According to multiple media reports Monday night, the Denver Broncos will sign quarterback Case Keenum when NFL free agency officially begins on Wednesday, March 14 at 2 p.m. mountain time.
ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the news.
Keenum had a career year in 2018, leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFL Championship game. He threw for 3,547 yards with 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
Broncos GM John Elway has said since the regular season ended that they needed to upgrade the quarterback position.
"Life's too short to rebuild in the NFL," Elway said at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, as if hinting the Broncos would opt to sign a veteran quarterback.
Along with playing for the Vikings, Keenum has spent time with the Texans and Rams.
Broncos sideline reporter and Orange and Blue 760 morning host Tyler Polumbus joined Colorado's Morning News and spoke with April, Marty and Mike about QB Case Keenum coming to the Broncos.

First QB domino has fallen.
QB race is on.
Case Keenum contract expected to be short term. It does not appear Broncos made serious run at Kirk Cousins. Keenum was target when negotiating window opened this morning. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 13, 2018
Heard from prominent agent Broncos deal is expected to be 2 years for at least $36 million for Case Keenum. Great move by player (betting on self). Great move by team (flexibility to improve rest of roster). #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 13, 2018
