Broncos expected to sign free agent quarterback Case Keenum

Cousins also has thrown at least 25 touchdown passes in each of the past three seasons while Keenum had 22 last season and a total of 46 in six total seasons (41 games played).

Kirk Cousins isn't the only name dominating National Football League headlines on Tuesday and although the Denver Broncos look to have missed out in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes-despite reports to the effect they weren't 100 percent committed in the free agent signal-caller-it doesn't mean they'll remain quiet.

Minnesota is the current favorite to sign Cousins, per Schefter.

So is quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota's starter in 2014 and 2015 but limited to just one game since suffering a torn ACL in the final preseason practice of 2016. Taking over as the Vikings' signal caller from the (always) injured Sam Bradford, he led the men in purple to a sterling 11-3 mark.

The 30-year-old Keenum has had stints with the Texans, Rams and Vikings, who reached the NFC Championship Game last season.

They reportedly planned to make a hard push for Cousins, but the ex-Washington Redskins QB likely will choose between the Vikings, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals.

The Denver Broncos are signing a new quarterback.

His last-second throw to Stefon Diggs stunned the Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.

PNB fraud fallout: RBI scraps Letters of Undertaking system
Last month, Nirav Modi commented saying, that PNB had closed all doors of recovering dues for his brand by going public. According to the CBI statement, the investigation in the case is suffering from manpower crunch.

The biggest question now for the Broncos is how the team plans to use with the No. 5 pick in the draft now that Keenum is in the fold.

"I still think we're not too far away".

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

"There were some things we should have done differently that we didn't do". The Broncos have missed the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, and at the moment, linebacker Von Miller is the only former Broncos draft pick on the roster who has been named to a Pro Bowl.

Kubiak has an increased role in the Broncos' personnel evaluations this year and has been a major voice as Denver prepares for free agency and the draft. "But I feel like we can get right back in the thick of things pretty quickly".

With Keenum on board, the Broncos are expected to keep Paxton Lynch as their backup quarterback and possibly trade Trevor Siemian.

That doesn't appeal to me for a team that constantly preaches it will not rebuild.
