Here are three reasons a potential reunion between Case Keenum and the Los Angeles Rams makes perfect sense for the 2019 season.
Almost three years ago, Case Keenum found himself in a tough position with the Los Angeles Rams since despite being the starting quarterback, the veteran knew it was only a matter of time before Jared Goff took over the role under center.
Back in 2016, the Rams made the decision to trade up with the Tennessee Titans in the NFL Draft in order to land the former California star with the top overall pick, although the original plan was to have Goff learn from the sidelines as a rookie while playing behind Keenum.
Since Los Angeles was beyond awful on offense, Goff would eventually replace Keenum as the starter to gain some early experience, failing to win a single game in seven starts.
Of course, as every Rams fan knows, this early experience by Goff along with hiring Sean McVay in 2017 would go on to work wonders for the offense and the team in general, as Los Angeles will enter next season as the defending NFC champions.
Since there was little chance of Goff losing the starting job since Los Angeles didn’t give up all of those future draft picks for no reason, Keenu
m decided to sign with the Minnesota Vikings for the 2017 season as a backup to Sam Bradford, which turned out to be the best decision of his career.
With Bradford struggling once again to stay healthy, Keenum would go on to take over the starting job at quarterback, and even played a key role in helping the Vikings reach the NFC Championship later that season before falling to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Losing to Philadelphia the way they did was devastating for numerous reasons since Minnesota seemed capable of winning the Super Bowl, but at least Keenum’s impressive play would eventually help him land a hefty two-year deal last offseason with the Denver Broncos.
Unfortunately with the recent news regarding the Broncos agreeing to acquire Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens, it looks like Keenum’s time in Denver will be coming to an end soon, as the team is expected to look for a trade partner.
Obviously, the Rams want nothing to do with that ridiculous contract, but if they were able to work out some sort of intriguing deal with the Broncos to bring Keenum back, it would almost seem foolish for Los Angeles to pass on the offer since it would actually make sense.
Don’t think so? Well, here are some reasons to make a case for a reunion involving Keenum and the Rams, even if it sounds like a long shot at this point in the offseason.
