Cousins is Signing with the Vikings

Cousins is Signing with the Vikings”

The Vikings are banking on this being his last trip, too.

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. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have formed a risky young duo of wide receivers, combining for 2,125 yards during the regular season. They are pushing for a Super Bowl right now. "I think it's a pretty short checklist".

Cousins, who hits free agency after playing on the franchise tag the last two seasons in Washington, has passed for more than 4,000 yards each of the past three seasons. However, Cousins still had a pretty good season with 27 touchdown passes and 13 interceptions.

According to the Broncos, when free agency opens Wednesday afternoon the Broncos and Keenum are expected to have a short-term deal.

That would leave the Vikings, Cardinals and Jets vying to land ex-Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is expected to sign a record-breaking contract this week.

With Drew Brees, Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum and Sam Bradford effectively off the market, the Jets are prepared to roll the dice on former Vikings signal-caller Teddy Bridgewater.

But Cousins had an uncomfortable relationship with the Redskins, ever since he made his National Football League debut for them as a fourth round draft pick in 2012.

Bridgewater suffered a serious knee injury in training camp before the 2016 season. The Vikings have otherwise been finding stopgap solutions since moving on from 2011 first-round draft pick Christian Ponder.

Bradford is also a free agent.

The deal can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

Success! An email has been sent with a link to confirm list signup. Cousins' deal set a new benchmark for players. Kubiak has since taken on a role in the Broncos' front office this offseason. This figure and the term of the contract - unlike with Cousins - should not preclude the Broncos from drafting a quarterback fifth overall if they choose to go in that direction.

According to CBS Sports analyst Bryant McFadden on Twitter, Bridgewater is finalizing a deal that will make him a member of the New York Jets.
