Demaryius Thomas revealed that Case Keenum and Emmanuel Sanders will head up a passing camp in Houston after Denver Broncos OTAs…
Ever since Peyton Manning brought up the famous Duke workouts where he would bring a select number of teammates out to North Carolina to get some extra work in, everyone wants to know how the next quarterback is going to follow suit.
Would Trevor Siemian organize passing camps? What about Paxton Lynch?
Case Keenum seems to have the type of clout behind an invitation and according to Demaryius Thomas, there’s going to be a big gathering of Denver Broncos players in Houston, where Keenum is from, after OTAs.
"“We’ll be able to work with each other. After OTAs are over with, I’m going to go to Houston and we’re going to work together. So that’s big for us…It’s going to be the receivers, quarterbacks, and hopefully, we can get some tight ends and running backs as well. Case and Emmanuel [Sanders] are out in Houston so we’re trying to figure out where we’re going to throw this summer.”Demaryius Thomas (quotes via Broncos PR)"

The Broncos have given Keenum the opportunity to take the reins of their offense, and he is apparently taking full advantage.
Obviously, the team is working on another set of OTAs right now, but for Thomas to say this means that the plans are already in the works to do additional throwing in Houston.
The idea of almost the entire offense showing up to this type of thing is very exciting, and it will be interesting to see which players opt to come, and which ones will be too ‘busy’.
If Keenum, Thomas, and Sanders are leading the way, it would really be a shame for young players to miss out.
The chance to learn from veterans and get additional work in when the NFL rules prevent teams from organizing this type of thing is something these players can’t pass up on.
The Broncos have hopes to contend again this season, and Keenum’s leadership is going to be a key factor if they are to do so.
