In his first public comments since learning that the Denver Broncos plan to trade for Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, current Broncos quarterback Case Keenum and his wife Kimberly spoke to Sports Spectrum and said he was “definitely shocked.” 

“[Broncos general manager John] Elway called me that morning and we had a great conversation, which he didn’t have to do, and I appreciated that,” Keenum said. “I was definitely shocked, it was a surprise for us and I think probably for the first day or so that’s kind of what it was. But for us, we’re definitely disappointed, it’s not something we wanted to happen. I know that everybody’s doing their job and John feels like that was a chance for him to help the Broncos out.”

For us, it’s another chapter in our lives and we’re going to roll with it,” Keenum said with his wife, Kimberly, by his side. “We’re going to approach this like I do everything in my entire life, and that it’s not by accident this has happened. It’s just another chapter and another opportunity to overcome some adversity in my life.”

Watch below: 

Keenum  started all 16 games for the Broncos in 2018, the most games he has ever started in one season. 

Denver finished the year 6-10 while Keenum threw for 3,890 yards (a career high; 14th in the NFL), 18 touchdowns (23rd) and 15 interceptions (tied for second).

Clearly Elway doesn’t have 100% confidence in Keenum, or Flacco would not be heading to the Mile High City.
