Vikings closing in on Kirk Cousins: Quarterback visiting Minnesota

SPORTS    
    
   Broncos plan is obvious Cousins or Keenum Keenum or Cousins

The Vikings landing Cousins could shift the balance of power in the NFC. He waited for Cousins to sign for this very reason.

Cousins' agent Mike McCartney declined to confirm the reports in remarks to ESPN on Tuesday.

With the understanding that the Vikings' QB decision - and specifically where Kirk Cousins is going to wind up - is dominating the hearts and minds of tons of Vikings fans, I'm going to attempt to round up all the pertinent information as we know it right now.

According to an NFL source, the Redskins quarterback will visit the Vikings on Wednesday and Thursday as the league year officially begins. Last season, in another tagged season, Cousins got 4,093 yards but threw for 27 TD's. He mistakenly tagged the Vikings and Jets in the note on his personal website before quickly removing them, further igniting the rumors of his top destination choices.

While technically eligible to be part of the free-agent quarterback class, Drew Brees was never thought to be leaving New Orleans, where he's been a 10-time Pro Bowler and is closing in on the National Football League record for career passing yards.

The Eagles, who signed Bradford to a contract extension after 2015, were reportedly interested in bringing Cousins to Philadelphia if the Redskins had decided not to franchise tag him.

Which version of Case Keenum are the Denver Broncos going to get - the player who we saw in Houston and St. Louis, or the player we saw a year ago in Minnesota?

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the offer is a three-year deal at $28 million per season for a total of $84 million.

Cousins joins a talented Vikings team that went into the offseason with a glut of talented quarterbacks.

And, for the Broncos, that list of quarterbacks in the post-Manning era will nearly certainly gain another name this year when the team drafts a quarterback with the No. 5 pick. So the Jets are working on a contract with ex-Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Washington will not face the Vikings during the 2018 regular season. It was easy to imagine the Broncos competing with Cousins at the helm, but instead, they signed Keenum to an undisclosed deal. No matter who the Jets pick, they'll need to cultivate a good young quarterback, something they have failed to do for years. Minnesota has a number of offensive weapons to entice Cousins to sign a deal, including Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and rookie running back Dalvin Cook.
