A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that the Denver Broncos have agreed to trade quarterback Case Keenum to Washington. The trade will involve the Broncos seventh round pick in 2020 and the Redskins' sixth round draft pick in 2020.
The Redskins are Keenum's fifth NFL team since he entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Houston.
He signed a two-year, $36 million deal with the Broncos before the 2018 season. He'll replace Keenum under center in Denver. Denver and Washington will evenly split the $7 million guaranteed money that the quarterback is owed in 2019, per 9News' Mike Klis.
Washington needed to add depth under center as Alex Smith continues to recover from a broken leg he suffered during the 2018 season.
"We don't know what's going to happen", Keenum said February 21 about his future. So a lot of these emotions that we're talking about are still kind of going on, still happening. I don't for sure; God does. He was even better in 2017 - when he led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship.
The Case Keenum trade is already polarizing to Redskins fans. He's recorded a 26-28 record as a starter and has passed for 12,661 yards and 64 touchdowns with 42 interceptions. Keep in mind the Redskins could also look to the draft for more competition at the position, too. The move immediately ended Keenum's time as the starting.
