Cousins to visit Vikings first and deal is expected

Report 2 teams ready to offer Kirk Cousins fully guaranteed contracts

All three of the Minnesota Vikings' free-agent quarterbacks apparently have found new homes. Betting odds are one thing for bookkeepers; in Minnesota, the Vikings couldn't afford to play the wrong hand with Cousins and strike out on their most critical decision in years. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury.

The New York Jets also have been in the mix for Cousins, who has passed for 4,000 or more yards each season since becoming Washington's starter in 2015. He also sneakily adds something as a runner, with 13 rushing scores over those three seasons. The Saints kept Brees off the market by signing him to what was announced as a two-year, $50 million contract that the quarterback said was really a one-year deal for $27 million with a team option for a second season. Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles' new extension, three years and $54 million with $26.5 million guaranteed, appears to be an apt comparison. Last season Detroit's Matt Stafford became the highest paid signal-caller in the league when he signed a $135 million deal.

If Cousins puts up the same kind of numbers that Case Keenum did for the Vikings in 2017, it might be hard to keep Minnesota from reaching the Super Bowl. 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. Keenum had a career-year, performing like one of the league's best quarterbacks with better than a 3:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and a 98.3 passer rating. Cousins is coming out from under the umbrella of a favorable scheme in Washington, so will that affect how many opportunities he has with open receivers running free?

The document also notes that people associate the £50 note with money laundering, tax evasion, and criminal activity. The Treasury document states the UK's highest-value note is "believed to be rarely used for routine purchases".

Bradford has had a very interesting National Football League career for a top-pick quarterback that is far from a bust, but can't quite stick with one situation. It's a good day for the Patriots, who will host Cousins and the Vikings next season.

Keenum is a player the Broncos know well because Gary Kubiak, now the Broncos' senior personnel adviser, coached him for two seasons while he was head coach of the Houston Texans. New England picked Wilson in the second round in 2012 and the former IL star played in 54 games, starting four, over four years with them. Keenum is headed to the Denver Broncos. There aren't many other obvious situations (Chiefs, Cardinals maybe?) where he could even expect to be in a camp competition for a starter's job. "At least one other team will do a similar deal almost fully guaranteed". He could pair with McCown in NY or Bradford in Arizona very neatly.
