Case Keenum to Broncos could alter QB market in Jets' favor

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported early Tuesday morning that Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos once 2018 free agency officially begins on Wednesday.

So what does that news mean for the team's 2017 quarterbacks?

But the Broncos are desperate to get back to contender status after slumping to a record of 5-11 in a 2017 season in which they tried Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler at quarterback. He guided Minnesota to the NFC championship game after replacing an injured Sam Bradford last season.

NCAA Tournament 2018: Winners and Losers of Day 1
BOTTOM LINE: Northeast Conference Tournament victor LIU-Brooklyn makes its first appearance in the tournament in five years. When Radford hired Mike Jones as its new basketball coach seven years ago, its program was in shambles.

Gary Kubiak stepped down as head coach over health concerns following a 9-7 season that ended the Broncos' five-year playoff run. (Or they like Chad Kelly, the most mysterious backup here since the last one.) Can't imagine this would be a lush, long-term deal for a quarterback with one starring role to his name - 22 touchdowns, seven picks, 3,547 yards (but only 22 sacks!) in 14 starts. While Minnesota remains the favorite to land Cousins, the Jets' chances just increased exponentially with Denver out of the picture. Teams looking for his services will are now narrowed down to the Vikings, Jets or Cardinals. Throughout his seven-year career, there's been a reason he was nearly always thrust into an emergency starter role, and now he has the confidence and comfort of at least a one-year residency under center in Denver. There were some things that we should have done differently that we didn't do. I thought they needed the right guy to pick the right guy.

With Denver no longer hunting for the quarterback, the makeup of the upcoming 2018 National Football League draft also changes.
