After Peyton Manning rode off into the sunset after the 2015 season, the Denver Broncos attempted to find their new deputy through multiple different avenues. But after two years of falling short, they broke the bank to bring in a proven vet to take the reins.
Since the team landed Case Keenum, kind comments from coaches and players have been thrown his way every day about his leadership and demeanor. But it wasn’t until this week his teammates actually got to see his play, and leadership, in person and on the field.
In just the third practice of OTAs, Keenum not only got the attention of his fellow offensive players — literally — but the seven-year vet grabbed the eyes, and approval, of his defensive teammates, as well.
