Vikings Have Not Discussed Contract Extension With Case Keenum
The Minnesota Vikings have been one of the NFL’s most surprising teams in 2018 and it’s based, mostly, on the play of quarterback Case Keenum.
Keenum took over the starting quarterback gig when Sam Bradford was hurt and has held on to the job despite the return of Teddy Bridgewater.
Keenum’s play has been impressive, leading the Vikings to a 9-2 record while posting the best statistical season of his career.
The Vikings will have to make a lot of decisions regarding the quarterback position heading into the offseason with Keenum, Bridegwater and Bradford all scheduled to hit the open market in 2018.
Despite their predicament, Minnesota has not discussed a contract extension with Keenum, 29, nor do they have plans to work out new deals with any of the quarterbacks until the 2017 campaign comes to a close, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
This may be very risky for a Minnesota team that has rose to the top of the NFC and could be on the verge of a deep playoff run.
It will be interesting to see how the Vikes navigate through this scenario as the season winds down.
