Case Keenum Named Redskins Starter

With the regular season starting in less than a few days, the Washington Redskins announced that offseason acquisition Case Keenum will be their opening day starter.

Firstly, Keenum had been rumored to be the team’s starter. This is so veteran quarterback Colt McCoy has been unable to practice as he recovers from the broken leg he suffered in December. Also, rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who has looked promising at times, will back up Keenum.

Keenum, who has started 54 games in his career, signed with the Denver Broncos last season. This after leading the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship Game two seasons ago. Also, after going 11-3 as their starter. His time in Denver wasn’t as impressive and the team traded for former Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco in the offseason, which made Keenum expendable.

Secondly, in the past two years he’s thrown a combined 40 touchdowns to 22 interceptions. Can he do it again?

“The experience factor is something you really lean upon, and Case has been productive in practice and some of the games,” Gruden said. “Case has come in here and picked up the offense extremely well; he had great confidence and command over the team. We have great confidence Case can lead us to a win against Philadelphia.”

“I remember the feeling I had walking off the field,” Keenum said. “I don’t know if I can put it into words, but I’ve used it and plan on continuing to us it. It’s not a good feeling to get that close to what you dream of, to what everybody dreams of and to not get that next step. It was tough. But I’m definitely motivated.”

Veteran running back Adrian Peterson believes Keenum earned the starting quarterback job.

“Great leader in the huddle, just his work ethic and his knowledge of the offense,” Peterson said. “He’s deserving.”
