Case Keenum trade details: Redskins acquire QB for pick, half salary

May JohnsonMar 09, 2019

Reports have surfaced that the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins have agreed on a trade that will send Case Keenum to the Nation's Capital.

Trades cannot be announced officially until the new league year starts on March 13 but Washington will want to complete a deal before teams can begin talking to other teams' free agents on Monday.

Last season, his first full-season as a starter, Keenum guided the Denver Broncos to a 6-and-10 record.

Keenum has a base salary of $18 million this season, but only $7 million was guaranteed in the way of offsets, which the Redskins and Broncos made a decision to split evenly, sources said. Washington paid big money to Alex Smith previous year, but he suffered a gruesome leg injury, and he isn't expected to return in 2019.

Jeremy Corbyn's amendment rejected — BREXIT VOTE
MPs later rejected a Scottish National Party amendment to rule out a no-deal Brexit in any circumstances and at any time by a margin of 288-324.

Keenum became expendable once the Broncos acquired Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens. He finished with 3,890 passing yards and 18 touchdowns.

Keenum and veteran Colt McCoy are under contract for only next season - meaning Washington will most likely have to address the quarterback position again this offseason or in 2020 unless Smith makes a miraculous recovery from a broken leg. "But we'll be ready for whatever God has in store for us next". 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.

First reported by Ian Rapoport, Denver's Mike Klis came through with the brushstrokes of the deal. Though John Elway indicated he wanted Keenum to stay with the team, trading him is a move you can't argue with. He also earns a $500,000 restructure bonus from Denver in the deal.
