Cousins joins the Vikings, who posted a 13-3 record in 2017 and reached the NFC championship game before losing to the Philadelphia Eagles.

More than just putting up solid numbers, Keenum was helping elevate the Vikings to victories, including three regular season game-winning drives (tied for second in the NFL) and obviously helping the Vikings avoid a defensive collapse in the divisional round of the playoffs against the Saints with the Minneapolis Miracle play. Free agent Kirk Cousins is planning to sign a three-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. But the move does not strap the Vikings salary cap-wise this year and it had to be made, in line with a short window to win at a high level as the roster is now otherwise constructed.

Denver chose to bypass incumbents Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch and go for Keenum, who can't sign until Wednesday. The Minnesota Vikings needed a quarterback to become a Super Bowl contender. He was placed under a franchise tag the last two years. Dalvin Cook, whose rookie year was cut short by a torn ACL, is expected back at full strength for offseason workouts. But all the popular and well, top free agents are rapidly being locked up in new contracts elsewhere. The wide receiver market has been hot so far in free agency.

The best thing? He's a work in progress who has the potential to be the Vikings' solution at quarterback for a long time. Case Keenum plans to sign with Denver when free agency opens Wednesday, ESPN reported early Tuesday. Now the highest paid player in the National Football League without having one playoff victory under his wing, I have no problems whatsoever with his deal with the Vikings. Surely, that can't be any worse than what the Jets have been doing over the past few years.

Back in the Spring of 2015, Wilson was negotiating a contract extension with the Seahawks which would make him the highest paid player at his position at the time. Only when that money is truly justified on the field does it become worth the risk of the money paid.

The Vikings know it because they realize they're in an arms race.

Callahan, 26, is a restricted free agent who was given a low-level RFA tender, meaning the Vikings wouldn't need to give Chicago any compensation for signing him.

In recent weeks, multiple Broncos and multiple Cardinals players had made it known that they want Kirk Cousins to quarterback their teams.

"I haven't had the chance to pick where I'm going to play since 2007 when I chose to go to Michigan State, so I'm looking forward to that opportunity", Cousins said in Minnesota the week of the Super Bowl during an appearance on SiriusXM satellite radio.
