Case Keenum’s 2017 season for the Minnesota Vikings will go down as nothing short of miraculous, but he will not have a follow up act in Minnesota, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who is reporting that Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency officially begins on March 14.
When free agency opens Wednesday, former Vikings’ QB Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos, sources tell ESPN.
First QB domino has fallen.
QB race is on.

As the Vikings are reportedly chasing after free agent QBs Drew Brees and Kirk Cousins – with Teddy Bridgewater as a reported fallback option – the QB who led them to a 13-3 season, a playoff win and posted a QB rating in the top 10 in the league will be walking out of the door.
The Broncos did not appear to be a serious contender for Cousins and lacked the salary cap space to sign him without a number of other moves.
