Terms of Keenum's pending contract are unknown, but it's expected to be a short-term deal.

As of Sunday night, a source told 9News Broncos general manager John Elway was planning to negotiate with two free-agent quarterbacks - Washington's Kirk Cousins, who was the consensus top prize, and Keenum, who was considered a strong No. 2 choice, when the free-agent negotiating period opened at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The Broncos are coming off a 5-11 season, one in which they struggled in large part due to their lack of competent quarterbacking. It all came together for Keenum in 2017, though, as he threw for 22 touchdowns against just 7 interceptions while posting an 11-3 record as a starter for the Vikings.

Keenum last season led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC championship game for the first time since 2009, completing 67.6 percent of his passes for 3,547 yards with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

The veteran quarterback will be reunited with Gary Kubiak, who was his former head coach with the Houston Texans and is now a senior personnel advisor for the Broncos.

The six-year veteran picked the flawless time for a career year before cashing in during free agency.

Thomas, who was with the Cavaliers to start this season, was scoreless in the first quarter, missing all three of his shots. The Lakers' solid effort against Cleveland underlined that notion, for whatever it's worth in James' mind.

With Keenum headed to Denver, Cousins' potential destinations are now down to three teams: the Vikings, the Cardinals and the Jets.

Elway had said early in the offseason "for us to have a chance to get better we have to get better at that position".

At the National Football League scouting combine this month, Elway said, "we'll continue to look at all of the options out there when it comes to quarterback".

The Broncos, who own the fifth pick in next month's National Football League draft, also considered Cousins following a 5-11 season in which Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all struggled behind a porous offensive line and questionable play-calling before Mike McCoy was replaced by Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator.

After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller. Their inconsistent play on both the offensive line and at quarterback have been big reasons why they've sat out the postseason.

Or as Elway put it at the scouting combine: "I didn't say it". We just have to figure out a way to get it right. That doesn't all go on the players.
