Vikings to Sign QB Kirk Cousins

Vikings to Sign QB Kirk Cousins

In addition to the three quarterbacks, Minnesota's unrestricted free agents are running back Jerick McKinnon, guard Joe Berger, cornerbacks Terence Newman, Marcus Sherels and Tramaine Brock, kicker Kai Forbath, defensive tackles Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen, wide receiver Michael Floyd and linebacker Emmanuel Lamur. I'm just ready for him to sign somewhere, anywhere, so we can move past all of the speculation and look toward the Vikings' future.

Schefter reports the deal will be for three years at $84 million fully guaranteed.

That puts the Arizona Cardinals behind the eight-ball in their search for a starting quarterback.

Both the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets have been reported to be in on the chase for Cousins.

Cousins threw for 4,093 yards and 27 touchdowns in 16 games last season, leading Washington to a 7-9 record and a third-place finish in the NFC East. Bridgewater, who suffered a serious knee injury in the final preseason practice of 2016, has played in just one game the past two years and Bradford, bothered by a knee injury, played in just two games last season. The Vikings had the money to add Cousins and they did it.

The main question about Keenum, then, is whether last season represented his true coming of age or if it was an anomaly. However with roughly over $89 Million in cap space, if they spend it wisely they could build around Kirk Cousins, making him the outspoken face of the franchise for contract's duration.

He wasn't expected to be the first domino to fall, but as the quarterback market began unfolding right here in Minnesota, Case Keenum's time with the Vikings is over.

Two people familiar with the contract say Drew Brees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with the New Orleans Saints. The Vikings' Super Bowl window isn't going to stay open for more than a handful of years, no matter who is lining up behind center.

He's likely to become the league's highest paid player ever, and according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, he could be in line to be the first player in league history to get a full guaranteed deal.

Lynch is under contract and 2017 seventh-round selection Chad Kelly, who is the nephew of Pro Football Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, is also on Denver's roster. If they can't land Cousins, the Broncos will draft a quarterback with their No. 5 pick. Keenum fell into the flawless system under former offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, surrounded by a ton of weapons on offense, an offensive line that allowed him the freedom to extend plays with his legs and with the support of the No. 1 defense in the NFL. They have not been the favorites and they might not even get the chance to speak with him.
