New York Jets finalizing deal with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater

According to multiple reports, Cousins - the former Redskins quarterback, is set to sign a free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

Keenum's ascent in 2017 was remarkable to watch, and hopefully that's the guy the Broncos are getting at a reported $18 million per year average on a new contract. He is set become Denver's new starter at the position when free agency opens Wednesday and the deal becomes official, according to a person familiar with the situation.

You can argue how much of a difference Kirk Cousins makes for the Minnesota Vikings, but the oddsmakers certainly seem to think he'll have a significant impact on his new team.

The 28-year-old is leaving the Washington Redskins after playing for the last two seasons under a franchise tag.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins after the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Washington Redskins. That list is now trimmed down to the Jets, Vikings and Cardinals. Paired with one of the top defenses in the league, Cousins will be expected to take the Vikings deep into the playoffs, despite only leading Washington to the postseason once.

"Will only confirm they'll get the first visit", McCartney told the the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

But Keenum and fellow Vikings quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater are eligible for unrestricted free agency, and the team chose to move on. No matter who the Jets pick, they'll need to cultivate a good young quarterback, something they have failed to do for years.

Cousins has started all 16 games in three straight seasons, with over 4,000 yards through the air and at least 25 passing touchdowns in each campaign.

Case Keenum is moving on to Denver, where he will reportedly sign a 2-year deal worth $36 million, with only the first year guaranteed. Last season, in another tagged season, Cousins got 4,093 yards but threw for 27 TD's. 2016 was arguably his best season, with him throwing for nearly 5,000 yards and getting named to the Pro Bowl. Schefter reports Cousins intends to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed contract with the Vikings on Thursday.
