The trade will involve the Broncos seventh round pick in 2020 and the Redskins' sixth round draft pick in 2020. The Redskins, meanwhile, will pay only $3.5 million for a guy who could end up being their starter (Keenum was originally due $18 million in salary for 2019).
Klis reports that the Broncos will pay Keenum a $500,000 restructure bonus in addition to $3.5 million of his salary. Though John Elway indicated he wanted Keenum to stay with the team, trading him is a move you can't argue with. He says Denver is getting Washington's 6th-round pick in 2020, while Washington gets Denver's 7th-round pick in 2020. Denver will send quarterback Case Keenum to Washington.
Denver, of course, found a replacement for Keenum when they traded for Joe Flacco last month. The 31 year-old threw 18 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions to go with his completion percentage of 62.3%. The trade will also not be official until next week.
At what point should LeBron James shut it down?
James, 34, said there had been no discussion about his playing a reduced role but admitted it might be a possibility in future. This season, when the Lakers have received 50% or more of bets, they have gone 16-29-1 (35.6%) ATS.
The Washington Redskins will have another quarterback in camp to compete with Colt McCoy this season. Washington brought in Alex Smith last offseason, but Smith broke his leg halfway through the season after posting similar numbers to Keenum's. Smith isn't expected to play next season after he suffered a broken tibia and fibula in November.
The Redskins are Keenum's fifth NFL team since he entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Houston.
Case Keenum had a career-year in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings - taking advantage of a talented supporting cast en route to a career-high 98.3 quarterback rating (22 touchdowns, seven interceptions). They opted to not tender LB Jerrol Garcia-Williams.
