Washington Redskins acquire another quarterback from Denver Broncos

Washington Redskins acquire another quarterback from Denver Broncos

Washington reportedly will acquire quarterback Case Keenum, along with a seventh-round pick, from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a sixth-round pick, according to multiple reports.

Keenum served as Denver's starter last year after signing a two-year, $36 million deal during the 2018 offseason.

The Denver Broncos run an offensive play against the Cincinnati Bengals in a general view as the sun sets at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on November 19, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. He'll replace Keenum under center in Denver.

Keenum was originally due $18 million for the 2019 season.

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.

The writing was on the wall when the Denver Broncos worked on a trade for Joe Flacco.

"Elway called me that morning and we had a great conversation, which he didn't have to do, and I appreciated that", Keenum said according to ESPN. In 14 starts, he threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Keep in mind the Redskins could also look to the draft for more competition at the position, too. 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 NFL Network first reported that the teams were working on a trade. By trading for a quarterback who has started 54 games in his career, the Redskins get a one-year rental at a bargain price, freeing them to take a quarterback in next month's draft who can be developed while Keenum and McCoy start.
