Kirk Cousins to make decision on new team this week

Kirk Cousins to make decision on new team this week

"I can tell you what I heard over and over again", an agent said at the combine, "is that this will go down in history as what not to do with your quarterback". Secondly, it was Kirk Cousins intending to sign with the Vikings.

If the Cousins contract is indeed finalized, he'll be the eighth quarterback to start a season opener for the Vikings in the last nine years.

That puts the Arizona Cardinals behind the eight-ball in their search for a starting quarterback.

This move also effectively means that the Vikings are moving on from both Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford, who could both have an active market for their services for a few of the quarterback-needy teams in free agency. The Jets, on the other hand, went 5-11 last season and will therefore pick sixth in the upcoming NFL Draft. Bridgewater wants no more than a one-year, make-good contract to prove he's ready after essentially missing the past two seasons with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, McCown is 38 and coming off a broken hand that ended his year with the New York Jets after Week 14. Theismann, who predicts Keenum will join the Broncos, pointed to Vikings coach Mike Zimmer continuing to say last season that he was the starter only on a week-to-week basis.

The fact the Vikings chose to turn to Cousins isn't a big surprise. But is he the franchise quarterback these teams so desperately need?




Vikings quarterback Case Keenum, the Abilene Wylie graduate, will undergo an extremely important free agency period this upcoming week, where Minnesota will act as the puppeteers for his future. The Broncos' offensive line was upgraded last year with the addition of left tackle Garett Bolles, but protection on the right side of the line has been an issue for years and there is no clear starter at right tackle.

Cousins initially tagged the Vikings and the Jets at the bottom of the letter, but swiftly removed any reference to his suitors.

WELCOME TO MINNESOTA: Vikings Pro Bowl cornerback welcomed Cousins to Minnesota with a tweet, but made sure to let him know it will still be "Rhodes Closed" in practice.

Leave it to the National Football League to officially designate a time period for teams, players and agents to officially break rules they've most likely already been breaking. for at least the past few weeks. Not "worth up to" $84 million, but $84 million fully guaranteed.

Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing". By the time Brees new contract expires, he could very well be the NFL's all-time leader in yards and touchdowns passing.
