The Redskins found their QB

NFL: Denver Broncos at Washington Redskins Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Officially Official: Case Keenum is a Redskins QB

The Redskins have been linked to multiple QBs this offseason, and now they have reportedly found their guy for this season. Washington will reportedly send a 6th round pick in 2020 to the Denver Broncos for QB Case Keenum and a 2020 7th round pick. Keenum's contract will get reworked with the Redskins only owing him $3.5 million for this year.

This is a cheap deal for the Redskins which is what they needed following Alex Smith's leg in jury last season. Smith is expected to miss at least this season as he recovers from a broken tibia and fibula, along with multiple surgeries to deal with infections.

The Broncos move on from Keenum after one season. Denver acquired QB Joe Flacco from the Ravens, and it was only a matter of time before Keenum was traded or released. Keenum soent the previous season as The Minnesota Vikings starter, before he was replaced by Kirk Cousins.
