National Football League free agency primer: Vikings' No. 2 need is offensive line

13 March 2018

One of those making the rounds Monday morning comes from NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, who mentioned the Buffalo Bills as a "team to watch" when it comes to Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford.

Four days after the Browns dropped out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes by trading for Tyrod Taylor, the Broncos appear to have followed suit.

At the scouting combine, two weeks before the start of free agency, Elway did compare the "fluid" nature of chasing a quarterback in free agency this year to the pursuit of Manning.

In a good old fashioned late-night news dump, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos (5-11 in 2017) when free agency officially begins on Wednesday.

Buhari met with the herdsmen association Miyetti Allah, and appealed with the people in the state to apply restraint. Ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo has visited the gravesite of 73 people killed by Fulani herdsmen in Benue state.

There was a possibility that Keenum could have returned to the Vikings in 2018, but the team did not want to give him the kind of money (more than $20 million per year) that some had been estimating he could get in the open market.

Keenum is now 30 years old, and was a mediocre-to-bad quarterback for his entire career, until last season.

Keenum, Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees are considered the top quarterbacks in free agency, with the Broncos heavily evaluating Cousins and Teddy Bridgewater before deciding Keenum would be their pick. Let's also not forget that they have the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, which they could spend on a quarterback, though the acquisition of Keenum seems to make that less likely. I feel like we can get right back in the thick of the things rather quickly.

Keenum is coming off the best year of his career, leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship.

The Broncos haven't made the playoffs since their Super Bowl win to close out the 2015 season.

Keenum finished the season with 3,547 yards passing to go with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Keenum started eight games under Kubiak in 2013, completing 54.2 percent of his passes for 1,760 yards with nine touchdown passes against six interceptions.

Maybe Keenum's 2017 season was for real, but Elway shouldn't approach the rest of the offseason with that assumption.
