The Broncos are currently planning to start Case Keenum under center in 2019.
The 30-year-old had an up-and-down first season in Denver after he signed a two-year, $36 million deal with the team in March. But, Denver isn’t expecting to make a change at quarterback, new coach Vic Fangio told reporters Thursday.
Fangio coached against Keenum in 2017 when he was the Bears defensive coordinator and the signal-caller was playing for the Vikings.
“Right now, Case Keenum is our quarterback,” Fangio said. “I’ve had the good fortune — or misfortune, since I’m standing here good fortune — of seeing him at his best in his career when he played for Minnesota last year, being in our division at the time.
“So, I know what he’s capable of and we’re going to try to get that out of him.”
Keenum threw for 3,890 yards with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 16 games for Denver this season. He completed 62.3 percent of his passes.The Broncos finished 2018 with a 6-10 record and missed the playoffs for a third straight year. They fired coach Vance Joseph after two seasons in late December.
