According to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter, free agent quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday. Free agents cannot officially sign with a new team, or their respective team, until 4 pm on March 14th.

Keenum comes to the Broncos after having a career season with the Minnesota Vikings. He spent one season with the Vikings.

He comes to the Broncos in their attempt to solidify their quarterback position. Last season, it was a mess, as they played three quarterbacks — Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, and Brock Osweiler.

Osweiler is a free agent, but Siemian and Lynch will remain on the roster until John Elway can find a way to deal them away.

There’s been speculation that Keenum could get anywhere from $16-to-$18 million per season after guiding the Vikings to the NFC Championship game, before losing to the Philadelphia Eagles. He was also a fallback plan for the Broncos in case Kirk Cousins signed elsewhere, which he is expected to do with either the Vikings or the New York Jets.

In Keenum, head coach Vance Joseph — who needs to have a winning season or he could be fired — is getting a quarterback, who went 11-3 during the regular season last year. He went 325 of 482 for 3,547 passing yards. He also had 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

As a career NFL quarterback, Keenum has gone 20-18 in 38 NFL starts with the Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams, before they became the Los Angeles Rams, and the Vikings. He’s appeared in 41 games.

As an NFL starter, he’s gone 779 of 1,258 for 8,771 passing yards. He has 46 touchdowns and 27 interceptions.
