The Browns are “very interested” in Case Keenum as a backup to Baker Mayfield, Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports.

It makes sense given Keenum had Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski as his position coach in Minnesota.

Keenum, 32, had his best season with the Vikings, going 11-3 and reaching the NFC Championship Game.

The Browns, though, will have competition for Keenum’s services, according to Cabot.

Washington traded for Keenum last year before it drafted Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall choice. Keenum went 1-7 as Washington’s starter.

He has thrown for 14,368 yards and 75 touchdowns in his career with an 85.3 passer rating.

  1. Stefanski + Keenum = probably some wins. At least Case can scramble a bit (referring back to Kurt C.)

  2. Case isn’t the most talented but can help Mayfield to be more of a professional while becoming valuable insurance.

  3. Mayfield better step up his game. He is not clearly better than Keenum. In fact, the Mayfield of last year is clearly worse than Keenum.

  4. I am sorry, but there is NO backup in the league worth $8 million per year. Yes Keenum can assist in improving Baker and again yes he is a great backup, but no way worth over 5 million.

    Signed a great TE today, please save money for O-line. Go Browns

  5. Good move for Browns. Keenum played well in Vikings system. Could be a huge asset if Mayfield struggles again.

  6. Keenum is a valuable back-up as demonstrated in 2017, although he excelled in Schurmur’s scheme, not Stefanski’s.

  7. When a team is very interested in a backup qb what does that say about their starter? Just saying….

  8. Keenum’s noodle arm will not work in the AFC north after October. There are no domes like he had in Minnesota.

  9. Whatever team Case Keenum goes to, I’m a fan of that team. He epitomizes everything good about a pro athlete… team player, works extremely hard, humble, always a positive outlook, knows how to have FUN, and he DOES know how to win WHEN PUT IN THE RIGHT SITUATION. I loved having him here in MN, and nothing against Kirk C, I admire him too, but I wish we’d have kept Keenum. I’m also currently reading Keenum’s book, Playing For More, and respecting him more and more with each chapter.
