NFL fans crushed the Redskins for agreeing to trade with Broncos for Case Keenum

The Redskins have agreed to acquire quarterback Case Keenum from the Denver Broncos, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

The Broncos will also adjust Keenum's contract for Washington as part of the trade, Rapoport reported.

Keenum is expected to compete with Colt McCoy for the Redskins' starting quarterback spot. The Redskins are on the hook for $3.5 million.

Keenum had an up-and-down season in Denver after he signed a two-year, $36 million deal with the team in March 2018.

That decision was upheld in 2017 by a federal appeals court decision, keeping wolves protected across the region to this point. Protections for Northern Rockies states' wolves were lifted in 2011 and hundreds are now killed annually by hunters.

But after posting a career-high 98.3 quarterback rating with 22 touchdowns, seven interceptions and 3,546 passing yards on 67.6 completion rate in 2017, he regressed last season in Denver.

After the Broncos landed Joe Flacco in a trade last month, Keenum was put on the trading block, and it appears he's close to heading to the nation's capital, according to multiple reports.

In Keenum's lone season with the Broncos, the 31-year-old threw for 3,890 yards and 18 touchdowns to 15 interceptions.
