None is the answer. It doesn't matter if Keenum is signed to a one year or 2 year contract. He has to make the team to earn the contract. If Keenum had signed a one year deal, made the team in 2013, he would be an exclusive free agent in 2014. There's nothing special about any of these signings, other than the attention paid to them in this thread.
