In an effort to lift the Denver Broncos back into the playoff conversation and to avoid the dreaded "R" word, the Broncos have gone in all-in on Case Keenum, who is expected to sign with the Broncos when free agency officially opens Wednesday afternoon. The 30-year-old quarterback started 14 games and set career marks in 2017 after playing sparingly for the Texans and Rams during his five prior National Football League seasons.
With Keenum headed to Denver, Cousins' potential destinations are now down to three teams: the Vikings, the Cardinals and the Jets.
Keenum is now 30 years old, and was a mediocre-to-bad quarterback for his entire career, until last season.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - For the second time in the past seven years, the Denver Broncos have roared into free agency to fix a quarterback problem. That doesn't all go on the players. The Broncos also hold the No. 5 pick in the upcoming National Football League draft, and now have the flexibility to trade down with a team desperate for a quarterback (see: Bills) or can still decide to take a young arm to groom for the future.

QB Kirk Cousins says farewell to Washington Redskins
In the last three seasons, Cousins threw for an average of 4,392 yards with a total of 81 touchdowns and 36 interceptions. Cousins, the hottest commodity on the market this offseason, will likely end up being the highest-paid player in the NFL.
The Broncos haven't made the playoffs since their Super Bowl win to close out the 2015 season. "Is it because he had a good team around him?"
Pending free agents: G Joe Berger (made $3.5 million over last 2 seasons), G Jeremiah Sirles (made $690,000 last season; Vikings do not plan to give Sirles restricted free agent qualifying offer), G Nick Easton (made $615,000 last season; RFA this spring).
Keenum started eight games under Kubiak in 2013, completing 54.2 percent of his passes for 1,760 yards with nine touchdown passes against six interceptions.
But the biggest impact of all of this is the multimillion-dollar admission that Lynch has not become what the Broncos hoped he would be.
Maybe Keenum's 2017 season was for real, but Elway shouldn't approach the rest of the offseason with that assumption.
