The Broncos have a deal in place to trade Case Keenum

The Redskins appear to be on the verge of acquiring Denver quarterback Case Keenum

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

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

The Washington Redskins agreed Thursday to acquire Case Keenum from the Denver Broncos in a trade, a person with knowledge of the talks told USA TODAY Sports.

Case Keenum is on his way out of Denver nearly a year removed from signing a two-year deal with the Broncos. The Broncos will pay a $500,000 restructure bonus, as well as half of his new $7 million 2019 salary. Washington believes veteran Alex Smith will miss all of 2019 after he suffered a gruesome leg injury in November, according to an earlier report from NFL Network. That was obviously going to happen once Joe Flacco was acquired from the Ravens. He finished with 3,890 passing yards and 18 touchdowns.

"We don't know what's going to happen", Keenum said February 21 about his future. I don't for sure; God does.

Keenum starred for the Minnesota Vikings in 2017, helping them reach the NFC Championship Game.

General manager John Elway indicated at the National Football League combine last week that he would consider Keenum returning as a backup, but only if there was "a contract adjustment". Keep in mind the Redskins could also look to the draft for more competition at the position, too. 9News in Denver's Mike Klis reports details of the trade. "And not to mention, right now they can not get a deal that they want". Although the deal won't become official until next week, it showed the team was ready to move on from Case Keenum.
