Broncos free agent quarterbacks to consider as backups in 2020
Case Keenum, Washington Redskins
How about a second round of Case?
Keenum was not happy with being traded by the Broncos after just one year as the starting quarterback, so there might be too much bad blood here to have him come back when he could sign with any other team looking for a steady backup QB option.
I bring up Keenum for a couple of reasons.
First and foremost, he has proven he can take the helm of a playoff-caliber team (the Broncos have not proven they are this yet) and actually lead them pretty far. We know what Keenum is skill-wise, and I don’t think he’s a full-time starter in the NFL but he can get the job done when called upon if it’s for shorter stretches.
Keenum’s best year in the NFL came under Pat Shurmur in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings. Perhaps if the Broncos wanted Keenum to be their backup, Shurmur could convince him to come back and they could bury the hatchet.
