Redskins QB Case Keenum: "I'm excited to play (the Cowboys). I grew up in Texas, obviously Cowboy country. A lot of my friends and family back home, they got a big box of Redskins gear this year, but they have to hide it from all their friends. But they're a great football team."

Jay Gruden says Montez Sweat will play a lot in his rookie season

After the Washington Redskins pulled off what has widely been seen as an ultra-successful NFL Draft in April, the question now is when we will see the new crop of young talent take the field.

It could be a handful of weeks before QB Dwayne Haskins usurps the starting role from Case Keenum, but one rookie who is basically a lock to see some early playing time is edge rusher Montez Sweat.

The Redskins traded back into the first round to take Sweat with the No. 26 pick. If it weren't for some unanswered questions surrounding a possible heart condition, Sweat likely would have been selected earlier in the first round. Now, it sounds as if Gruden plans to deploy his draft day steal as soon as possible

Report: Redskins working to acquire QB Case Keenum from Broncos

It appears the Washington Redskins have settled on the idea of Case Keenum.

Stuck without a starting quarterback going into next season with Alex Smith's injury leaving a question mark under center, a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests the Redskins are working on a trade for Keenum with the Denver Broncos:

Sources: The #Redskins and #Broncos are working a trade for QB Case Keenum to land in Washington. Issues to work out, but both sides are motivated to make this happen

What's next for Case Keenum?

Case Keenum was right to not worry about the Broncos drafting a quarterback in round one. With Joe Flacco and his $18.5 million base salary arriving in Denver, the Broncos won't need Keenum and his $18 million base salary. So the question becomes where will Keenum go? Trading him would result in a $3 million

Broncos' GM John Elway describes Case Keenum as "probably a short-term fix," per report

It seems Case Keenum‘s first season quarterbacking the Broncos has not inspired overwhelming confidence from general manager John Elway.

Elway discussed a variety of topics with Peter King for NBC Sports' Football Morning in America on Monday, including Denver's direction at quarterback.

"Obviously, we've got to — Case (Keenum) is probably a short-term fix — find the long-term guy for us," Elway said. "When we do find that guy, we've got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don't find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.
