National Football League free agent rumors: QB Case Keenum to sign with Broncos

National Football League free agent rumors: QB Case Keenum to sign with Broncos

In 2012, it was Peyton Manning.

Case Keenum is headed to the Rocky Mountains.

The news is expected to be confirmed later on Tuesday and rubber stamped when Free Agency opens at 9pm (GMT) on Wednesday.

In the process, Keenum won 10 games for the first time in his career at 29 years old.

The Broncos were thought to make a serious push for former Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Vikings are considered the favorite for Cousins with the New York Jets and Arizona also in the mix.

The knock-on effect of Keenum's move could see last season's Denver starter Trevor Siemian traded or released while the likes of Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater are the other two names who could leave the Vikings and assess their options elsewhere.

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.

Trump considering Perry for veterans affairs secretary
The current VA secretary, David Shulkin , is under fire for taking a taxpayer-funded trip to Europe past year . Trump did not make a formal offer to Perry when the two men met on Monday, the report said.

After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller.

It didn't look like Keenum would become much more than a journeyman backup after stints with the St. Louis Rams, back to Houston, then to the Los Angeles Rams, before landing in Minnesota last season.

The Broncos had three quarterbacks start games this past season - Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler - but it was a bumpy ride on offense, as the Broncos were among the league leaders in turnovers and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was sacked in November. His name is Demaryius Thomas. Manning guided the Broncos to two Super Bowls and won the 2015 National Football League championship.

They have not had consecutive losing seasons since 1971 and 1972.

Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing".

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said earlier in the offseason. However, that wasn't good enough for him to get drafted.
