​The ​Denver Broncos were working on terms for a deal with the ​Redskins that would ​send Case Keenum to Washington


The sides have reportedly reached an agreement for the 31-year-old quarterback, and it's a surprisingly small haul for Denver. The Broncos will send Keenum and a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Skins in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick. 

As part of the deal, Keenum also agreed to restructure his contract down to $7 million. The Broncos will pay $3.5 million of his new deal, as well as the $500,000 bonus Keenum earned by restructuring his deal. 


At first glance this appears to be a steal for the Redskins, as they get a starting-caliber QB for little-to-no cost. Not only have they brought forth a reasonable solution to their quarterback crisis, but the Redskins will only be paying Keenum $3.5 million out of their own pocket. 

While the Redskins are confident in the ability of ​backup quarterback Colt McCoy, they will bring Keenum aboard and hold a quarterback competition during offseason camp. 


Even if Keenum doesn't start for Washington, his $3.5 million salary is a steal for a veteran quarterback with postseason experience.
