EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have signed quarterback Case Keenum, acquiring the experienced backup sought for starter Sam Bradford with the unlikelihood that the rehabilitating Teddy Bridgewater will be ready to play this season.
Keenum started nine games in 2016 for the Los Angeles Rams, before they turned to rookie Jared Goff. He had nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions, while completing 60.9 percent of his passes for 2,201 yards. Keenum is 9-15 in 24 NFL starts.
After a standout college career with Houston, becoming the NCAA's all-time passing leader with 19,217 yards and 155 touchdowns, Keenum turned pro in the same city in 2012 and spent three years with the Texans.
