Denver Broncos: Five Trade Destinations for Case Keenum
Denver will reportedly be shopping Case Keenum after agreeing in principle to a trade with Baltimore for Joe Flacco. Here are some possible destinations.
Usually the month after the Super Bowl leading up to the final days of NFL free agency is a quiet time. John Elway and the Denver Broncos decided to wake up the NFL and agreed in principle to a trade with the Baltimore Ravens that will send Joe Flacco to Denver. So, what does this mean for Case Keenum?
Turns out he is most likely out of the Mile High City. According to Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos will begin shopping Case Keenum. This way, they take less dead money. However, Rapoport also says that if Denver cannot find a suitable trade partner, that they will ask him to take a massive pay cut or release him outright.
If we are being honest, the 2019 offseason is going to be so critical for teams looking for a quarterback. Even a backup quarterback would help some of the teams that could be looking at quarterback in this year’s NFL Draft.
In my opinion, I find it shocking that the Broncos are willing to give up on Case Keenum after one year. Horrible coaching and a slew of injuries were the main reason behind Denver’s 6-10 finish in 2018.
That does not mean I am completely defending Keenum. There were plenty of moments where he struggled. But I would have thought they would give him one more year to prove himself.
Whatever the reason may be, Case Keenum might be going to another team in 2019. Let’s explore some options on where he could land.
