Source says QB Kirk Cousins deal to join the Vikings is 'done'

15 March 2018

Reports say the Minnesota Vikings will sign free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to a three-year deal for $86 million...

Over the last three seasons, Cousins, 29, has statistically been one of the most prolific passers in the NFL. I get the Vikings move because they think they are close, but is Cousins $12 million a year better than Case Keenum? They spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the agreement has not been announced.

Will the Vikings win the Super Bowl with Cousins? "Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything". The Saints were seconds away from reaching the NFC championship game last season before a late touchdown from the Vikings ended their hopes. He'll cash in with the Broncos.

He is 23-50 as a starter over his career, with 17,168 passing yards, 97 touchdown passes and 78 interceptions.

The White House is also calling for an audit and review of the Federal Bureau of Investigation tip line. Such information could prevent someone from purchasing a gun if discovered during a background check.

Even after signing Case Keenum, the Denver Broncos may still select a quarterback in the 2018 National Football League draft. They last made the Super Bowl in 1977 and have never won a Super Bowl title.

That included the marquee players on the free-agent list - the quarterbacks.

The Jets elected to bring back Josh McCown after losing out in its bid for Cousins and reportedly now are trying to sign Teddy Bridgewater, another former Viking who is a free agent. Most importantly, the entirety of Cousins' $84 million deal is guaranteed, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The New York Jets also have been in the mix for Cousins, who has passed for 4,000 or more yards each season since becoming Washington's starter in 2015.

More than 3,000 additional USA forces have also arrived in Afghanistan to boost the training and advising of local troops. Afghan security forces have been stretched thin as fighting escalated after winter ended, the report said.

-Super Bowl champion Philadelphia lost two tight ends, cutting veteran Brent Celek, then saw Trey Burton agree to a four-year, $32 million contract with Chicago.

Cousins' decision to visit and likely sign with Minnesota was the third significant move in the NFL's quarterback market this offseason.

-Kansas City will add wide receiver Sammy Watkins and middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens, filling two glaring needs.

Cardinals: Sam Bradford has agreed to terms with Arizona, according to ESPN, on a one-year deal worth up to $20 million, including $15 million guaranteed. The Chiefs have needed to pair a playmaking wideout with Tyreek Hill. Bridgewater's devastating knee injury right before the 2016 season wrecked his quest to become the long-term leader of the offense and face of the franchise. San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo recently signed a five-year, $137.5 million deal for an average of $27.5 million. Now, if this offense adds Jimmy Graham, they could be even more risky than they were last season. The NFC North has Aaron Rodgers, who is so good he rides across the galaxy on a surfboard; Matt Stafford, who is good enough; and Mitchell Trubisky, who showed tremendous potential last season as a rookie.
