Former Redskins' QB Kirk Cousins likely to sign with Vikings

Report Kirk Cousins likely to sign with Vikings

That amounts to $28 million per year.

Cousins has thrown for at least 25 touchdowns, 4,000 yards and a 93.9 passer rating in every year since 2015.

Even at 34 years of age, Williams has proven that he still has plenty of football left to be played.

The Jets are also interested in Teddy Bridgewater, who missed almost two seasons with a knee injury. That said, he also said two teams are prepared to offer Cousins a fully guaranteed deal and that Cousins might not make a final decision on the first day of free agency.

When Bridgwater was last seen in significant action, he completed over 65 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns as the Minnesota Vikings won the NFC North and almost (should have?) won a playoff game in 2015. If New York misses on Cousins, it will have to turn its attention to the draft while also considering the addition of a veteran quarterback like Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater.

Cousins was drafted 102nd overall in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Keenum led the Vikings to a magical season, and yet they refused to commit to him, choosing instead to pursue Cousins.


The deal can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. According to ESPN, the Cardinals and Jets are expecting Cousins to sign with the Vikings.

The Denver Broncos have not wasted much time to land their new starting quarterback in free agency.

In his one full season as a starter, Bridgewater completed 65.3 percent of his passes for 3,231 yards, 14 touchdowns and 9 interceptions while leading the Vikings to an 11-5 record and a division title.

Siemian again handily beat out Lynch last summer, but the Broncos would cycle through their trio of homegrown QBs during a 5-11 season that almost cost rookie head coach Vance Joseph his job.

Assuming Cousins, who turns 30 on August 19, signs with the Vikings and starts in Week 1 of the regular season, he would be the Vikings' sixth different opening day starter in seven years at quarterback.

NFL Media reported Monday that the Vikings put in a call to Drew Brees' agent Monday to express interest in future hall of fame quarterback.
