3 years $86MM fully guaranteed
Keenum might be a long term solution but he might not be. I view this deal as a prove it deal. If he plays the next 2 years at the same level as last year he might be the solution. Kurt Warner wasn't considered a savior either until he got a shot.
I see it that Keenum was the second best option on the market. If Denver was out of the Cousins sweepstakes then why not take the next best guy? Maybe those down on Keenum have a different 2nd best QB on the free agent market. That would be fair.
I am a little worried that this is Gary getting his guy as he coached him in Houston at the beginning of Keenum's career. I am also worried that Keenum was a one year wonder. Only time will tell, but the money for Keenum is not horrendous for a starting QB.
Yeah, probably not going QB at 5.
Keenum had 10 games last year where he didn't turn the ball over, I don't think we even had 1, so he's an upgrade just on that alone.
I have spent the morning watching different sports shows and some are down on Keenum and some are very positive.
Some say he takes a lot of chances with the ball and doesn't have a strong are to take those chances.
Other say he is not a 1 year wonder as he actually performed pretty well on a really bad Rams team in 2016. He won 4 games as the starting QB.
I am personally taking a wait and see approach with him, but I do think in free agent he was one of the better options behind Cousins. I don't know that Cousins is worth the 10 million a year difference frankly. We will see if both Keenum and Cousins will be on the field in 2019 when the Broncos travel to Minnesota. Could be an interesting game depending on what all occurs between now and then. Ironically the Vikings and Redskins will play that year too.
Really he is a wait and see approach type QB, but again I strongly do feel it's at least better then the trash we had last year.
The bootleg and the reverse boot are coming back with Case K.
The final 4 QBs thsi year were Keenum, Foles, Bortles, and Jesus. I think with a good defense and improved OL Denver can be fine
Keenum played with a great defense in Minnesota. We all know that. He had 3 very good ball catchers. He also played with an offensive line that Pro Football Focus ranked as the 22nd best line last season. The Broncos had the 23rd best.
Don't sleep on us using our 2nd rounder to move up for Mason Rudolph...
I agree. Drafting a QB would be a poor move for the Broncos. Lynch has only started 4 games and Kelly has potential. I'm not that impressed with any of the QB's in this years draft. Last thing the Broncos need is another young QB to choose from.
Speak for yourself.
Any chance we trade back with Buffalo and turn #5 in 2 first round picks this year. Then we would not have to trade back up. Let's say we get 12 and 22 for 5.
Buffalo by trading to twelve, looks to be serious in moving closer to top to get a Qb and Denver could very well be the landing spot. If it worked out ,Denver could land top 3 OL and either DL/LB or Wr in rd 1 and like DC said earlier, go after Rudolph. Be nice scenario anyway
I was thinking today. It’s funny how one thing can change a lot of things. If Bridgewater stays healthy, Bridgewater probably gets a big contract to stay in Minnesota. Cousins might be a Bronco and Case Keenum might still be hiding as a backup QB. Or if Bradford had stayed healthy while in Minnesota. Everything happens for a reason I guess. (well not everything) but maybe the reason was to get Keenum where he belongs.
I hope your right
I am more comforta la with Keenum now then I was when it was first announced.
I am more comfortable with our QB situation now then I was all of last season.
Denver better do something to the OL, their OL is nowhere close to Minny's.
Keenum got almost 30 mill per season?
