Former Redskins' QB Kirk Cousins likely to sign with Vikings

Adrian Peterson Jordy Nelson cut Brees stays with Saints

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Cousins is set to sign a fully guaranteed contract worth close to $84 million over the three years.

Cousins will reportedly have dinner with Vikings coaches and other essential personnel on Wednesday before visiting the team's new facility on Thursday, by which point he is expected to officially sign.

The Jets have the most cap space in the National Football League entering free agency at a touch under $90 million and could match any offer the Vikings make - or any other team, for that matter. Washington made it clear Cousins was not in their long-term plans this offseason when the team traded cornerback Kendall Fuller and a third round draft pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for quarterback Alex Smith.

With the Broncos, Vikings, Cardinals and Jets apparently no longer looking for a No. 1 quarterback, the Buffalo Bills appeared to be the only team in the market for a starter.

Soon, Kirk Cousins' ties to the Washington Redskins will be a thing of the past. "The plan is to visit Minnesota first".

Twitch's new program gives Amazon Prime subscribers free games
Twitch announced Tuesday that, starting on Thursday, those customers would get a pair of free games, Superhot and Oxenfree . So if you aren't a Twitch Prime member yet, perhaps now might be a good time to consider signing up.

Just in 2017 Cousins went 7-9 as the starter in Washington. He finished with 4,093 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2017 and he has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdown passes in each of the past three seasons.

According to CBS Sports analyst Bryant McFadden on Twitter, Bridgewater is finalizing a deal that will make him a member of the New York Jets.

If Cousins likes Minnesota's pitch, then Arizona would need to move forward by setting up meetings and physicals with a second-tier of quarterback options: Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown. Rodgers can't backtrack and make Cousins the exception to the rule.

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 had three 4,000-yard seasons with the Redskins. The 11-time Pro Bowler led the Saints to victory in Super Bowl XLIV, a championship loaded with symbolism as New Orleans recovered from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina five years earlier.
