Vikings Sign QB Case Keenum

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Vikings signed quarterback Case Keenum on Monday.

Keenum spent the past two seasons with the Rams, 2015 in St. Louis and 2016 in Los Angeles, where he went 7-7 as a starter. Keenum completed 272 of 447 passes (60.9 percent) for 3,029 yards with 13 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a passer rating of 79.5 in the past two seasons.

The former Houston Cougar joined the NFL in 2012 as an undrafted rookie with the Texans but didn't appear in a game until 2013 when he went 0-8 as a starter, completed 137 of 253 attempts (54.2 percent) for 1,760 yards with nine touchdowns and six interceptions and a passer rating of 78.2.

He went 2-0 the following season, boosting his completion rate by 4.2 percentage points in 2014.

Keenum became a starter with the Rams on Nov. 22, 2015, two weeks after his team visited the Vikings. He has played in 26 total games and has completed 454 of 777 passes for 5,224 yards with 24 touchdowns, 20 interceptions and a passer rating of 78.4.

Keenum joins a quarterback room that is returning Sam Bradford, who started 15 games and led the NFL with a record 71.6 completion percentage in 2016, and backup Taylor Heinicke, as well as Teddy Bridgewater, who is recovering from a dislocated knee.
