Denver Broncos: In Free Agent QB race, losing may be winning

Denver Broncos: In Free Agent QB race, losing may be winning

With an National Football League loving nation following the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, teams like the Buffalo Bills are starting to turn their eyes toward more affordable options like Sam Bradford. Keenum threw for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns in leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship game.

There was a possibility that Keenum could have returned to the Vikings in 2018, but the team did not want to give him the kind of money (more than $20 million per year) that some had been estimating he could get in the open market.

It was in Minnesota where he immerged as a number one quarterback.

At the scouting combine, two weeks before the start of free agency, Elway did compare the "fluid" nature of chasing a quarterback in free agency this year to the pursuit of Manning. Elway should attack the draft with the thinking that Keenum is a fine bridge quarterback, but quarterback should absolutely still be in play for the Broncos with the No. 5 overall pick.

Elway insists the Broncos can get right back into the playoff picture with the right quarterback and tweaks to other areas of the roster.

The Broncos had a glaring hole under center last season, cycling through Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler en route to an unexpected 5-11 record and last-place finish in the AFC West.

The Broncos ultimately decided not to make Cousins an offer on Monday, a team source said.

"I still think we're not too far away". Keenum played for Kubiak with the Houston Texans, and starred in college at the University of Houston, where he once posted a nine touchdown game. There were some things that we should have done that we should have done differently that we didn't do. The 30-year-old quarterback started 14 games and set career marks in 2017 after playing sparingly for the Texans and Rams during his five prior National Football League seasons.

For Keenum, he will now face a pile of expectations in a quarterback-crazed region that saw its team win a Super Bowl just two seasons ago.

The Vikings went 11-3 in games started by Keenum during the regular season on their way to a first-round playoff bye.
