The Denver Broncos will shop quarterback Case Keenum following the reported acquisition of Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Keenum could be asked to take a pay cut or be released if a trade is not reached. He's guaranteed $7 million in 2019 and carries a cap hit of $21 million. Trading him will leave the Broncos with $3 million in dead cap space while cutting him would cost $10 million in dead money.

Keenum will turn 31 years old on Feb. 17. He's coming off a 2018 campaign in which he completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 3,890 yards and 18 touchdowns against 15 interceptions while leading the Broncos to a 6-10 record.

The former undrafted free agent enjoyed a career year with the Minnesota Vikings in 2017 when he led the team to an 11-3 regular-season record and a trip to the NFC Championship Game.
