Teddy Bridgewater, New York Jets working on deal

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is poised to become the highest-paid quarterback in the National Football League by signing a three-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, multiple United States media reports said Tuesday. That's $28.6 million per year, again, fully guaranteed.

The landmark deal will make Cousins the highest-paid quarterback in the league.

Keenum's career began in 2014 in Houston and last played for the Minnesota Vikings in 2017, where they clinched a spot in the NFC Championship with their best regular season record since 1998, 13-3.

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

Then, yesterday, as pointed out locally by 104.3 The Fan's Zak Bye, Cousin penned a goodbye blog to Washington fans that tagged the Jets and the Vikings, but not the Broncos.


Four days after the Browns dropped out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes by trading for Tyrod Taylor, the Broncos appear to have followed suit. NFL Network reported that the deal is for $86 million. Cousins's first visit will apparently be his last. After a long recovery, he returned to the field midway through the 2017 season and served as the backup for Case Keenum. Rodgers can't backtrack and make Cousins the exception to the rule. No matter who the Jets pick, they'll need to cultivate a good young quarterback, something they have failed to do for years.

Vikings quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford, like Keenum, are free agents. Cousins only got the team to the postseason once in three years as the starter, and the team lost the one playoff game they had.

In three years as the starter in Washington, Cousins threw for 13,176 yards, 81 touchdowns and 36 interceptions while completing 67 percent of his passes.

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. Over that same span, Cousins is averaging 27 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, and 4,400 yards a season. He started nine games in his first three seasons.
