Keenum would compete with Colt McCoy for the starting position. Former starter Alex Smith is not expected to be back this year and his career could be over.

Smith suffered an horrific injury last November against the Houston Texans at FedExField in Landover, Maryland. Following his injury, he had infections that caused his injury to get worse after surgery.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Keenum was atop their wish list. While 9News’ Mike Klis is reporting Keenum re-worked his contract.

Spotrac has Keenum making $18 million this season. Klis is reporting that Keenum received $500,000 in a restructured bonus.

The Broncos will now pay $3.5 million of his $7 million salary. The Redskins will pay the remaining $3.5 million.

The 31-year-old Abilene, Texas native signed with the Broncos after one spectacular season with the Minnesota Vikings. In Denver, he made 16 starts, but went 6-10.

As the Broncos signal-caller, he went 365 of 586 for 3,890 yards. He also had 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. 

His best season as a starter was with the Vikings in 2017. He went 11-3 in 14 starts. 

That season, he went 325 of 481 for 3,547 yards. He had 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. 

As a starter, he is 26-28 in 54 starts. He has made 57 appearances in his career. 

Keenum has gone 1,144 of 1,844 for 12,661 yards. He has 64 touchdowns and 42 interceptions.
