"Cousins, Vikings have mutual interest".
The estimated price tag for Keenum, per Walters, is $45 million for three years with $20 million guaranteed.
Call me insane, but $91 million for Kirk Cousins just seems ludicrous. "You don't really have, especially quarterbacks, become free like that". Keeping Case Keenum, Teddy Brigewater or could there be another option?
If the Broncos, general manager John Elway and Joseph want to turn it around right now, they have but two choices. Cousins also thanked the organization - coach Jay Gruden, team president Bruce Allen and owner Dan Snyder.
- Kirk Cousins is saying goodbye to Washington as he prepares to say hello to his next National Football League city. Keenum finished the 2017 season with over 3,500 yards, 22 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. Defensive back Tyrann Mathieu already alluded to changes coming when he said Thursday that the team asked him to take a pay cut. After struggling for the Rams, Keenum thrived last season for the Vikings.
Cousins spent the last four seasons with the Washington team, and was the starting qb since the 2015 season.
The Michigan State grad was left to dive into the free agent waters, and he probably won't need to swim for long: The ESPN pundit class has linked him to nine teams.
The consensus among the national media is Cousins will replace Keenum in Minnesota and the Broncos are the favorite to land Keenum. McCown would not be an expensive signing for the Jets, who could look to spend the money elsewhere. The Big Four would have a chance to eventually develop into a franchise-type quarterback but it's hard for any team to reach the playoffs with a rookie quarterback. Mike Jurecki reports the contract details are for five years at $145 million dollars, which averages out to $29 million dollars a season.
