"Obviously, we have to get better at that (quarterback) position", general manager John Elway said at the National Football League combine.

Quarterback Case Keenum is expected to sign with the Denver Broncos once free agency opens, according to Adam Schefter. Garrett Bolles, who the Broncos drafted in the first round previous year will be improved after a rookie season that saw him develop throughout. He might get to do that, though most of the teams looking for quarterbacks (Denver, Miami, Arizona, etc) aren't going to simply add one guy and call it a day.

Perhaps most importantly, Keenum showed a tremendous aptitude for protecting the football, throwing just seven interceptions all season and avoiding a pick in nine of his 14 starts.

The 30-year-old product out of Houston turned in career highs in completion percentage, touchdowns and passing yards as he completed 67.6 percent of his passes and threw for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns.

As for the Houston Texans, there haven't been any firm confirmations of contracts that will be agreed to when free agency begins as of yet. Los Angeles fans will surely be watching to see if the team can find a veteran free agent kicker given the team's special teams woes in 2017.

Would the Broncos have been better with Kirk Cousins instead Case Keenum? Despite that, Keenum went undrafted and spent the entire 2012 season on the Texans practice squad.

So what do the Broncos have in Keenum.

Keenum's arrival means Paxton Lynch is expected to return as a backup with competition from Chad Kelly and a potential draft choice - that has not been ruled out - as Denver plans on trading Trevor Siemian. That allows the Broncos to address other needs and prevents them from stealing the likes of Baker Mayfield or Josh Allen from the Jets.

The Denver Broncos have apparently worked out their quarterback situation ahead of the official start of free agency.

It wasn't much of a secret that the Broncos' defense was too often hung out to dry by the offense's poor play last season, and more than a few of Denver's defenders voiced that over the course of their disastrous, 5-11 campaign.
