacked roster and coaching stability to
offer him, while the Broncos’ main magnet was Von Miller.

Even though he issued a public plea for Cousins to join him in Denver, Miller
is welcoming Keenum to town .

”Looks/Feels right to me!” Miller said in an Instagram post on Tuesday. ”We
got what we were looking for! Franchise QB that’s the perfect fit for DENVER!
(at)johnelway with the deep 3 pointer! Like always! Leeettttss Goooo!!!

now!”

Notes: The Broncos placed second-round tenders on two restricted free agents:
C Matt Paradis and OLB Shaq Barrett. They declined to offer a tender to WR
Bennie Fowler III.
