Cousins to be highest paid QB

$91 million for Cousins is ludicrous

Bridgewater would command far less of a salary than Cousins or Keenum. The Minnesota Vikings have a number of quarterbacks already on their roster and were even said to be close to signing Kirk Cousins, but it's hard not go after a player as talented as Brees.

The Vikings found success in 2017 with Case Keenum at quarterback but by all indications, they viewed him as a good backup. And they're expected to bring in Rosen, as well as Mayfield, for pre-draft visits at the Broncos' Dove Valley headquarters. I'm not constantly 2-on-1's, I'm not just under-hooks, and also, if you get a 2-on-1 on me to try to slow me down I'll just clear to score or something like that, you know? This signing won't be able to be finalized until the free agency period begins on Wednesday at 4 p.m. EST. The Jets could end up signing him to a whopping contract in the neighborhood of five years, $150 million. Not "worth up to" $84 million, but $84 million fully guaranteed.

There are other free-agent quarterback options. Taylor would have paired up well with Paxton Lynch, the Broncos' first-round pick two years ago. I'd still be sad to see Case Keenum and/or Teddy Bridgewater leave for opportunities elsewhere, though.

The Vikings will likely be top contenders in the NFC North next season with Cousins at quarterback.

Last week, there was growing buzz that the Vikings may be the favorites to land Cousins. Jimmy Garoppolo and Matthew Stafford signed five-year deals with their teams that included nearly the exact same amount of guaranteed money that Cousins is getting, but they won't have the ability to become free agents as soon as all that money is paid out.

The 29-year-old veteran has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons.

Keenum completed more than two-thirds of his passes and finished the season with 3,547 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.

Just in 2017 Cousins went 7-9 as the starter in Washington. But is he the franchise quarterback these teams so desperately need? He has started every game for Washington since 2015 and earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2016. The offense boasts arguably the best wide receiver duo in the National Football League with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, a strong receiving tight end in Kyle Rudolph, and an explosive young running back coming back from injury in Dalvin Cook.

That could change if Cousins is willing to grant the Broncos a face-to-face meeting.

But as one source familiar with the situation texted 9News on Sunday: "Misinformation is worse than no information".

Also, multiple sources told Newsday the Jets have some interest in wide receiver Allen Robinson, who played only one game past year for the Jaguars because of a torn ACL.

They're all first-round worthy, if none approach the can't-miss caliber of an Andrew Luck or Carson Wentz. Taking a guard that high is rarely the intriguing play, but it is a possibility for a franchise that has struggled to protect its quarterbacks over the years and says it will continue to emphasize the run game.

I asked Gold Medalist and Golden Gopher Kelly Pannek of Plymouth if she had ever seen the wicked game-winning move that Jocelyn Lamoureux-Davidson pulled-off in the shootout of the gold medal game against Canada.
