Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum recently shared his reaction to being traded to the Buffalo Bills and his time with the team so far.

Whenever the NFL career of current Buffalo Bills quarterback Case Keenum comes to an end, his time in the league will most likely be remembered for the one season that he spent as a member of the Minnesota Vikings.

Keenum had a magical year with the Vikings in 2017 that was highlighted by his participation in the iconic Minneapolis Miracle play in the divisional round of the playoffs that season.

Now he’s with the Bills, where he’s not only reunited with his miracle partner in Stefon Diggs, but he feels great that a team actually had a legitimate desire to trade for him.

Back in March, Buffalo made the decision to trade for Keenum, so they sent a seventh-round draft pick over to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the veteran quarterback.

Josh Allen is the unquestioned starting signal-caller for the Bills, but now they have an experienced backup in Keenum.

Recently, the former Minnesota quarterback talked to the Buffalo News’ Jay Skurski about getting traded to Buffalo and what his time with his new team has been like so far.

"“It feels great to have a team want you to come. I think that’s when you look at a trade, you know, it’s less about being traded away. It’s a team that wants you. It’s a fresh start. A great city. I think Buffalo has exceeded my expectations in a lot of different ways, including off the field, out of the building. It’s been great.”"

Keenum also commented on his opportunity to be in the same locker room as Diggs for the first time since the 2017 season.

"“To get back with Stef, give him a hug and throw him the ball again, I didn’t really think I would ever do that. I wasn’t sure after that year, so it’s exciting to get to be able to do that.”"

With the Bills expected to be one of the best teams in the NFL next season, this will likely be Keenum’s first chance since 2017 to be on a team that has a legitimate shot to win the Super Bowl.

He and Diggs could actually end up celebrating a championship together after all. Unfortunately though, it wouldn’t be done with them wearing purple and gold jerseys.
