Poll: What grade does the Redskins trade for Case Keenum get? What else should they do at QB?

It hasn’t even been a day since the Case Keenum trade news hit and people have pretty split opinions on the deal. 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.

The deal itself isn’t terrible, and it is pretty damn cheap for a backup/low end starter like Keenum. It’s easy to give this trade a good grade just for the value which the Redskins needed this season while they eat Alex Smith’s cap money. The bigger question is what else, if anything will Washington do at QB this season.

The winner of the Case Keenum/Colt McCoy QB battle doesn’t really move the needle, and would take a lot of things to go right to lead the team to the playoffs. They could still try to grab Josh Rosen from the Cardinals if he is available. Or they could still get a QB in this year’s draft to develop as their long-term starter.

What grade does the Case Keenum get, and what should the Redskins do at QB this year?
