Case Keenum expected to sign with Broncos

With Cousins, who would've been the best non-Tom Brady QB in the division since a 38-year-old Brett Favre, the Jets could've been equipped for a wild card run.

Keenum threw for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns in a career year that ended one game shy of a Super Bowl last year.

The Vikings, who were subsequently blown out at Philadelphia in the conference championship, chose to let all three of their QBs - Keenum, Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater - test free agency.

If New York doesn't land Cousins, former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater becomes a free agent priority at the position. The Vikings have been targeting Cousins for weeks and did not make much of an effort to retain Keenum.

All three quarterbacks were draft picks by Elway, the Hall of Fame quarterback who has only had success at quarterback in free agency. In 2015, his first season as the primary starter, Cousins led the league in completion percentage and with 29 touchdown passes.

She then added, jokingly: "And for more breaking news: I am NOW retiring from being Cameron Diaz's spokesperson". And I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything.

With Keenum on board, the Broncos are expected to keep Paxton Lynch as their backup quarterback and possibly trade Trevor Siemian. Now a senior personnel advisor in Denver's front office, Kubiak coached Keenum with the Houston Texans from 2012-13 after the Texans signed the former Houston Cougars star as an undrafted free agent.

That included choosing among the draft prospects that include Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and others. We just have to figure out a way to get it right. It seems like the obvious choice to take Cousins over Keenum, but where does the latter rank now?

While the Broncos are in transition, including on defense following the trade of cornerback Aqib Talib to the Los Angeles Rams last week, Elway doesn't want to rebuild, and finding a capable starting quarterback is the biggest piece - especially when the rest of the division is settled at the position. I do like that it's 15 minutes away rather than the 1,500-mile trek I'd have to make to say thanks.

At this juncture, with the Broncos out of the wild west that is the quarterback hunt, NY is in a far better position to find their quarterback of the future than it was at the beginning of the legal tampering period on Monday.
