Redskins and Broncos completing trade for Case Keenum

	The Broncos have a deal in place to trade Case Keenum
	By		Henry Chisholm

The trade will involve the Broncos seventh round pick in 2020 and the Redskins' sixth round draft pick in 2020.

After the Broncos landed Joe Flacco in a trade last month, Keenum was put on the trading block, and it appears he's close to heading to the nation's capital, according to multiple reports. Like the Keenum trade, the Flacco trade can not become official until the start of the league year.March 13.

The Broncos finished with a 6-10 record this past season, while the Redskins finished at 7-9.

It would be a big fit for the NFC East team, with Alex Smith's future still in doubt after that gruesome leg injury he suffered late last season.

Keenum's addition in Washington means that he will compete with Colt McCoy to be the team's starting QB. As a team, the Redskins would be better off going with McCoy, who was knocked out for the season past year, after he went down with a leg injury in the second quarter of the team's 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. But there's reason to believe that this move for Keenum is not the full extent of Washington's plans at quarterback in the offseason of 2019.

Broncos general manager John Elway hoped he'd finally found a worthy successor to Peyton Manning after failures by Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch. But Keenum is an experienced quarterback who has had success before.

During his one season in Denver, Keenum completed 62.3 percent of his passes with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, in 16 games.

When the news first broke that Flacco was coming to Denver, Keenum commented on the situation saying that he was pretty surprised by the news.

Washington will be getting Keenum at a discount. On Dec. 5, Emmanuel Sanders, who rose to No. 1 receiving threat when Demaryius Thomas was traded to Houston, tore an Achilles at practice. "I learned what it is to be a franchise quarterback".
