The Denver Broncos pulled off the first blockbuster trade of the year on Wednesday, acquiring quarterback Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens.

While the addition of Flacco does not preclude the Broncos from taking a quarterback in the 2019 NFL Draft, it does call into question the future of Case Keenum, who took over under center for Denver in 2018.

Keenum currently has one year remaining on his deal, but will undoubtedly want out of Denver with Flacco inbound and a rookie quarterback still possible.

So, what might that mean for the New York Giants?

In addition to removing a team from the potential Nick Foles chase, it also essentially puts Keenum on the market. And considering the Giants are seeking an eventual replacement to Eli Manning, they could take a flier on Keenum, who had a career season with the Minnesota Vikings under then-offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.

That season, Keenum completed 67.2 percent of his passes while posting career-highs in passer-rating (98.3) and QBR (74.3). He finished with a record (as starter) of 11-3.

But does Keenum to the Giants really make sense? The short answer is no, but the speculation has already begun nonetheless.

Because the narrative is established that the Giants need a quarterback, every one that becomes available will lead to a debate and speculation. However, Manning will remain the starter in 2019 no matter what the team does, so at $18 million — assuming they traded for him — Keenum hardly seems worth it. Add in the fact that they’d have to give up a draft pick and the possibility of bringing him on becomes even less likely.

If the Giants do deem it completely necessary to find a quarterback this offseason, it will likely come by way of the NFL Draft and not a trade or free agency. Either way, the next incoming quarterback will have to ride the pine behind Manning while competing with Kyle Lauletta for the No. 2 spot.
