Huge Upgrade At QB
This offseason the Broncos and John Elway realized they needed to make a change at the QB position. Since the departure of Manning in 2015, the Broncos have started guys like Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, and Paxton Lynch to no avail. After failing to reach the playoffs for two years in a row partly due to QB play, the Broncos needed to make a move.
The Broncos achieved this goal by signing Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum. Keenum had a career year last season, throwing for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns, and just seven interceptions. The play of Keenum led the Vikings to an NFC Championship bid, where they fell short to the Philadelphia Eagles. Of course, we know the Eagles went on to win the Super Bowl.
The Vikings decided to go in a different direction at quarterback, signing Kirk Cousins to a humongous deal, leaving Keenum to look for a new home. Keenum finds himself in a similar situation as he did in Minnesota where he has a defense that can be impassable and a receiving group that is talented in their own right. If Keenum can produce like he did last season, the Broncos could be sitting at the top of the AFC West.
