Washington trade for Case Keenum

Redskins acquired QB Case Keenum and a 2020 seventh-round pick from the Broncos in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick.

For his troubles, Keenum is getting a $500,000 "restructure bonus" on top of his $7 million salary. To facilitate a trade, the Broncos have agreed to pay half of that. Keenum has agreed to waive the non-guaranteed $10.5 million he had been owed. It is probably the best Keenum and the Broncos could have hoped for. As for the Redskins, Keenum is an improvement on Colt McCoy but not much else. It's a decidedly modest Alex Smith fallback plan. Keenum predictably crash landed last season after his magical 2017 with the Vikings. It is going to be a long year in Washington.

Keenum won´t have any impact (it was Pat Shurmur, not him, with the Vikings) but the Redskins got him for next to nothing.

Broncos should really think about John Elway though, he´s losing out on trades, signings with no break.

If the Redskins don’t pick a QB this year I don’t know what’s going on. Keenum is solid, but I’m not sure that he is more than that. Decent bridge move for 2019.
