Pauline singles out the Redskins as a team who is in on Keenum, especially if they are not able to acquire quarterback Josh Rosen from the Cardinals. He goes on to say that Washington could add both players to their roster.
Keep in mind, they lost quarterback Alex Smith to a gruesome knee injury and he as already been ruled out for the entire 2019 season and potentially ending his career in the NFL. So they are a quarterback needy team picking in the middle part of the first-round of next months NFL Draft. Not a great position to be in so a move like this makes sense of them.
Pauline doesn’t state whether or not Washington is prepared to trade for him or not but the fact that a “half a dozen or so” of teams have showed some level of interest in Keenum likely points to a trade. I wouldn’t expect much in return, likely a day three selection or even a player swap, but it appears there is genuine interest in Keenum’s services.
As you know, the Broncos have agreed to trade for Joe Flacco and that trade will become finalized next week once the new league year begins. The Broncos are sending a 4th round selection to Baltimore for Flacco. There were reports that Washington checked in on Flacco as well so it also makes sense that they would do the same for Keenum.
Listen to Pauline’s entire report on Keenum and Washington below. His report starts around the 5:50 mark.
