The Denver Broncos pulled off the 1st blockbuster trade of the year on Wednesday, buying quarterback Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens.
When the addition of Flacco does not preclude the Broncos from taking a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft, it does simply call into concern the upcoming of Situation Keenum, who took around under heart for Denver in 2018.
Keenum presently has one year remaining on his deal, but will unquestionably want out of Denver with Flacco inbound and a rookie quarterback even now possible.
So, what may well that indicate for the New York Giants?
In addition to removing a crew from the probable Nick Foles chase, it also primarily puts Keenum on the current market. And contemplating the Giants are searching for an eventual replacement to Eli Manning, they could get a flier on Keenum, who had a vocation year with the Minnesota Vikings under then-offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
That year, Keenum accomplished 67.2 per cent of his passes though posting vocation-highs in passer-rating (98.3) and QBR (74.3). He concluded with a report (as starter) of 11-3.
But does Keenum to the Giants really make sense? The shorter reply is no, but the speculation has by now begun however.
Since the narrative is set up that the Giants want a quarterback, every one that gets readily available will guide to a debate and speculation. Having said that, Manning will stay the starter in 2019 no make a difference what the crew does, so at $18 million — assuming they traded for him — Keenum hardly appears worthy of it. Incorporate in the point that they’d have to give up a draft decide and the likelihood of bringing him on gets even a lot less most likely.
If the Giants do deem it totally vital to uncover a quarterback this offseason, it will most likely arrive by way of the NFL Draft and not a trade or cost-free agency. Both way, the upcoming incoming quarterback will have to journey the pine at the rear of Manning though competing with Kyle Lauletta for the No. 2 spot.
