Last year with Denver, Keenum finished with a 62.3 completion percentage and threw for 3,890 yards. Keenum had 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
Over his career, Keenum has posted an 84.5 passer rating. By far his best season came in 2017 on a stacked Vikings offense, where he threw 22 TDs against just 7 picks.
NBC Sports Washington broke down what it would take to sign Keenum earlier this week. Read more about it here.
For Keenum to work in Washington, the veteran quarterback will have to take a big pay cut. Mike Klis of 9News in Denver reports that the Broncos will get Washington's 6th-round pick in 2020 and for Denver's 7th-round pick in 2020. With the restructured deal, each side will pay Keenum $3.5 million in salary.
