2. Case Keenum
As stated during the introduction of the article, the Denver Broncos needed to do something at quarterback.
Case Keenum became the answer for the Broncos in free agency.
There were rumblings of the Broncos selecting a quarterback high in the NFL Draft, but that never materialized. In fact, the draft signified a huge vote of confidence to Keenum and his control of the offense.
Keenum became an NFL MVP candidate with the Minnesota Vikings in 2018. We can discount what happened last season, but that’d be downright stupid. Keenum played exceptionally well for nearly an entire season.
Sam Bradford would’ve been the starter in 2017, but yet another injury hit him. Not to mention, Teddy Bridgewater came back to the active roster.
This point may go unnoticed with Broncos Country, but Keenum played at that MVP level during a quarterback conundrum in Minnesota. He is not phased by the thoughts or criticisms of others.
Keenum proved the doubters wrong relying on his playmakers at running back, wide receiver and tight end. He trusted them to make plays as evidenced by the “Minnesota Miracle.”
Keenum delivered more under pressure last season than almost any other quarterback in the league.
If Derek Carr played at an MVP level with Bill Musgrave in Oakland, then Keenum is in a great situation to let his career soar even more.
