It was quicker than the typical Minnesota goodbye, but Case Keenum's message to Minnesota after signing with the Denver Broncos came from his heart Wednesday afternoon. 

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you Minnesota," Keenum wrote in a tweet. "Some of the most incredible, crazy, miraculous moments of my life happened this past year. Couldn't of happened without y'all. Made this Texas boy feel right at home."

Keenum passed for more than 3,500 yards with 22 touchdowns while leading the Vikings to 11 wins in 14 starts after Sam Bradford suffered a knee injury in Week 1.
