Where will the Denver Broncos’ top free agents land in the 2019 offseason? There will be a mass exodus out of Denver, in all likelihood.
The Denver Broncos have a number of players set to hit unrestricted free agency in March.
Where might those players land? That’s what we’re going to explore here today with just under a month until the free agent signing frenzy begins.
For this project, we’ve included Case Keenum as he is not expected back with the Broncos, though he’s not currently an unrestricted free agent. We won’t speculate on all possible cap casualties, but Keenum is likely not going to be in Denver much longer.
Starting with Keenum, let’s try and predict where each of the Broncos’ prominent unrestricted free agents will wind up signing in March.
Case Keenum, QB
Best fits: Arizona Cardinals, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles
Prediction: Minnesota Vikings
The Arizona Cardinals and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury know Keenum very well from his college days in Houston.
That relationship — along with the Cardinals’ need for a relatively inexpensive veteran backup to Josh Rosen — paves the way for this move to happen.
The Eagles could also be in the market for a backup quarterback with Nick Foles likely heading South (hello, Jacksonville).
A reunion with the Vikings could also make sense for Keenum as he is going to be able to sign there for the veteran minimum, knows quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski, and is beloved by Gary Kubiak, who now essentially oversees that offense.
Those factors are why I’m predicting the Vikings as the ultimate destination again for Keenum, signing a one-year deal for the league minimum while getting paid about $9.07 million from the Broncos.
