Report: Redskins to trade for Broncos QB Case Keenum

After finishing the 2018 season with a fourth-string quarterback, the Washington Redskins are reportedly working on a trade for Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum.

The Broncos ridding themselves of Keenum does not come as much of a surprise considering the team recently traded for former Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

As for Washington, the Redskins were in desperate need for a depth at the quarterback position. It has already been confirmed that Alex Smith will miss the entire 2019 season as he recuperates from a severe leg injury he suffered last November.

Keenum will arrive to D.C. after finishing an underwhelming season that saw him produce a 6-10 record while throwing for just 18 touchdowns and a whopping 15 interceptions.

Update: The exact details of the trade have been reported.

Perhaps the east coast will better suit Keenum moving forward.
