Former UH QB Case Keenum agrees to deal with Broncos

The Broncos have found their quarterback.

A number of media suggest free-agent quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency officially begins at 2 p.m. MT on Wednesday.

ESPN first reported the impending deal.

Kirk Cousins, who spent his first six National Football League seasons with the Washington Redskins, is the top free-agent quarterback available (not counting Drew Brees, who is expected to remain in New Orleans).

He played for coaches Vance Joseph and Gary Kubiak in Houston at the beginning of his career (2012-13) and already has a feel for the staff and offensive system. Cousins would now appear to be the favorite to replace Keenum in Minnesota. And he comes at a cost that affords the Broncos more flexibility in reshaping their roster and adding to it in the upcoming draft.

The Vikings were also rumored Monday to be gauging Drew Brees' interest in leaving the Saints, although an unconfirmed report Monday said Brees and the Saints had agreed on a two-year, $48 million contract.

"We all understand how the quarterback position has a direct influence on how your team plays", Joseph said in February.

And while the Broncos do need a new quarterback, is Keenum the answer? We just have to figure out a way to get it right.

We may have seen the last of Case Keenum in a Vikings uniform. No offer was extended to Cousins. "When you get opportunities like this, you've got to take advantage of them, so we're going to take advantage of it".

Davis is considered a two-down linebacker - strong against the run - while Nelson had mostly filled a third-down role - a speed player who excelled in pass coverage. 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.
