QB Keenum agrees to deal with Broncos

Cousins is sacked by Von Miller

Cousins is sacked by Von Miller

Kirk Cousins is finally set to hit the free agent market.

Things had begun to progressively pick up on that front with the Vikings remaining at the top of the list as the most likely landing spot for the 29-year-old. The 2015 Pro Bowl selection says he intends to sign a three-year, $42 million contract.

The Vikings have offered the free agent quarterback a three-year, $86 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

That puts the Arizona Cardinals behind the eight-ball in their search for a starting quarterback. But they would mean backing up with a young quarterback prospect with the No. 5 overall draft pick. The 2012 fourth round pick finished a year ago 347-540 for 4,093 yards and 27 touchdowns to 13 interceptions. Bridgewater, who suffered a serious knee injury in the final preseason practice of 2016, has played in just one game the past two years and Bradford, bothered by a knee injury, played in just two games last season.

It was not clear in Wang's comments which parties might be insincere about coming to a solution - possibly all of them. China has responded positively to the developments, as one would expect.

Meanwhile, McCown is 38 and coming off a broken hand that ended his year with the New York Jets after Week 14. The Vikings, though, would be betting on Cousins' ability to command a talented supporting cast and join with the NFL's top-ranked defense to make them regular NFC contenders.

The Vikings are banking on this being his last trip, too. Other teams such as the Denver Broncos are also looking for a franchise quarterback and they could take shots at Brees and Cousins as well. Going 5-8 as a starter while putting up a career-high 2,926 yards and 18 interceptions captained NY to a 5-8 record as a starter, a surprising mark for a team expected to compete with the winless Cleveland Browns for the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He replaces Case Keenum, who reportedly agreed to a deal with the Broncos on Monday, as the starter in Minnesota. He could command a deal worth $30 million to $35 million per season. Robby Anderson, whose future with the team could be in doubt after a number of off-field issues, was the team's surprising leading receiver previous year.

Kirk Cousins, who spent his first six National Football League seasons with the Washington Redskins, is the top free-agent quarterback available (not counting Drew Brees, who is expected to remain in New Orleans). What the Vikings got on their end from this deal was short-term stability rooted in a quarterback who filled in admirably for an injured Sam Bradford and did more than just right the ship. Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything.

"I saw him at the Senior Bowl, but I didn't get a chance to talk to him", Elway said of Mayfield.
