The first domino in the quarterback free agency free-for-all has seeming fallen, and Case Keenum appears to be the Denver Broncos next signal-caller.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports that Keenum, who took the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship last season, “intends to sign” with the Broncos when free agency hits at 2 p.m. Denver time Wednesday.
The move would reunite the quarterback with his former head coach, Gary Kubiak, who signed on as the Broncos senior personnel advisor earlier this offseason.

Keenum signed with Houston in 2012 as a college free agent, spending his rookie on the Texans practice squad before making the 53-man roster the following year.
He’d start eight games during Kubiak’s final season in Houston, going 0-8 while throwing for 1,760 yards, 9 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions.
