The Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins have agreed on a trade that will send Case Keenum to the Nation’s Capital. This could be huge for free agency.
The writing was on the wall when the Denver Broncos worked on a trade for Joe Flacco. Now it appears that the quarterback that Denver paid for last offseason will be playing for his third team in as many years.
Reports have surfaced that the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins have agreed on a trade that will send Case Keenum to the Nation’s Capital. The trade will involve the Broncos seventh round pick in 2020 and the Redskins’ sixth round draft pick in 2020.
It would be a big fit for the NFC East team, with Alex Smith’s future still in doubt after that gruesome leg injury he suffered late last season. Prayers to Alex Smith.
With this reported trade, the Denver Broncos would eat up $3.5 million dollars in dead money, as well as give Keenum his $500K bonus. But they would get $18 million of it back. This would be a huge, not to mention smart, move by John Elway. Not to mention it could change the tide of free agency for the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos could get around $41.5 million dollars in cap space, which would allow them to really get the ball rolling when it comes to signing free agents.
As for Case Keenum, he will get another fresh start elsewhere after his one year stint in Denver did not go over so well. He recorded a 6-10 record with 3,890 yards passing, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
The numbers were not too bad, but they were not enough to stick around for one more year. It is a shame that Case Keenum could not stick around, but I wish him the best of luck in Washington D.C.
