Offseason quarterback upgrade:

Case Keenum had himself a magical season in 2017 and one that he will probably remember for the rest of his life.

That being said, it was the first time in Keenum’s six-year NFL career that he was able to achieve any sort of significant success. The quarterback had never even thrown for more than nine touchdowns in a season before 2017.

Understandably, the Vikings opted not to re-sign Keenum this offseason and instead went after a more proven quarterback in Kirk Cousins.

For those who don’t believe Cousins is an obvious upgrade over Keenum for Minnesota, maybe go ahead and set up an appointment with an eye doctor sooner than later.

With Cousins instead of Keenum in 2018, the Vikings will have a quarterback who is more accurate, has a stronger arm, and has the ability to transform the offense into one of the league’s most explosive units.
