Tony Pauline had the news before anyone else.

On Wednesday night, Pauline said the Washington Redskins were in on Case Keenum. Pauline is with NFL Draft Analyst and can be heard on the Blev Podcast Network. He was told by multiple people that Keenum was a target for them at quarterback. Less than 24 hours later, the Redskins and Denver Broncos worked out a deal. That will be finalized on Wednesday when the league year officially starts.

On Friday’s 1st & 10 @ 10 on Orange and Blue 760, Pauline joined the guys to talk about the trade and how it affects both teams. Pauline said it makes sense for both the Broncos and Washington, and I agree with him. The fact John Elway was able to unload half of the $7 million guaranteed to Keenum is a major win.

Pauline and the guys also talked about what went wrong for Keenum and why it didn’t work out for him in Denver. I personally believe it’s a combination of him not being very good but also Bill Musgrave and the coaching staff not utilizing him properly.

They also touch on what the Broncos should do in the NFL Draft. Pauline said, despite the fact Denver traded for Joe Flacco, the need is still quarterback.

In terms of the draft, we’ll get a good gauge of what the Broncos will do after free agency and who they sign. Good thing for Denver fans, we’re only a few days away.
