John Elway: Broncos will trade Case Keenum if requested to
Case Keenum’s Denver Broncos future is a murky one, but the team appears willing to accommodate him as best they can.
Broncos GM John Elway said Wednesday the team would welcome Keenum back as Joe Flacco’s backup, though he would have to restructure his contract for that to work. Elway added that the Broncos would trade Keenum is that was his wish.
John Elway said he’d like to have Case Keemun back with the broncos. His contract would obviously have to be adjusted. Also if Keenum’s camp would like to seek out a trade, Elway said he would allow them to do so.

Keenum has an $18 million base salary in 2019, which is why Denver would insist on restructuring and negotiating that down if Keenum elects to stay.
Keenum had a lot of mixed emotions after Denver traded for Flacco. It’s unclear what he’ll opt to do next, but Elway has put the ball very much in his court.
