Kirk Cousins contract details released

Kirk Cousins contract details released

Free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins is planning to sign a three-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Keenum was 11-3 as a starter last season for the 13-3 Vikings.

It's exceedingly rare for an elite QB to move teams as a free agent, especially in the prime of their careers, but such a move would give them more leverage in contract negotiations.

Vikings quarterback Case Keenum, the Abilene Wylie graduate, will undergo an extremely important free agency period this upcoming week, where Minnesota will act as the puppeteers for his future. That shatters the average annual value of $28 million the Vikings are offering.

The popular theory all along is that even if the Vikings get Cousins they'll still only have the 3rd best quarterback in the division, behind Aaron Rogers in Green Bay and Matthew Stafford in Detroit. However, NFL Media reported Tuesday that Brees will get a two-year, $50 million deal to return to New Orleans.

WCCO in Minneapolis is reporting that Kirk Cousins will sign with the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday. But the move does not strap the Vikings salary cap-wise this year and it had to be made, in line with a short window to win at a high level as the roster is now otherwise constructed. The Broncos were blighted by poor quarterback play last season, with Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, and Paxton Lynch all failing to impress.

Signing Keenum now opens the door for the Broncos to pass on a quarterback and trade down out of the No. 5 spot, which could result in a QB-needy team jumping ahead of the Jets in the draft.

And just as folks once used to add up former Denver coach Mike Shanahan's statistics "without John Elway", Elway now finds himself sometimes being measured as a team executive for what has happened "without Peyton Manning".

But you have to read to the end - all the way down, in fact. He started every game the past three seasons, leading Washington to the playoffs in 2015 - his only postseason appearance. That's what made this off-season situation so wonderful, as the Vikings basically had their pick of what appeared to be three different franchise quality quarterbacks. Sam Bradford and Case Keenum might be options for Buffalo. But if the Broncos stay healthy on defense and Keenum is who they hope he can be, they can compete for the division title. That's why they rushed him back against the Bears despite Keenum's good play last season. The Chargers should lead the pack, followed by a rejuvenated Raiders team with Gruden lighting fires under certain players, and then, perhaps the Broncos, but mostly due to their defense.
