  • Kirk Cousins who won't be returning

Reported to be the target of numerous quarterback-needy teams, Cousins has shown his worth over the past three seasons as the starter for the Washington Redskins.

While Keenum to Denver has a sexy sound to it, it doesn't seem like the Broncos want Keenum back in the AFC. Going 5-8 as a starter while putting up a career-high 2,926 yards and 18 interceptions captained NY to a 5-8 record as a starter, a surprising mark for a team expected to compete with the winless Cleveland Browns for the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are also expected to sign elsewhere. The deal is being called a "landmark contract" that will make Cousins the highest paid quarterback in the National Football League with an average annual salary of $28 million. The fact that is a slightly shorter-term deal also means that his contract is unlikely to hamstring the Vikings in the way that others have, most notably the Joe Flacco-Ravens deal.

There are other free-agent quarterback options. After struggling for the Rams, Keenum thrived last season for the Vikings.

Then, yesterday, as pointed out locally by 104.3 The Fan's Zak Bye, Cousin penned a goodbye blog to Washington fans that tagged the Jets and the Vikings, but not the Broncos.

Not only did Cousins sign with the right team, he will instantly be the shot caller for a super bowl contender.

In Minnesota, Cousins will be replacing Keenum, who helped guide the team to a 13-3 record and a trip to the NFC Championship last season. The Jets, meanwhile, offer a clean slate, cap space, and potentially $60 million in the first year. Cousins could command a deal in the neighborhood of $90 million over three years.

Jimmy Graham expected to sign with Saints or Packers?
According to Spotrac , the release clears $10.2 million in cap space for the Packers, which will certainly help in signing Graham. The soon to be 33-year-old Nelson had a down year in Green Bay last year, hauling in 53 passes for 482 yards and six touchdowns.

The next season he threw for a career-best 4,917 yards with 25 touchdowns against 12 interceptions for a 97.2 rating.

There is no shortage of tough decisions for Maccagnan, but that is what he was hired to do, so the next few days will easily make or break his tenure as GM.

WELCOME TO MINNESOTA: Vikings Pro Bowl cornerback welcomed Cousins to Minnesota with a tweet, but made sure to let him know it will still be "Rhodes Closed" in practice. "Cousins, Vikings have mutual interest".

It appears the Saints, and Tom Condon, the agent for Drew Brees, have had trouble agreeing on Brees' value to the Saints. Even if they get Cousins, a veteran backup is needed. It's not just the quarterback position we have to get better at.

But none of the last 12, first-round quarterbacks of the previous five drafts reached the playoffs in year one.
