ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Denver Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller. ESPN reports that Case Keenum plans to sign with Denver when free agency opens Wednesday.

That would leave the Vikings, Cardinals and Jets vying to land ex-Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is expected to sign a record-breaking contract this week.

The 30-year-old Keenum is considered the second-best QB available on the open market. He guided Minnesota to the NFC championship game after replacing an injured Sam Bradford last season.
