NFL Network's Steve Wyche says "don't be shocked" if Case Keenum is the Rams' Week 1 starter.
While Keenum is presently listed atop the Rams' quarterback depth chart, it would be a major shock if he beats out Jared Goff. Wyche says Goff is "nowhere near being ready to start Week 1" and is "swimming in it." Keenum was ineffective in a game-manager role last year, and there's still plenty of time for Goff to win the starting job. This could just be a case of the Rams attempting to lower expectations for the No. 1 overall pick in year one. Jun 17 - 1:37 PM

Case Keenum will enter training camp as the Rams' starting quarterback.

The Rams traded three museums worth of valuables for the right to select Jared Goff at No. 1 overall, but ever the lover of formality and convention, coach Jeff Fisher will make Goff jump through artificial hoops on his way toward Week 1 starting status. It would be stunning if Goff isn't under center against the 49ers.
Jun 16 - 6:44 PM

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Rams "would also listen" to trade offers for Case Keenum, in addition to Nick Foles.

The Rams are going to move one of these quarterbacks after selecting Cal QB Jared Goff at No. 1 overall on Thursday night. They'd definitely prefer to keep Keenum as the veteran clipboard-holder, but he's also the one other teams would probably rather acquire. Foles was atrocious last season and has a bad contract. The Rams would likely take a late-rounder for either player.
Apr 29 - 3:07 PM

Rams re-signed QB Case Keenum to a one-year, $3.635 million contract.

Keenum was laughably tendered at the first-round level as the Rams pretended he would be their 2016 starter, but that's out the window now after their daring trade up to No. 1 overall. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has speculated Keenum could be a trade candidate, but it's unlikely at that salary. Keenum will caddie for whichever signal caller the Rams make the first pick of the draft, perhaps starting the first few games of the season.
Apr 18 - 1:56 PM

9 News Denver's Mike Klis believes the Broncos "might" have interest in restricted free agent Case Keenum after Los Angeles acquired the No. 1 overall draft pick from Tennessee.

The Rams may make Keenum available after securing the rights to draft Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. Keenum is currently under Los Angeles' control via a first-round tender. Broncos coach Gary Kubiak coached Keenum in Houston. In order to execute a trade for Keenum, Denver would have to part with second- to third-day draft pick and sign him to a reasonable contract. This would presumably be a fallback option if the Broncos can't land Colin Kaepernick.
Apr 14 - 2:15 PM

Rams coach Jeff Fisher is "confident" the team can win with Case Keenum at quarterback.

"I feel good with Case," Fisher said. Fisher pointed to the fact that Keenum was a "field goal away" from a four-game winning streak at the end of last season, which, of course, presupposes that Keenum was a major factor in those wins. Although he was not an outright liability, Keenum was hardly an asset. Despite his claims of faith in Keenum, Fisher also said "we're going to give Nick (Foles) a chance to compete as well," and admitted "it's a position we need to upgrade." Quarterback is a strong possibility for the Rams at No. 15 in the draft.

Rams GM Les Snead said Case Keenum will be "our starting quarterback."

As ridiculous as the commitment to Keenum has been, this is not surprising news. The Rams failed to add a quarterback in free agency despite plenty of money and opportunity, and they are not in a position to grab either of the top quarterbacks in the draft. With 7-9 as the annual goal, the Rams are in a good position with Keenum under center.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner said "it doesn't appear" the Rams are interested in adding a veteran quarterback this offseason.

Despite having a ton of cap space and several veterans available, the Rams made no effort to add to their quarterback group in free agency. The organization apparently believes Case Keenum can be the answer under center, and they slapped a first-round tender on the backup-level quarterback. Unless they are slow playing a potential move for one of the top quarterbacks in the draft, the Rams are staring at yet another mediocre season.

The Rams extended a first-round tender to restricted free agent QB Case Keenum.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Broncos were "lurking" on Keenum after losing Brock Osweiler to the Texans. The first-round tender will pay Keenum $3.635 million. No team is giving a first-rounder for him.
Mar 9 - 3:22 PM

Case Keenum said Rams coaches are "treating him as the starter."

He became the Rams' default starter when Nick Foles imploded halfway through last season. The Rams have been linked to several quarterbacks, including Robert Griffin III, Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick. Top draft prospects Carson Wentz and Jared Goff should be long gone by the Rams' No. 15 overall pick.
Mar 4 - 4:36 PM

ESPN’s Nick Wagoner expects the Rams to give restricted free agent Case Keenum a second-round tender.

The Rams don’t want to risk losing Keenum on a low tender. Keenum enters the offseason as the Rams starter, but will face competition in training camp. A second-round tender would pay Keenum $2.55 million.

Feb 27 - 2:37 PM

Rams GM Les Snead said restricted free agent QB Case Keenum will be back with the team.

"We're not going to let him go somewhere else," Snead said. Coach Jeff Fisher admitted as much when he said Keenum would enter the offseason as the starter. Despite the presence of Keenum and Nick Foles, the Rams should be looking long and hard at the quarterback prospects. A Keenum-Foles training camp battle is not the way to start the first season back in Los Angeles.
Jan 30 - 9:37 AM

Coach Jeff Fisher said Case Keenum is entering the offseason as the Rams' starting quarterback.

Nick Foles will have to "compete for the job," and the Rams will also keep an eye on the quarterbacks that become available this offseason. Keenum really wasn't much, if any, better than Foles after replacing him in Week 11, so we can't see any way either of the two is the 2016 starter come Week 1. But this is the Rams. The Rams' priority has to be finding even just an average quarterback after ranking 32nd in passing offense. Todd Gurley can't do it all.
Jan 4 - 6:35 PM

Case Keenum completed 22-of-37 passes for 231 yards in the Rams' Week 17 loss to San Francisco.

Keenum was brutally inaccurate against the 49ers, and also showed a tendency to not be willing to pull the trigger on potential big passing plays down field. Ultimately, Keenum was not a whole lot better than Nick Foles down the stretch. An impending restricted free agent, Keenum isn't worth tendering at the second-round level, which would be his required compensation unless the Rams were willing to lose him to an offer sheet. Keenum is a former undrafted free agent.
Jan 3 - 8:53 PM

Case Keenum completed 14-of-23 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 16 win over the Seahawks.

Keenum managed the game, but took a break in the second quarter, where he found Kenny Britt for a 28-yard touchdown on Richard Sherman of all people. Britt ran right by Sherman down the right sideline. Keenum is proving to be a huge improvement on Nick Foles, but it isn't translating to anything other than last-gasp QB2 value. He won't be a recommended DFS play against the 49ers in Week 17.
