e scrutiny as a professio

Case Keenum couldn't wait to get out of Minnesota.

No Authentic Dak Prescott Jersey , he's not bitter over the Vikings' decision to move on to Kirk Cousins.

And he isn't gloating over being "the man " for the first time in his NFL career after signing a two-year, $36 million deal last month in Denver.

He's just glad to see some sunshine, that's all.

Before coming to Colorado for the Broncos' offseason program, Keenum made a stop in Minneapolis to accept the "Uncommon Award" from Tony Dungy at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska on Friday.

The only downer was the blizzard that struck the nation's midsection.

"It dumped like 25 inches on us," Keenum said. "So, I was ready to get out of there and get to Denver and the sunshine."

Keenum is entering the season as the starter for the first time in his six-year career after coach Vance Joseph declared him the Broncos' No. 1 QB at the free agent's introductory news conference a month ago.

Yet, Keenum's role beyond 2018 remains up in the mile-high air because general manager John Elway could still use the fifth overall pick in next week's NFL draft to select a quarterback.

Elway and his lieutenants have taken long, hard looks at this year's college crop of QBs, including the "Big Four " prospects. They hosted Baker Mayfield on Monday but Keenum said he hadn't run into him.

Keenum also insists he isn't concerned that he'll soon be tutoring his successor should Elway choose a quarterback.

"I'm excited for whoever's going to come in and make us better," Keenum said. "That's what competition breeds within your own team. I think it makes you better. So, whoever comes in I'll be looking for them to help us be a better football team. No matter what position it is. I know they're going to draft a lot of positions. It doesn't change my mindset at all."

Yet, non-QB blue chippers such as Penn State running back Saquon Barkley Authentic Drew Brees Jersey , North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb or Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson would provide immediate help for Keenum this season and maybe even stability for his future.

Von Miller has said he'd love to have Chubb lining up next to him.

"He's Khalil Mack and Von Miller put together," Miller said with a laugh. "He is a great player and I would love to have him on my team. You don't come across guys like that often. We don't (normally) have the No. 5 pick in the draft. I hope we don't have a high pick like that for a while. So if we can steal a player like that, I'm all for it."

When Keenum reported to work Monday, it marked the first time he'd been the unquestioned starting quarterback since his final days at the University of Houston, where he set NCAA passing records but still went undrafted before compiling a 20-18 record with the Vikings, Rams and Texans.

"It feels good, it does," Keenum said. "It's not something where I feel like I've made it. That's not ever my mentality. I'm going to stay hungry.

"Nothing's ever been handed to me. I've earned that right, and I'm going to continue to earn that right being in this building, in the weight room, meeting room, practice field and then on game day."

The Broncos' anemic offense was a big reason for their slide to 5-11 last season Youth Alejandro Villanueva Jersey , just two years after they won the Super Bowl, and Elway's makeover includes the arrival of right tackle Jared Veldheer and the departure of running back C.J. Anderson on Monday.

Anderson could have provided a valuable sounding board to Keenum much like he did with Peyton Manning, Brock Osweiler and Trevor Siemian.

"It doesn't change me and my mindset and what I'm prepared to do here and what I want to do here, what I feel like I need to do," Keenum said. "I know that NFL teams change constantly. So, I'm here right now, just trying to get into the building and just become familiar with everything."

For now, the Broncos' quarterback room also includes holdovers Paxton Lynch, a first-rounder in 2016 who so far has flopped, and Chad Kelly, last year's Mr. Irrelevant who spent his rookie season on IR.

Keenum said his interactions with Lynch and Kelly have been good so far.

"We've got a great quarterback room, and I appreciate that because I've been in some other quarterback rooms that haven't been Matthew Stafford Jersey White ," Keenum said.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Rookie wide receiver Antonio Callaway has been warned by the Browns to run straight routes off the field.

Callaway, who came to Cleveland with a troubled background, was cited last week for marijuana possession and driving with a suspended license.

The fourth-round pick didn’t inform the team for several days, but in a meeting shown on HBO’s “Hard Knocks” on Tuesday night, both coach Hue Jackson and general manager John Dorsey told Callaway they were disappointed in him and cautioned him to change his behavior.

After Callaway explained details of the traffic stop, Jackson told the 21-year-old that things have to change.

“Now listen, you’ve got talent but talent ain’t everything I’m looking for,” Jackson said. “I want you to become a man here, and responsible and accountable to John and me, this organization and your teammates — or else I wouldn’t keep you on this team. I’m just being very honest with you. If (stuff) comes up, you have my number and you got John’s number. You call us ASAP. That’s what I expect from you from here on in.”

Callaway was suspended last season at Florida following his involvement in a credit card fraud scheme. He had other transgressions in college and he fell in the NFL draft after providing a diluted urine sample at the combine.

The Browns took a chance selecting him and their gamble appeared doomed when Callaway got into trouble on a recent off day from training camp. However, Jackson said he believed Callaway’s account of his traffic stop and he told Cleveland’s players that he intends to support him.

During the “Hard Knocks” episode Stefon Diggs Jersey Big , Jackson brings Callaway to the front of the room to apologize to his teammates.

“It won’t happen no more,” he said.

Dorsey explained to Callaway that he’s going to be under more scrutiny as a professional athlete.

“This isn’t college football,” Dorsey told Callaway at the meeting with Jackson. “This is the National Football League and just to put it out there plainly, you are under the microscope. They want to see you (mess) up. You know what, but you gotta prove to them, you know what? I’m a man. I’ve learned from my past. I’ve learned from my mistakes and we are moving forward.”

The Browns punished Callaway by making him play in every snap of last week’s game against the New York Giants. He flashed some of his skills with a touchdown and several nice catches.

During the game, offensive coordinator Todd Haley asked Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry to take Callaway under his wing.

“You need to take that kid on,” Haley said. “I don’t care if he’s living at your house.”
