NFL execs predict Case Keenum's 2018 deal -- with the Vikings or elsewhere

PHILADELPHIA -- Sunday night wasn't Case Keenum's night, to put it mildly, but 2017 was still resoundingly his season. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback parlayed a one-year, $2 million contract as a backup into a more lucrative future -- even if his performance in the NFC Championship Game loss knocked him down a notch or two.

With insights from agents, salary-cap managers and other insiders, we size up how much Keenum will command, what Minnesota might be thinking and where Keenum fits with his peers from a statistical standpoint.

"It will be interesting to see how it shakes out," a personnel director said. "I think the dominoes will start falling when you see where [Vikings offensive coordinator] Pat Shurmur will go, and does he take [Sam] Bradford or Keenum? Even if Shurmur goes to New York, I think one of those QBs goes somehow."
