Case Keenum has been at his greatest when he’s Mr. Proper Now, and he’s by no means actually been seen as Mr. Proper. The previous undrafted free agent has needed to scrap for every little thing he’s gotten within the NFL, and often does a ok job. Now, if experiences are correct–as first coming from Barstool Nate after which Ian Rapoport–he may very well be transferring to Washington.
His time in Denver was going to come back to an finish after the Broncos traded for Joe Flacco, and in a weird little bit of symmetry, he now strikes to the crew that allow Kirk Cousins go, which in flip led to Keenum’s departure from Minnesota.
Keenum will now be Mr. Proper Now due to the Alex Smith harm, and provides Washington, who will not be actually in an excellent place to draft a quarterback to instantly begin, a short-term choice. No matter you consider Keenum, it’s essential to level out that whereas he’ll by no means been an all-pro, he’s been an honest starter.

In 2013, as an unknown and undrafted 25-year-old, he changed an ineffective Matt Schaub and carried out admirably on a nasty crew, placing up higher numbers than Schaub.
In 2015, he performed higher than an ineffective Nick Foles when coming off the bench because the Rams went Three-2 in video games he began.
1n 2016, he went Four-5 in beginning for the Rams whereas Jared Goff wasn’t prepared. When the crew made the change to Goff, they completed Zero-7 and Goff averaged 1.5 yards per try fewer than Keenum.
In 2017, he got here off the bench for his magical season, after Sam Bradford’s harm, and Minnesota went to the title recreation.
After which final yr, for the primary time ever, he was given 16 begins and it was mediocre. However in years the place he has performed with different quarterbacks, he has outplayed Matt Schaub, Nick Foles, a rookie Jared Goff, and Sam Bradford. So for now, Case Keenum will do for Washington.
