Case Keenum heading to Denver

Case Keenum heading to Denver

The quarterback reports started with the Denver Broncos attracting Case Keenum for a two-year, $36 million contract. With this deal, which ESPN's Adam Schefter says is fully guaranteed, Cousins will make out with almost $128 million in five years.

Keenum went 11-3 with 3,547 yards passing, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions and threw that last-second heave to Stephon Diggs to stun the New Orleans Saints 29-24 in the playoffs. He also sneakily adds something as a runner, with 13 rushing scores over those three seasons. Fully-guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

While technically eligible to be part of the free-agent quarterback class, Drew Brees was never thought to be leaving New Orleans, where he's been a 10-time Pro Bowler and is closing in on the National Football League record for career passing yards.

Cousins initially tagged the Vikings and the Jets at the bottom of the letter, but swiftly removed any reference to his suitors.

It turns out this was the best decision the Redskins could do for the 29-year-old player, who now has two teams offering him not just a guaranteed three-year deal but also an amount that is very hard to resist.

But with the Vikings in desperation mode now that they're only a quarterback away from being a legitimate Super Bowl contender, there's simply no way to justify a similar deal that could have Cousins potentially gone after three years. But they could begin negotiating with the players' agents at noon Monday, and Tuesday brought a continuous string of reports on personnel moves that will happen when the league's 2018 business year starts on Wednesday.

And so it makes sense for Minnesota to splurge on Cousins. They are also expected to use the sixth pick in the draft on a quarterback, giving them multiple options beyond the upcoming season.

The Keenum move has Kubiak's fingerprints all over it. Kubiak signed Keenum as an undrafted free agent in 2012 in Houston and believed in him enough to send him out on the field very quickly. No team could offer a better one than the Vikings. He led the league by completing 71.6-percent of his passes.

The Vikings saw their championship odds go from 16-1 to 12-1 Tuesday afternoon. When the offseason rolled around, Cousins was tagged again - and this time, it was Cousins who had reservations. They have a solid running game, some good young receivers and a dominating defense. "It was just a matter of what was the most fair deal for me and for the team to put us in the best position to succeed in the near future". It is unsure yet which other team Cousins will meet with, but those reported to be lobbying hard for him are the Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, and Denver Broncos. Wide receiver Allen Robinson will reportedly sign a three-year, $42 million deal with the Chicago Bears.
