ESPN    ESPN reports, free-agent quarterback Case Keenum intends to leave the Minnesota Vikings and sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency officially opens on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

ESPN first reported the news early this morning, adding that the Broncos also considered Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and had conversations about Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater before zeroing in on Keenum.

The deal is expected to be a short-term agreement, suggesting it won’t preclude the Broncos from taking a quarterback with the fifth overall pick in next month’s draft if they so choose. His signing cannot be made official until the new league year opens at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
