Case Keenum signed a two-year contract this offseason, which promised him a shot at a starting job but with no guarantee of taking the role full time. For example, if the Denver Broncos find a trade partner for Keenum next season,nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap he would only count $3 million against the cap, saving them $18 million.
Denver held the fifth pick in a draft where many projected five quarterbacks to come off the board in the first round, so Keenum’s job status was not completely entrenched until the team selected North Carolina State pass-rusher Bradley Chubb with the fifth pick.nike cheap nfl jerseys On top of keeping the Keenum-Paxton Lynch-Chad Kelly depth chart intact, John Elway drafted some toys for his new quarterback.
After releasing former running back C.J. Anderson, the team drafted Oregon running back Royce Freeman with the 71st overall pick to be the new top tailback. SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton was also added in the second round, and Penn State receiver DaeSean Hamilton was selected in the fourth round. Sutton and Hamilton will compete for playing time with 2017 third-round pick Carlos Henderson and 2017 fifth-round pick Isaiah McKenzie behind established receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. The latter duo can be released for cap purposes in 2019, but until then Keenum should have plenty to work with.nike nfl cheap jerseys
