Cousins to Vikings, Keenum to Broncos while Jets seek Teddy

Cousins to Vikings, Keenum to Broncos while Jets seek Teddy

The biggest question of the National Football League off-season appears to be settled with ESPN reporting that Kirk Cousins plans to sign for the Minnesota Vikings on a three-year deal worth $84m later this week. McCown played on a one-year, $6 million contract with the Jets last season - and wound up surprising many observers with how well he performed. He is set become Denver's new starter at the position when free agency opens Wednesday and the deal becomes official, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Rather than placing Cousins on another one-year franchise tag, Washington agreed to a trade at the end of January with Kansas City to bring Alex Smith in has the new quarterback for the Redskins.

Bridgewater, who was drafted in the first round (32nd overall) by the Vikings in 2014, showed promise in his first two seasons but suffered a serious leg injury that sidelined him for all of 2016 and most of 2017.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins after the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins. The Vikings, ostensibly, would be signing Cousins - whose career record as a starter with the Redskins is 26-30-1 - because they believe he can take them a step further.

"Will only confirm they'll get the first visit", McCartney told the the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

With those numbers, Cousins represents an immediate upgrade from the Vikings' previous quarterback trio -- Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.

Tuesday afternoon, various reports from NFL Network and ESPN claim he is leaning towards signing with the Minnesota Vikings after visiting their facility on Thursday.

The quarterback reports started with the Denver Broncos attracting Case Keenum for a two-year, $36 million contract. Over that same span, Cousins is averaging 27 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, and 4,400 yards a season. However, next offseason there will be several talented, even Pro Bowl-caliber players in line for new deals.

Cousins is reportedly set to earn a total of $86m after agreeing to a three-year contact with the Vikings, enough for him to buy a new van.
