Video Details

In his discussion on reports that Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos, Shannon Sharpe explains to Skip Bayless and Joy Taylor why John Elway chose the best QB option in Keenum after losing out on Kirk Cousins.

- Right move for your Broncos by John Elway?

SHANNON SHARPE: He's the best option after losing out on Kirk Cousins. Skip, you couldn't lose out-- you can't lose out on both. And you can't keep putting all your eggs in Kirk Cousins' basket and then someone swoops in and now you lose Case Keenum and you lose Cousins. This is what we know. This team is equipped to I believe-- challenge for a Playoff spot and go deep into the Playoffs with consistent quarterback play.

They tried it last year. Paxton Lynch is not ready. We don't know if he'll ever be ready. We knew what Brock Osweiler was a year ago. But I guess at $725,000, Skip, if he was just too big of an option to pass up.

And then Trevor Siemian, he is what he is. He's a good back up-- can come in and give you about a month worth of work. Now you need our starter back. I believe Case Keenum is the best option for the Broncos. It probably saved them in the neighborhood of $10 to $12 million a year. So now they'll be able to go and maybe address another issue-- offensive line, maybe defensive line.

We know John wanted to make a splash. Peyton Manning, we saw it. D Ware from the Cowboys, he's-- Aqib Talib. So in free agency Skip, he's not trying to get no bottom feeder. He's not just trying to get oh, just a guy. No, no. He's trying to get name guys, proven guys.

I believe Case Keenum is the best option because it doesn't look like Kirk Cousins is going to be an option. So I agree. Yes, this is the right move for the Broncos. And I believe Elway did an unbelievable job.
