Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins said he probably will not work out with the receivers before training camp because they will have plenty of time to build chemistry during camp.
Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator John DeFilippo may be able to get more production out of quarterback Kirk Cousins in the red zone in 2018. DeFilippo was responsible for much of Philadelphia's red-zone schemes last season, and they led the league in red-zone efficiency. The Vikings will likely run the ball much more in the red zone, but the presence of tight end Kyle Rudolph will surely help Cousins be more efficient in the red zone than he was in Washington last year. Cousins will be a solid QB1 for fantasy owners.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Updating an earlier report, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is likely to sign with the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources.
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.
Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will visit the Minnesota Vikings first, according to a source.
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.
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.
Free-agent QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) remains a free-agent option for the Arizona Cardinals.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
