The Broncos had three quarterbacks start games this past season - Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler - but it was a bumpy ride on offense as the Broncos were among the league leaders in turnovers and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was sacked in November.
MINNEAPOLIS, MN - NOVEMBER 19: Case Keenum #7 of the Minnesota Vikings drops back to pass the ball in the first quarter of the game against the Los Angeles Rams on November 19, 2017 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
A breakdown of the Denver Broncos' 2018 free-agent signings. A year ago in Minnesota, Keenum started 14 games (11-3 record) and compiled a 98.3 passer rating.
According to 9News Denver, Keenum's deal is expected to be a short-term agreement, suggesting it won't preclude the Broncos from taking a quarterback with the fifth overall pick in next month's draft if they so choose. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position".
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. He started 15 games for the Vikings in 2016, completing 71.6-percent of his passes for 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Elway said in recent weeks he still believed the team could get back into the postseason mix with an upgrade behind center. We didn't play well there previous year.
