Kirk Cousins plans to sign with Minnesota Vikings, reports say

And while there were other teams interested in him, teams really had to sweeten the pot for Kirk to sign with them. By the time there was a desire on the Redskins' part that December, it was too late, and Cousins was eyeing free agency or the franchise tag. What the Vikings got on their end from this deal was short-term stability rooted in a quarterback who filled in admirably for an injured Sam Bradford and did more than just right the ship.

- It looks like the Minnesota Vikings' three free agent quarterbacks will all have new teams in 2018. So that affects the money available to retain some of their own free agents. He entered Minnesota's Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals this past season, during which received a standing ovation, but Case Keenum already had solidified himself as the Vikings' starting quarterback by that point.

With their starting quarterback locked up, the Broncos could strike a deal with a quarterback-needy team to move out of the top five in the draft and secure additional picks.

Along with the Vikings, the New York Jets, Denver Broncos, and Arizona Cardinals are expected to be contenders is the Cousins sweepstakes, according to Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com. Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything.

Minnesota reached the NFC Championship Game on one of the great plays in National Football League history against the Saints in the divisional round.

If that is the case, hopefully they have begun their backup protocol.

Bridgewater would command far less of a salary than Cousins or Keenum.

The free agent quarterback is on the verge of a big payday at age 29, his first time on the open market. When Bradford's season ended after an injury in Week 2, Keenum took over.

"Cousins went out and did it", the former executive said. On Sunday, he tweeted a picture of a plane, a nod to his "Jet" nickname, and wrote, "Coming to a city near you". That amounts to $28 million per year. Rapoport reports the deal is worth $86 million. Last season, he led the Saints to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs and did it with a stronger defense as well as a pair of incredibly talented running backs. Teams can not legally make their pitches or offers to free agents until that time period, but they are now allowed to speak with them.

Another cornerback also could come in handy. Mayowa, 26, had one sack and 13 tackles while playing in 13 games for the Cowboys last season.

One would have been the attractiveness of finally finding a quarterback who will be expected to start for three seasons.
