Report: Broncos to trade Trevor Siemian to Vikings

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos are on the verge of trading quarterback Trevor┬áSiemian to the Minnesota Vikings, according to several reports.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport was the first to report the news.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Broncos will also give the Vikings a 2018 late-round pick for a pick in the the 2019 NFL Draft.

Siemian will join Kirk Cousins and former Broncos fan favorite Kyle Sloter in Minnesota. Siemian reportedly had several other teams interested in him.

The news comes after the Broncos signed unrestricted free agent quarterback Case Keenum to a two-year contract as free agency opened Wednesday.

Keenum led the Vikings to the NFC Championship game last season.

Siemian was drafted by the Broncos in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Siemian was the starting quarterback for the Broncos for the majority of the 2016 and 2017 seasons after beating out first-round draft pick Paxton Lynch.

He was benched in October after several turnovers but returned as the starter later in the season.

He finished the season with 12 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
