Cousins Plans to Sign with Vikings Thursday

Cousins Plans to Sign with Vikings Thursday

His market will likely come down to the Vikings, Jets or possibly the Cardinals.

Free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins will sign with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday.

According to multiple reports, Cousins is signing a three-year contract that is fully guaranteed, with the total value being around $86 million.

Mike Zimmer treaded carefully every step of the way in 2017, refusing to put all his eggs into Keenum's basket despite the uncertainty with Bradford's knee injury and questions of whether Teddy Bridgewater would be the same quarterback he was before his own devastating knee injury.

Chances of Keenum staying in Minnesota keeps on lowering, even though he threw for a whopping 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns last season.

Meanwhile, McCown is 38 and coming off a broken hand that ended his year with the New York Jets after Week 14.

The Eagles, who signed Bradford to a contract extension after 2015, were reportedly interested in bringing Cousins to Philadelphia if the Redskins had decided not to franchise tag him.

This time, the 'Noles would be playing a No. 1 regional seed if they advance and Xavier wins its first-round game. Missouri forward Jordan Barnett could be in a lot of trouble just a few days before the NCAA Tournament begins.

Cousins and the Vikings will have to wait until Wednesday for free agency to officially start in order to make it official. But it's since been circulated that Arizona is one of four remaining teams in the hunt for Cousins.

The Vikings found success in 2017 with Case Keenum at quarterback but by all indications, they viewed him as a good backup. Robby Anderson, whose future with the team could be in doubt after a number of off-field issues, was the team's surprising leading receiver past year.

Such a deal is the first of its kind in NFL history and will make Cousins the highest paid quarterback in the league barely over a month after the 49ers gave that distinction to their quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo.

Well Mickey, I'd say the important thing to consider now is that the "legal tampering" period begins tomorrow, and you and the Saints still haven't locked-up Drew Brees.

The Broncos know two of those more than the others - Allen and Mayfield - thanks to a week of coaching them at the Senior Bowl in Alabama in January. The Jets, meanwhile, offer a clean slate, cap space, and potentially $60 million in the first year.

At the scouting combine, the former Washington Redskins quarterback - who could become the game's highest paid player within a few days - was a topic of discussion. Cousins didn't seem to want to negotiate with Washington, so they replaced him with Alex Smith.

After trading veteran cornerback Aqib Talib to Los Angeles, the Broncos also have a glaring need for depth on the back end of their defense.
