The Denver Broncos' decision to trade for Joe Flacco came as a surprise to Case Keenum.

Keenum signed a two-year, $36 million deal with the Broncos last offseason.

"[Broncos general manager John] Elway called me that morning and we had a great conversation, which he didn't have to do, and I appreciated that," said Keenum, who, along with his wife, Kimberly, was a guest on Jason Romano's Sports Spectrum podcast.

"I was definitely shocked. It was a surprise for us; you know, I think probably for the first day or so that's kind of what it was. You know, for us, we're definitely disappointed. It's not something we wanted to happen. I know that everybody's doing their job and John feels like that was a chance for him to help the Broncos out.''
