WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - The Washington Redskins are adding to their depleted quarterback depth by acquiring Case Keenum from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a draft pick.
The Redskins will also get a seventh-round draft pick in the deal, while they give up a sixth-round selection.
According to Ian Rapoport, Keenum will challenge Colt McCoy for the starting job.
#Broncos QB Case Keenum was the #Redskins top QB target based on price (his deal has offsets) and experience. He’ll come in and have to battle with Colt McCoy when this gets done. Washington checking off a big item on their to-do list.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 7, 2019
Washington needed to add depth under center as Alex Smith continues to recover from a broken leg he suffered during the 2018 season.
