Kirk Cousins arrives to meet with Vikings

NFL off-season hots up with Cousins set for Vikings as Brees sticks with Saints Cousins will sign with Minnesota

NY is expected to sign the former Vikings quarterback to a one-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation. Such a deal is the first of its kind in NFL history and will make Cousins the highest paid quarterback in the league barely over a month after the 49ers gave that distinction to their quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. They spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the agreement has not been announced. Running back Dalvin Cook is recovering from a torn ACL but the pieces are in place on offense (and certainly on defense) for Cousins to help this team take that next step needed to get to the Super Bowl. "Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything". On his career Cousins has completed 1372 passes on 2096 attempts to accumulate 16,206 yards. That led to a big payday for a journeyman who had started eight games for the Houston Texans in 2013 and nine games for the Los Angeles Rams in 2016 before posting an 11-3 regular-season record as the Vikings' starter in 2017. He'll cash in with the Broncos. Cousins, widely regarded as the top quarterback on the free-agent market, was also being pursued by the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, and Broncos, among other suitors.

The Vikings chose to not toll Bridgewater's rookie contract, thus allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent.

"No final decisions have been made", Cousins' agent, Mike McCartney, said Tuesday. The Saints kept Brees off the market by signing him to what was announced as a two-year, $50 million contract that the quarterback said was really a one-year deal for $27 million with a team option for a second season.

Cousins, 29, did not sign a long-term deal with the Redskins and twice played under the franchise-player tag in Washington. NY also has shown interest in Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater and Arizona has done the same with Minnesota's Sam Bradford. Keenum's deal is expected to be for two years and at least $36 million, according to 9News Denver.

CB Patrick Robinson to sign with Saints
Robinson will always be remembered for his momentum-shifting pick six in the NFC Championship Game against the Minnesota Vikings . But Robinson would certainly represent an upgrade over Johnson Bademosi at cornerback and give them a reliable underneath corner.

Keenum would have veterans Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders as his targets in Denver after Elway chose not to release either of the expensive wide receivers.

The Vikings will reportedly sign Kirk Cousins later this week in a move that was probably the worst-kept secret in the NFL. The Chiefs have needed to pair a playmaking wideout with Tyreek Hill. Although he was excellent for the Vikings last season, he was surrounded by a very good team and had an undistinguished career bouncing around the league before arriving in Minnesota. They offered him a 3-year, $28M per year deal.

The Vikings have reached the playoffs in two of the last three years.

Though Keenum played well last season -- 22 touchdowns and 98.3 QB rating -- he was either putrid or mediocre in his previous six seasons.
