Denver Broncos agree to trade sending Case Keenum to D.C.

The teams will also swap 2020 draft picks, with Denver receiving a sixth-rounder and Washington a seventh-rounder, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can not be announced until next week. The Broncos signed Keenum a year ago, guaranteeing him $26 million.

With this reported trade, the Denver Broncos would eat up $3.5 million dollars in dead money, as well as give Keenum his $500K bonus.

As for Case Keenum, he will get another fresh start elsewhere after his one year stint in Denver did not go over so well. Washington believes veteran Alex Smith will miss all of 2019 after he suffered a gruesome leg injury in November, according to an earlier report from NFL Network.

The Ravens reportedly sent Joe Flacco to the Broncos in mid-February. He finished with 3,890 passing yards and 18 touchdowns.

For the Eagles, it provides decent but not great quarterbacks to prepare for twice next season, with Jim Schwartz and company now knowing that they'll face Colt McCoy or Case Keenum. He threw 15 interceptions, tied for the second most in the league. It's not something we wanted to happen.

According to Rapoport, the Redskins will re-do Keenum's contract. He was even better in 2017 - when he led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship. They would like to add a playmaker on offense and have been mentioned as a possible trade destination for Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown. The move immediately ended Keenum's time as the starting.
