Vikings To Sign Case Keenum

The Vikings are signing quarterback Case Keenum, according to Mark Berman of FOX 26. Keenum’s deal is for one year and is worth $2MM plus incentives, Adam Caplan of tweets.

In two years with St. Louis/Los Angeles, Keenum appeared in ten games with nine starts. The results, frankly, were not great. He threw for 2,201 yards in total with nine touchdown passes against eleven interceptions. After the Rams selected Jared Goff No. 1 overall last year, the writing was on the wall for Keenum. He lost the job midway through the season and we haven’t heard any word of the Rams trying to re-sign him.

Keenum first made a name for himself as the QB of the high-powered University of Houston offense. He was with the hometown Texans from 2012 to 2014, before moving on to the Rams. Now, he’ll join the third team of his NFL career.

The Vikings already had quarterbacks Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater, and Taylor Heinicke under contract. With uncertainty about whether Bridgewater will be able to take the field, the Vikings are giving themselves some additional padding by adding Keenum.
