Broncos try to deal Keenum to Redskins

The Redskins have acquired quarterback Case Keenum in a trade with the Denver Broncos, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan confirms. Denver will receive a sixth-round pick in the deal, the report says.

Keenum hit the free agent market after a successful 2017 campaign with the Minnesota Vikings.

After the Vikings signed Cousins, Keenum signed a two-year, $36 million deal with Denver that included $25 million in guarantees.

The Case Keenum era is nearly officially over in Denver. He'll replace Keenum under center in Denver. The Broncos will pay a $500,000 restructure bonus, as well as half of his new $7 million 2019 salary.

It would be a big fit for the NFC East team, with Alex Smith's future still in doubt after that gruesome leg injury he suffered late last season.

UFC 235: Jones vs Smith draws huge $4 million-plus gate
I like this fight as it should allow for Garbrandt to pick up a much-needed win but it is certainly not a foregone conclusion. The next opponent for Jones is the veteran fighter Anthony Smith who will be vying for his title in UFC 235 .

Denver, of course, found a replacement for Keenum when they traded for Joe Flacco last month. He finished with 3,890 passing yards and 18 touchdowns.

The Redskins get an affordable starting option here, though Keenum will presumably have to compete with Colt McCoy for the starting job. "There's still a lot up in the air; this is very fresh".

General manager John Elway indicated at the National Football League combine last week that he would consider Keenum returning as a backup, but only if there was "a contract adjustment".

The Redskins could still look for another quarterback in the middle rounds of the draft. 9News in Denver's Mike Klis reports details of the trade. They would like to add a playmaker on offense and have been mentioned as a possible trade destination for Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown.

Case Keenum is on the move again.
