Redskins acquire QB Keenum from Broncos

Share

The Redskins will pay the other $3.5 million.

Sure, the fact that Washington is expected to add the ex-Bronco once the new league year starts probably lowers the chance of a Rosen acquisition somewhat.

The writing was on the wall when the Denver Broncos worked on a trade for Joe Flacco. The trade will involve the Broncos seventh round pick in 2020 and the Redskins' sixth round draft pick in 2020. As part of a reworked contract, the Redskins and Broncos will reportedly each pay him $3.5 million and he'll earn a $500,000 bonus, a source told Mike Klis of 9News. He signed a two-year contract with Denver after a miracle run with the Minnesota Vikings in 2017.

While compiling a career-high 3,890 passes, Keenum completed just 62.3 percent of his passes to go with 18 touchdowns, 15 interceptions, and a passer rating of 81.2. He was paid $18 million guaranteed last season and only had $7 million guaranteed for 2019. Flacco, 34, is a former Super Bowl MVP, but he was replaced in Baltimore by rookie Lamar Jackson halfway through last season. The trade will also not be official until next week.

Acquiring a veteran quarterback to provide depth for and competition to Colt McCoy was issue No. 1 for the Redskins this offseason. 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. But he latched onto the Houston Texans and eventually had success there, starting 10 games.
