Gary Kubiak played big role in Broncos' landing Case Keenum

After repeatedly swinging for fences at QB, Elway's Broncos wisely shorten up for Case Keenum

Gary Kubiak played big role in Broncos' landing Case Keenum

Kubiak, who now serves as the team's senior personnel adviser, was a big reason why the team chose to agree to terms with free agent quarterback Case Keenum, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports. He finished the season with 3,547 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum (7) celebrates after a touchdown by running back Latavius Murray (not pictured) against the New Orleans Saints in the second quarter of the NFC Divisional Playoff football game at U.S. Bank Stadium. There seemed to be a fire lit under Keenum following the return of Teddy Bridgewater, whom most expected to take over after working his way back into game shape.

The Keenum deal officially removes a suitor for Cousins, although as of Monday afternoon it appeared the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets would be making the strongest push to land the former Washington Redskins starter.

The Broncos, who own the fifth pick in next month's National Football League draft, also considered Cousins following a 5-11 season in which Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all struggled behind a porous offensive line and questionable play-calling before Mike McCoy was replaced by Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator. "Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position".

Only the winless Cleveland Browns threw more interceptions than the Broncos' 22, and Denver had just one receiver catch more than 50 passes and finish with more than 560 yards receiving - Demaryius Thomas with 83 catches and 949 yards.

Tillerson says plans for North Korea meeting 'in the very early stages'
President Donald Trump or South Korean President Moon Jae-in to discuss the future of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons programme. Trump agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un by the end of May and the two Koreas will hold a summit by end-April.

The six-year veteran picked the flawless time for a career year before cashing in during free agency.

Just ask John Elway to say "rebuilding". "That was always fluid, too, but he was our target". He didn't start another game the rest of the year.

After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller. Keenum has to be what the Broncos have seen in their evaluations and then a little more.

Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing".

Or as Elway put it at the scouting combine: "I didn't say it". We didn't play well there past year. There were some things that we should have done, that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
