Rams Extend First-Round Tender To Case Keenum

The Rams have offered a first-round tender to restricted free agent Case Keenum, reports Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Keenum would earn $3.635MM in 2016 under the one-year deal.Case Keenum (Vertical)

If another club expressed interest in poaching Keenum, they would not only have to sign him to an offer sheet, but they would need to sacrifice a first-round pick if Los Angeles declined to match the offer. That scenario seems wholly unlikely, so Keenum will likely return to the Rams, who have already said Keenum will enter the offseason as their starter.

Keenum, 28, took over as the Rams’ starter last season after Nick Foles was benched — he went on to start five games, completing about 61% of his passes for 828 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Head coach Jeff Fisher has said Keenum will start, but it’s always possible that the club brings in competition, either via the draft or through free agency.

Foles, meanwhile, can reportedly be had via trade, and a number of clubs could make sense as suitors.

    Lol no team going to want him now. Dude not worth a first round pick


    All these teams are going crazy focusing on upgrading the QB and the new LA Rams are busy putting first round tenders on Case Keenum. LOL
    Cause everyone wants him.

    Huh? Seems like a waste of that tender. They couldn’t use this on Jenkins?
