Vikings closing in on signing Cousins to three-year deal


"Will only confirm they'll get the first visit", McCartney told the Pioneer Press. If they're right, and they use the extra cap space to add more to the offense as well as snag one of the draft's best players with the No. 5 overall pick, then Keenum's signing will be a win-win.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins will reportedly take his first free agency meeting with the Vikings, and it appears that might be the end of his free agency tour. Since 2015, Cousins ranks third in completion percentage (67), fifth in yards per attempt (7.8), eighth in passing TDs (81) and seventh in Total QBR (62.3), according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Cousins has spent his entire National Football League career so far in Washington, starting all 48 regular season games across the last three seasons and throwing a career total of 99 touchdowns against 55 interceptions.

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.

Third-year player Joshua Garnett missed all of last season with a knee injury and is an uncertain fit in Kyle Shanahan's offense. Later, Ohio State's Billy Price, Georgia's Isaiah Wynn, UTEP's Will Hernandez and Iowa's James Daniels could be options.

Cousins went 26-30-and-1 as Redskins starting QB, including a 24-23-1 record the past three seasons - a stretch during which he started every game.

Washington didn't commit to a long-term contract for Cousins, opting to place the franchise tag on him the past two seasons. But the Redskins missed the playoffs by losing their regular-season finale at home to the New York Giants.

It can be argued that he played that role for Washington since being drafted by the Redskins in 2012.

There likely were two selling points brought up by Spielman when he presented his plan to Zygi Wilf and Vikings ownership after the season-ending loss to the Eagles in the NFC championship game.

Case Keenum is expected to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency officially opens Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET.

Kirk Cousins' first free agent visit will be with the Vikings. Luckily for him, he walks into a similar situation in Minnesota, with one of the NFL's top receiving duos - Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. The backfield also could become one of the league's best behind the return of Dalvin Cook, who is recovering from a torn ACL, and Latavius Murray.

"I haven't had the chance to pick where I'm going to play since 2007 when I chose to go to Michigan State, so I'm looking forward to that opportunity", Cousins said in Minnesota the week of the Super Bowl during an appearance on SiriusXM satellite radio.

The New England Patriots are still the 2019 Super Bowl favorites after coming up short against Philadelphia last month.
