In a developing trade, Case Keenum of the Denver Broncos has been traded to the Washington Redskins, according to NFL insider Ian Rapaport.
Case Keenum broke out in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings before signing with Denver in free agency last offseason for 2 years, $36M. According to reports, the contract will be adjusted, so the amount of money Washington is taking on this upcoming season isn’t yet known. Denver received a sixth round pick and Washington a 7th rounder.
Keenum, a journeyman, had a year where he fell back down to earth (98 QBR in 2017 to 82 in 2018. 2017: 22 TD, 7 interceptions. 2018: 18 TD, 15 interceptions). He was, however, still above his career averages in every statistical category and set a career high in yards (3,890). He will compete with Colt McCoy for the starting QB role.
For Denver, they’ve unloaded Keenum and presumably opened up a spot for veteran, Super Bowl winning quarterback Joe Flacco. The Ravens reportedly agreed in principle to trade him to Denver shortly after the Super Bowl.

Washington receives: QB Case Keenum. Broncos 7th round 2020 draft pick. Keenum gets 3.5 of his $7M guarantee from both sides.
