The Washington Redskins will have former Denver Broncos quarterback Case Keenum under center for the 2019-20 campaign as it stands today. With fellow Redskins quarterback Alex Smith expected to miss an extended period of time due to a devastating leg injury, Washington was forced to acquire Keenum from the aforementioned Broncos earlier in the offseason.

Although the Broncos obviously wanted to move on from the veteran signal-caller, Keenum has also managed to find at least one positive in being traded across the country.

“When the dust settled and it finally came to the actual trade and what was happening, I was really pleased,” Keenum recently told the Redskins’ official website. “My wife and I were really excited to be on a team that wanted me. It’s always nice to be traded for. The Redskins came out and wanted me and sought after me, so that feels good and it feels good to be wanted.”

Keenum has become quite the journeyman over the years while his stay in Washington may not be too long either with his contract only lasting for one more season.

“We’ve got a lot of challenges,” Keenum added. “For me personally, right now the biggest challenge is the one that’s right ahead of me, and that’s getting in here, getting to know the guys, getting to know the system, getting to know coaches and just becoming comfortable with just operating as a quarterback around here. I’m excited to do that, I’m excited to come into work today, it was great meeting the guys, getting to go to meetings, workouts – that’s the challenge right now. We’ll take them one at a time because we had a lot ahead.”

The Redskins are not expected to compete for an NFC East crown in 2019, though Washington could surprise some folks.
