New York Jets working on a deal with Teddy Bridgewater

The only other quarterback now signed by the Vikings is former undrafted free agent Kyle Sloter. Cousins could command a deal in the neighborhood of $90 million over three years.

Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a contract with the Minnesota Vikings when free agency officially begins on Wednesday, and the structure of the deal should excite his fellow players.

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

At least two teams are prepared to offer the quarterback a three-year, fully guaranteed contract. The 30-year-old quarterback started 14 games and set career marks in 2017 after playing sparingly for the Texans and Rams during his five prior National Football League seasons.

Bradford enjoyed his best pro season in 2016, throwing for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions for the Vikings before he made only two appearances a year ago due to a knee injury. Keenum is expected to sign a deal with the Denver Broncos while Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater, the backup to Keenum most of 2017, both become free agents. They can finish second in their attempt to nab Minnesota quarterback Case Keenum.

Minnesota has a sparkling stadium, the site of Super Bowl 52, and the organization just moved into new state-of-the-art suburban headquarters with top-of-the-line practice fields and training facilities just last week.

Business Insider.com says the New York Jets' offer to the free agent quarterback included earning $60 million guaranteed in the very first year of the contract. If he is willing to take a one-year "prove it" deal, the Jets should try to bring him in to give them a No. 1 WR threat. "If you are (NFC) offensive player of the month (for November) and your head coach doesn't make some kind of commitment to you, maybe I'm reading between the lines a little bit, but those are pretty big lines to read between".

"It just didn't sound to me that Mike was sold on Case, " Theismann said. Last season, he led the Saints to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs and did it with a stronger defense as well as a pair of incredibly talented running backs. But did Cousins accidentally let everyone know that it's really a two-team race between the Jets and the Vikings?

On Monday, Cousins wrote a goodbye post on his website and included the category tags "Jets" and "Vikings", fueling rumors about his ultimate destination. 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.
