Quarterback Case Keenum is enjoying the best year of his career. Operating on a one-year, $2 million deal, Keenum will have plenty of options for 2018. He hopes to stay right where he is, however. “I love it here,” Keenum told PFT by phone after Sunday’s 38-30 win over Washington. “I love these guys. My wife and I love it here.” While he may not love his current situation of starter with a temporary feel to it (given the return of Teddy Bridgewater to the active roster), Keenum worries only about what he can control. “Every situation has prepared me for the next situation,” he said. Keenum mentioned his situation last year in L.A. Voted a team captain and named the Week One starter, he faced constant questions about being replaced for then-rookie Jared Goff. “It didn’t matter how well or how poorly I played,” Keenum said. “It was the same story, different verse.” He said he’s able to ignore the chatter about his status because he doesn’t ready many story about the NFL, focusing instead on honing his craft. Keenum also deftly handled questions about the impact of being the starter with an asterisk on his ability to lead, avoiding any type of complaints about the impact of his tenuous status on his ability to lead, while also pointing out that being a leader is a huge part of his overall craft.
