There is no doubt that Case Keenum is having a roller coaster year. His failures could fall on the coaching staff and maybe turning a new leaf will help.
The Denver Broncos brought in Case Keenum to help with the quarterback situation. The team was in shambles with the retirement of Peyton Manning and the departure of Brock Osweiler. Trevor Siemian was solid for a bit, but never became the answer.
Brock Osweiler’s second stint did not go over well. And Paxton Lynch, well yeah, about that one. It has frustrated Broncos Country that an answer at quarterback has not been figured out. And if the plan is to get rid of Case Keenum, might want to re-think that.
While the Broncos do have an opt-out in his contract for the upcoming offseason, he will cost the team $10 million to release him. That money can go a long way and I doubt John Elway wants to think about eating that much. And there are not many options in free agency or the draft with quarterbacks in 2019.
It is almost a given that the Broncos will have a new coaching staff in 2019. Perhaps this in turn could benefit Case Keenum and provide with better production. If there is not a chance that the Broncos can eat up his contract, they might as well see if they can get another year that will hopefully be positive.
I honestly do not believe Vance Joseph and Bill Musgrave are a good fit for Keenum. This is especially true since Joseph is a defensive minded coach. Perhaps it is time for the Broncos to bring in an offensive minded coach. One that can get a lot out of the offense as it stands. Having something similar to a Zimmer/Shurmur combination will be helpful to Keenum.
Having someone who could unlock Case Keenum’s Minnesota potential can go a long way in the Denver Broncos be a piece or two away from becoming playoff contenders again.
