The Denver Broncos wide outs have dealt with the rotating quarterback carousel the last two seasons. Now Sanders enjoys what Case Keenum brings to the team.

Ever since the retirement of Peyton Manning, the Denver Broncos have done what they could to find the quarterback that can bring the team back to the promise land. While Case Keenum could be there to heal the wounds for now, there is no doubting that he is an upgrade over what Denver had the last two seasons.

Sure, Trevor Siemian gave it his best. And not all the blame can be squared up on him. But it was clear that the Broncos needed a new quarterback to turn things around. Brock Osweiler wasn’t going to do it. And Paxton Lynch just seemed off.

Emmanuel Sanders did not like the idea of the quarterback carousel the past two seasons. “When you are going into individual routes, you have to go to one guy and then go to the next guy. You don’t really gain that chemistry. You are not maximizing opportunity.”

Sanders has shown plenty of confidence in Case Keenum. During OTA’s, the chemistry has been there. Sanders pointing out that Keenum has been on target with the majority of his passes.

Emmanuel Sanders even discussed the changes that he has seen around Broncos Country.

“I remember when I got out here, I went to the team store and saw Case Keenum jerseys. I was like, “Thank God I don’t have to deal with that again.”

The Denver Broncos got a good guy in Case Keenum. I have complete faith that he will be able to build off a successful 2017 season and do well in the Mile High City. We will not know for sure until the season is underway. But to have a receiver confident in you goes a long way to long term success.
