ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Broncos coach Vance Joseph said quarterback Case Keenum is doing better than he expected and has “grown as a quarterback” since the last time they worked together.

Joseph praised the Broncos’ new starting quarterback after Tuesday’s practice at the UCHealth Training Center.

“He’s better, in my opinion, than what I saw on tape,” Joseph said.

Joseph and Broncos senior personnel adviser Gary Kubiak coached Keenum while they were with the Houston Texans.

“Even talking to Kubiak this morning about Case — we had him in Houston — and how much he’s grown as a quarterback,” Joseph said. “His accuracy, his command, his smarts, his feel, he’s better now than he was last year, in my opinion.”

Keenum went 13-3 with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions with the Minnesota Vikings last season.

Joseph also praised backup quarterbacks Paxton Lynch and Chad Kelly after practice.

“[They’re] very solid,” Joseph said. “Paxton is making a lot of strides.”

Tuesday was the first day the Broncos were in full pads at training camp.
