Keenum: From Minnesota Backup To Starter To New Denver QB


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - For the second time in the past seven years, the Denver Broncos have roared into free agency to fix a quarterback problem.

Players can not sign free agent contracts until the new league year opens at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

However, with the Vikings one of the major contenders for Kirk Cousins' signature, Keenum has been looking to cash in on his status of last year's stellar campaign and the Broncos look to be his landing spot.

Six years ago, GM John Elway landed Peyton Manning, the biggest free-agent prize in National Football League history, following his release by the Colts and a series of neck fusion surgeries.

Out of those three teams, the Jets have the most cap space available, but the Vikings offer Cousins the best supporting cast to immediately compete for a Super Bowl. His only two injured years came during his rookie and sophomore seasons back in 2010 and 2011 (10 and 11 games, respectively).

Manning had a spectacular closing chapter in Denver, leading the Broncos to the playoffs in all four of his seasons, reaching two Super Bowls and winning one.

Former Broncos coach and current front office consultant Gary Kubiak coached Keenum when he was with the Texans. Misses don't bother me.

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.

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said earlier in the offseason.

He also threw a touchdown on the last play of the game to Stefon Diggs to stun the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs. However, that wasn't good enough for him to get drafted. There were some things that we should have done, that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
