AFC Notes: Case Keenum, Broncos, Steelers


Case Keenum

  • Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post writes that there should be a market for Broncos QB Case Keenum this offseason, as he could restructure his contract. 
  • According to O’Halloran, the four teams who should kick the tires on Keenum include the Cardinals, Redskins, Jaguars and Dolphins


Jeff Legwold of ESPN writes that the Broncos’ new offensive under OC Rich Scangarello with Joe Flacco as quarterback will largely be the play-action and run-heavy system Gary Kubiak ran in Baltimore back in 2014.

Philosophically, my roots have always been in the zone-run system that Kyle Shanahan has run,” Scangarello said. “I see an offense that’s willing to take shots, that’s aggressive but is detailed in every way. That takes care of the football, that empowers its players to be the best that they can be by putting them in a position to be successful. I think our offense empowers the quarterback to have success and can adapt to his skill set.

Broncos GM John Elway said building “continuity” for the offense is “very important” since they’ve had four different offensive systems in as many years. 

It’s going to be very important for us to get some continuity on the offensive side,” Elway said. “This will be our fourth system in four years. That is something that we’re really going to concentrate on, getting some continuity. That’s what comes with the same system and finding the right guys.


Steelers’ veteran DE Tyson Alualu said it will be great for the team once the sagas involving Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are officially over. 

Hopefully it will pass and it will be all about football,” said Alualu, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN. “That will be great for our team.

  • Bell posted an Instagram post-workout video saying: “Wherever I go, I’ll be ready – 260 and all (with air quotes).” (Jeremy Fowler)
  • Steelers GM Kevin Colbert seemed to indicate during an interview with NFL Network that they could work an extension with TE Jesse James. (Chris Adamski)
