The Minnesota Vikings will be the team to pony up, with multiple reports pointing to a three-year deal worth in the neighborhood of $28 million once it can officially be done.

Reports say the Minnesota Vikings will sign free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to a three-year deal for $86 million...

Brees, 39, wants to finish his career in New Orleans, where he has played since 2006, won a Super Bowl and led one of the most productive offenses in the NFL. This was once Teddy Bridgewater's Vikings team before he suffered a devastating knee injury two seasons ago.

As much as I like Case Keenum, and as much as I like the quarterbacks in this year's draft class, I don't really like the idea of one of them sitting on the bench for the Broncos. Cousins earned 4093 passing yards, throwing for 27 touchdowns while also throwing 13 interceptions. In doing so, Cousins doesn't just take the mantle of the league's highest-paid player from San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo after about a month - he becomes the first player in NFL history to negotiate a fully-guaranteed contract. Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' new extension, three years and $54 million with $26.5 million guaranteed, appears to be an apt comparison.

One can only imagine the rage and disappointment of the fan base if Maccagnan fails to land a top free agent quarterback and resorts to bringing in someone that is more hope than reality. Most importantly, it's a win for Cousins, whose self-confidence paid off in a big way.

Interest in Kirk Cousins is heating up, with the quarterback expected to get up to two visits soon from National Football League (NFL) teams. That's how oddsmakers are on Minnesota following the signing of Cousins. In addition to the finances, the Vikings' case was likely also helped by the fact that they are now one of the best teams in the league.

It's a potential effect of breaking the bank for a free agent and bidding farewell to multiple players who had been on the roster and in the locker room. He went 11-5 as the Vikings' starter in 2015, with 3,231 yards, 14 touchdowns, and nine picks.

McCown would be an excellent mentor for the draft pick quarterback, while offering insurance (as a proven leader and reasonably successful starter with the Jets in 2017) in case Bridgewater has trouble performing or staying healthy. They have a solid running game, some good young receivers and a dominating defense.

The move comes nearly immediately after it was reported that quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos at the official beginning of free agency Wednesday. Keenum is a better fit than most believe. Bradford is close to a deal with the Arizona Cardinals and Bridgewater was being targeted by the New York Jets.
