Cousins, Keenum on the move as National Football League market revs up

Cousins, Keenum on the move as National Football League market revs up

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, after numerous conflicting reports had come out, that the Minnesota Vikings and quarterback Kirk Cousins have agreed to a fully-guaranteed three year contract. Wilson eventually signed a four-year, $87.6 million extension but it wasn't fully guaranteed.

Last year's starter, Case Keenum, is expected to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency officially opens Wednesday afternoon.

The landmark deal will make Cousins the highest-paid quarterback in the league.

The Washington Redskins player will now move to the Minnesota Vikings, a team that were only one game away from appearing in the Superbowl, and will earn a cool $28m a year.

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins (8) runs off the field after game against Arizona Cardinals. According to Rapoport, Cousins will have dinner with Vikings coaches and other personnel Wednesday, night, then visit the team's new facility in Eagan on Thursday. "The plan is to visit Minnesota first". Since Favre's retirement in 2010, the Vikings have tried a bevy of quarterbacks from draft picks to free agent signings. They offered him a 3-year, $28M per year deal.

Dion Lewis to sign with Tennessee Titans
With the Patriots in 2017, Lewis carried the ball 180 times for 896 rushing yards and six touchdowns. The Patriots have James White, Mike Gillislee, and Brandon Bolden at running back.

First, it was news of Case Keenum intending to sign with the Denver Broncos. Sam Bradford is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals and Teddy Bridgewater has also been reported as finding a suitor for his services during the 2018 National Football League season.

There are actually reports out there that Cousins has already made his decision. He finished with 4,093 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions - and a Total QBR of 52.3, his lowest as the full-time starter.

Cousins had three 4,000-yard seasons with the Redskins.

Assuming Cousins, who turns 30 on August 19, signs with the Vikings and starts in Week 1 of the regular season, he would be the Vikings' sixth different opening day starter in seven years at quarterback. The 11-time Pro Bowler led the Saints to victory in Super Bowl XLIV, a championship loaded with symbolism as New Orleans recovered from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina five years earlier.
