  • NFL INSIDER: Kirk Cousins Will Reportedly Sign With Vikings For $27M Per Season

The NFL's quarterback market is in need of a major correction when you've got guys like David Carr, Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck and now maybe Kirk Cousins at the top of the pay scale. I'm just ready for him to sign somewhere, anywhere, so we can move past all of the speculation and look toward the Vikings' future. Instead of a long-term deal that would likely be renegotiated after four or five years, the 29-year-old Cousins insisted on a short-term deal so he could potentially cash in for top dollar on his next contract when he's 32.

As the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes heats up, sources say at least 2 teams are prepared to offer the free agent QB a 3-year, fully guaranteed contract if that's what it takes.

That puts the Arizona Cardinals behind the eight-ball in their search for a starting quarterback.

The Vikings have said they are going to offer Cousins a three year, $91 million dollars fully guaranteed deal.

Cousins has been linked to the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings, and both teams were originally tagged at the bottom of the letter along with the Redskins before being removed later.

Bradford, 30, and Bridgewater, 25, were attempting to return from injuries at the tail end of the 2017 season as their Vikings charged into the NFC Championship Game behind starter Case Keenum. Last season, he surpassed the 4,000-yard mark for the third consecutive season, throwing for 4,093 yards with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Bridgewater missed all of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL and dislocating his knee.

He said: "There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?" A clip of Damon explaining diversity to producer Effie Brown on Project Greenlight went viral back in 2015.

Cousins is in line to make history.

The Vikings are banking on this being his last trip, too. "Coach (Jay) Gruden, (team president) Bruce Allen, (owner) Dan Snyder", Cousins wrote.

After more than a year of recovery, Bridgewater took the field only once during the 2017-2018 season in a blowout win against the Cincinnati Bengals. They are pushing for a Super Bowl right now.

In a goodbye letter to Redskins fans that was released on his website Monday afternoon, Cousins tagged the Jets and Vikings.

Keenum, at $16 million average salary per season, would be the 32nd highest paid player in the NFL.

"It just didn't sound to me that Mike was sold on Case, " Theismann said. Rapoport reports the deal is worth $86 million. By the time Brees new contract expires, he could very well be the NFL's all-time leader in yards and touchdowns passing. But for the Broncos to go from worst to near first in a year's time, the percentages are greater if they get either Cousins or Keenum, Keenum or Cousins.
