Buffalo Bills 2023 Free Agent Profile: Case Keenum
The Buffalo Bills last offseason had to find a new backup quarterback after Mitchell Trubisky signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers. General manager Brandon Beane decided the best way to address this need was in a trade and they were able to acquire Case Keenum from the Cleveland Browns for a seventh round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
This offseason, the Bills once again find themselves in a situation where they need to address their backup quarterback position again as Case Keenum is set to be a free agent. Let’s take a closer look at the player and determine if the Bills should re-sign him.
Case Keenum’s Career Stats
Case Keenum has played 10 years in the NFL with seven franchises, appearing in 78 games and starting 64. He has a career record of 29-35 with his best season as a starter occurring in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings when he went 11-3 and helped the Vikings win a playoff game with the Minneapolis Miracle.
This past season, Keenum appeared in only two games against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2 and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5. Both appearances were late in the game with the Bills up big in both games. He would attempt only seven passes, completing two of them for eight yards total.
Should the Buffalo Bills re-sign Case Keenum?
Case Keenum will be turning 35 prior to the 2023 season and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him retire. However, if he does decide to return for another season the Buffalo Bills should be interested in bringing him back on a one-year deal.
After spending this past season with the Bills, he knows Ken Dorsey’s offense and if the need were to arise then he could step in without likely much of a learning curve. This is a move that should get done sooner rather than later and the Bills can check off one key need this offseason.
