Did the Broncos land the right quarterback? The numbers tell a story

Report Both Broncos and Cardinals interested in Case Keenum

Report Both Broncos and Cardinals interested in Case Keenum

Using ESPN's advanced Total QBR formula, Keenum ranked at 69.7 past year.

For the second time in the past seven years, the Denver Broncos have roared into free agency to fix a quarterback problem.

Stefon Diggs of the Minnesota Vikings leaps to catch the ball thrown by Case Keenum in the fourth quarter of the NFC Divisional Playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on January 14, 2018 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Although often maligned by the talking heads on TV, Keenum's two seasons as the part-time starter for a really bad St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams team were better than advertised.

The knock-on effect of Keenum's move could see last season's Denver starter Trevor Siemian traded or released while the likes of Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater are the other two names who could leave the Vikings and assess their options elsewhere.

Throughout the off-season, many fans expected the Broncos to target Washington Redskins free-agent hurler Kirk Cousins. In the playoffs, he completed a miracle pass to receiver Taye Diggs to push Minnesota past the New Orleans Saints and into the National Football League title game, where they were annihilated by the future Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles 38-7.

The 30-year-old Keenum is considered the second-best QB available on the open market. We didn't play well there a year ago.

I do like that it's 15 minutes away rather than the 1,500-mile trek I'd have to make to say thanks. However, that wasn't good enough for him to get drafted.

Kubiak has an increased role in the Broncos' personnel evaluations this year and has been a major voice as Denver prepares for free agency and the draft. There were some things that we should have done, that we should have done differently that we didn't do.

So what do the Broncos have in Keenum.

The Broncos had three quarterbacks start games this past season - Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler - but it was a bumpy ride on offense, as the Broncos were among the league leaders in turnovers and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was sacked in November. This figure and the term of the contract - unlike with Cousins - should not preclude the Broncos from drafting a quarterback fifth overall if they choose to go in that direction.
