The New York Jets were one of four finalists for Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins and made multiple offers to him. New York Daily News reporter Manesh Mehta said Cousins weighed his decisions heavily and left the Jets on the board until Tuesday, March 13.

Mar 16 5:13pm ET

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins has $6 million in incentives, $2 million per year, tied to his three-year, $84 million deal. Those incentives are triggered by play time, team points scored and Super Bowl wins. To hit the highest level in any year, Cousins has to be Super Bowl MVP.

Mar 15 3:33pm ET

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) officially signed a three-year, $84 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, March 15.

Mar 13 12:20pm ET

Updating a previous report, free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins may have a home, as Adam Schefter of ESPN says that the Vikings are going to sign Cousins on Thursday. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported that the team offered Cousins a three year deal valued at $28M per year and Schefter confirms that the entire deal is guaranteed. While "it is not over" per Rapoport, both Rapoport and Schefter go on to say that if Cousins' visit to Minnesota goes well, he is likely to sign there. The Jets and Cardinals are also interested in Cousins, but it appears that he is set to be the newest Viking

Mar 13 12:03pm ET

Updating earlier reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, March 15, according to sources.

Mar 13 11:43am ET

Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is likely to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.

Mar 13 11:30am ET

Free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins may have a home, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network says that the Vikings are "in the driver's seat" for Cousins. Rapoport reports that the team offered Cousins a three year deal valued at $28M per year. While "it is not over" per Rapoport, he goes on to say that if Cousins' visit to Minnesota goes well, he is likely to sign there. The Jets and Cardinals are also interested in Cousins, but it appears that he is set to be the newest Viking.

Mar 13 11:13am ET

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will visit the Minnesota Vikings first, according to a source.

Mar 13 1:00am ET

Free-agent quarterback Case Keenum could become a candidate for the New York Jets if they lose out on free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins. Re-signing quarterback Josh McCown is another option for Gang Green. Keenum surprised everyone and led the Vikes to the NFC title game in 2017, going 325-for-481 for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions in 15 games. He was helped by Minnesota's solid core of receivers, though, and he remains more of a game manager. Moving to New York would make him far less attractive to fantasy owners.

Mar 12 8:30pm ET

Free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins may still be in play for the Arizona Cardinals, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Cousins' sister lives in the "Phoenix area," which supposedly will be a factor in Cousins' decision. Like the Jets, Vikings or Broncos, the Cardinals will have to pay a pretty penny if they want Cousins to be their quarterback. The Jets may have the most money (about $150 million) to offer Cousins, but it still appears that the Vikings are the best fit for Cousins.

Mar 12 5:33pm ET

Free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) remains a free-agent option for the Arizona Cardinals.

Mar 12 5:20pm ET

Although there were reports that the Arizona Cardinals were prepared to make a pitch to quarterback Kirk Cousins, those reports have been denied. While Cousins would be a very solid option at quarterback for the Cardinals, they are just one of several teams in the race for the signal-caller and their path to securing his signature will be tricky to navigate. Regardless, Cousins should be considered a borderline QB1 wherever he goes and would be a decent boost to the values of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and running back David Johnson.

Mar 12 3:10pm ET

Sources are saying that at least two teams are willing to offer free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins a three-year, fully-guaranteed deal if that's what it takes. At least one other team will do a similar deal that is almost fully guaranteed. Cousins will almost certainly become the highest paid quarterback in the NFL this offseason, with the Vikings, Broncos, Jets and Cardinals his mostly likely suitors. The Vikings appear to be the favorites, and Cousins would be a strong QB1 option if he ends up there.

Mar 12 1:40am ET

The Arizona Cardinals will target free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins and offensive guard Andrew Norwell in free agency. With quarterback Carson Palmer retiring, it's no secret that the Cardinals are looking for a quarterback this year, and offensive line is a another big priority. However, Cousins is expected to land with the Vikings, Broncos or Jets, so Arizona may be forced to settle on a short contract with a veteran signal caller while pairing him with a young QB from the draft. We'll have a better idea of the fantasy value of receiver Larry Fitzgerald after the Cardinals settle on someone under center.

Mar 10 10:33pm ET

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson sent out a tweet Friday, March 9, asking Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins to join him in Arizona.

Mar 8 3:23am ET

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could be on the verge of going to the Minnesota Vikings, as the 'belief' around the league is that it is a 'done deal' between the two sides, according to Tony Pauline of DraftAnalyst.com.

Mar 7 11:40pm ET

The Denver Broncos have had trade conversations concerning cornerback Aqib Talib with the San Francisco 49ers, but it doesn't look like a deal will get done, according to sources. Talib prefers to be released so that he can choose his next team, and the Patriots are his top choice, according to sources. The Broncos are trying to shed some salary cap space in order to make a run at free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, and they'll have to make some sacrifices on both sides of the ball in order to do so. Talib figures to be one of the casualties. The 32-year-old is long in the tooth, but he remains effective and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2017. He played with New England in 2012 and 2013 and would certainly shore up their secondary, which was a liability at times in 2017.

Mar 6 6:43pm ET

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings have a mutual interest in each other, but no offers and no decisions have been made yet and financial details will be a big factor, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Mar 6 4:40pm ET

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is officially a free agent, as the Washington Post reports that the team did not offer a franchise tag for their quarterback. This is the worst kept secret in football, as the team traded for Alex Smith and Cousins was not going to accept the franchise tag either way. The Jets and Broncos (among teams) have shown interest in Cousins, but it looks like he is going to the Vikings. At 29 and coming off of a season where he had just under 4100 yards and completed 64.3% of passes in Washington, he will get a huge payday wherever he goes.

Mar 6 3:43pm ET

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins has reportedly been offered a three-year, $91 million fully guaranteed deal from the Minnesota Vikings.
