NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins and Denver Broncos have agreed to a trade.

Per 9News' Mike Klis, the Broncos will send Keenum and a 2020 seventh round pick.

Keenum, 31, is reportedly Washington's preferred option among available quarterbacks, as the team seek competition for Colt McCoy, while last year's starter Alex Smith tries to return from injury. Keenum, though, wasn't bad despite his struggles in Denver.

Per the outline of the trade, Keenum would rework his contract, leaving the Broncos to pay half of his remaining $7 million guaranteed with Washington absorbing the rest.




Earlier this off-season, the Denver Broncos made the bold choice to trade for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.

Keenum, a high-priced acquisition for the Broncos last offseason, should compete with McCoy for the starting job in Washington and serve as a stopgap for whatever future plans the Redskins have at quarterback. So a lot of these emotions that we're talking about are still kind of going on, still happening.

General manager John Elway indicated at the National Football League combine last week that he would consider Keenum returning as a backup, but only if there was "a contract adjustment".

Keenum starred for the Minnesota Vikings in 2017, helping them reach the NFC Championship Game. Though John Elway indicated he wanted Keenum to stay with the team, trading him is a move you can't argue with. In 14 starts, he threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Restructured deals or contract extensions for others could free up more.
