Kirk Cousins intends to sign with the Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins intends to sign with the Minnesota Vikings

That deal is expected to be for three years and $84 million, a "landmark" that would make Cousins the highest-paid quarterback in the league, according to sources.

The New York Jets will make a push to sign free-agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with Kirk Cousins likely to land with the Minnesota Vikings, ESPN.com's Dianna Russini reported Tuesday. Remember, Keenum is going into a new system with a different team. 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.

As for the Broncos, they had a quarterback carousel in 2017. If he views Keenum as the starter long-term, Elway would be in a strong position to trade out of the number five pick. If Bradford could stay healthy I do believe that they'd have kept him this off-season.

While not all are sold on the idea of Kirk Cousins being a franchise quarterback, most experts admit that he's a far better option behind center than a guy like Keenum.

School violence remembered as thousands of shoes placed before US Congress
The Parkers were among the dozens of volunteers at the Capitol calling on Congress to take action. Among the thousands of shoes, a pair of turquoise blue cowboy boots stood out.

Keenum's arrival means Paxton Lynch is expected to return as a backup with competition from Chad Kelly and a potential draft choice - that has not been ruled out - as Denver plans on trading Trevor Siemian.

Those have been two of the teams most connected to Cousins for his next landing spot, along with the Denver Broncos. The quarterback led the Redskins to the postseason in the 2015 season, but he has no career playoff wins. Cousins responded by again breaking the franchise record with 4,917 passing yards to go along with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and a Pro Bowl berth. They are expected to sign the veteran when free agency opens on Wednesday, per an National Football League source.

It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get. They will pick fifth overall in this year's draft and could go after defensive end Bradley Chubb, running back Saquon Barkley or guard Quenton Nelson. Washington moved on from Cousins, but only after it became clear he wasn't going to sign long term and they had secured his replacement in Alex Smith. That's why they rushed him back against the Bears despite Keenum's good play last season. If he wants the money AND the opportunity to play on a team that's ready to contend right now, then, the Vikings are the obvious choice.
