Case Keenum #7 of the Minnesota Vikings reacts after a failed fourth down attempt in the fourth quarter of the game against the Detroit Lions on October 1, 2017 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Case Keenum contract expected to be short term. It's believed the Broncos didn't like fully guaranteeing the third year, or that they wouldn't have Cousins under their control for more than three years. Pat Shurmur, Keenum's offensive coordinator in Minnesota a year ago, was finally able to put a practical spin on an offense that accentuated Keenum's best attributes. He provides an upgrade and flexibility to make other moves. Unfortunately, it's not the one Broncos players, most notably Von Miller, have been working hard to recruit all offseason in Kirk Cousins. I hate to brag, but it does appear that my preferred quarterback, Sam Bradford, was the TYPE of quarterback the Vikings want (ed).

Keenum, of course, comes off a season which saw him complete 67.6 percent of his passes with 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns.

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. The importance of ball security can not be overstated after the Broncos' quarterbacks fired 22 picks last season. Aside from a passable six-game spell with St. Louis in 2015, there's nothing to suggest he's capable of repeating 2017. And yet, understandable trepidation remains: Is he a one-hit wonder?

They have not had consecutive losing seasons since 1971 and 1972. Keenum draws praise for his leadership.

Keenum's arrival means Paxton Lynch is expected to return as a backup with competition from Chad Kelly and a potential draft choice - that has not been ruled out - as Denver plans on trading Trevor Siemian. Now, Elway hopes another free agent will replicate Manning.
