We may have seen the last of Case Keenum in a Vikings uniform.

This figure and the term of the contract - unlike with Cousins - should not preclude the Broncos from drafting a quarterback fifth overall if they choose to go in that direction.

The Vikings have no quarterbacks under contract for 2018 but have been linked with both Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins and Drew Brees, who has yet to be re-signed by the Saints.

Denver were also reported to be in the hunt for Cousins having struggled through three options under centre last season but general manager John Elway has made his move for Keenum.

The Vikings, who were subsequently blown out at Philadelphia in the conference championship, made a decision to let all three of their QBs - Keenum, Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater - test free agency. Even Broncos players, specifically Von Miller, openly campaigned for Cousins to come to Denver this offseason. Don't be surprised if the Broncos maybe wait on taking a quarterback in the draft.

At the scouting combine, two weeks before the start of free agency, Elway did compare the "fluid" nature of chasing a quarterback in free agency this year to the pursuit of Manning.

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.

Keenum is also a player the Broncos felt they knew well given the team's senior personnel adviser and former coach Gary Kubiak coached Keenum for two seasons when Kubiak was the Texans' head coach.

In signing Keenum, the Broncos got their best possible option at quarterback. "When you get opportunities like this, you've got to take advantage of them, so we're going to take advantage of it". While many are quick to write Lynch off as a bust, it should be noted that Lynch was only drafted two years ago and missed most of last season due to a shoulder injury. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".
