Free Agent Quarterback Cousins Chooses Vikings Over Jets

Free Agent Quarterback Cousins Chooses Vikings Over Jets

Free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins is predictably the top priority on Minnesota's offseason shopping list. Minnesota's Super Bowl odds have improved amid reports that the quarterback is likely to sign with the Vikings. This past season, Minnesota, with Case Keenum under center, advanced to NFC Championship game before losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. He was medically cleared to return to practice and, from Weeks 10-17, served as the backup to Case Keenum.

Cousins started every game the last three years in Washington, throwing for over four-thousand yards in each of them.

The contract would not only make Cousins the highest-paid player in the National Football League, but also the first to sign a top-tier, multiyear deal fully guaranteed.

Two people familiar with the contract say Drew Brees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with the New Orleans Saints.

The NFL has promoted Maryann Turcke to chief operating officer, making her the highest-ranking woman at the league offices. Guaranteed to stay soft no matter how many viking raids (or cycles in the washing machine) you put it through. While Bridgewater was healthy enough to be on the Vikings roster previous year, the consistent play of Case Keenum kept the former first round pick on the sidelines. The former Washington Redskins quarterback is set to meet with Vikings officials in Minnesota on Wednesday and Thursday, with an agreement expected shortly thereafter, barring any setbacks in negotiations, NFL Network reported.

The staffer went on: We realize we would not be getting a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback, and yes, we'd still have to make him the league's highest-paid player [$28.5 million annually, it turns out].

If the Vikings can eradicate some of Cousins' flaws and make him more consistent, they can be a force. We can live with that because, given our dominant defense, offensive supporting cast and coaching staff, we're one QB away from being, in our minds, the NFC's best team.

Bradford is also a free agent.

Coming up on his 39th birthday, and coming off a strong season with the Jets, McCown looks like a solid option for a team looking for a bridge quarterback to play while their draft pick gets ready. Cousins' record during that time: 24-23-1. He's played the complete schedule twice, missed the entire 2014 season and was limited to two games with the Vikings in 2017.

In the end though, for most players, it's about the best situation.

The Jets, on the other hand, have arguably one of the least talented rosters in the NFL. He could pair with McCown in NY or Bradford in Arizona very neatly. The New York Jets, Denver Broncos and the Arizona Cardinals were also the teams often linked, but the Vikings made the most sense.
