Cardinals among 4 teams in contention for quarterback Kirk Cousins

  • Kirk Cousins

A source close to the Jets said that Cousins might join the Minnesota Vikings, whom he sees as a team with championship potential. Cousins could be that quarterback.

Per SNY, the Jets are nervous that the best quarterback on the market has already chose to sign with the Vikings.

"Despite their willingness to throw a truckload of money and a heavily front-loaded contract at Cousins in an attempt to lure the free agent franchise quarterback to NY, the Jets are anxious he might already be destined to sign with the Vikings instead". However, they fear that there is little they can do to dissuade Cousins from joining the Minnesota Vikings when the time does come.

Bridgewater threw for 3,231 yards, 13 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his last full season in the National Football League back in 2015. The Redskins used the franchise tag on Cousins twice, giving him $23.94 million for his last season's services.




Jurecki reports that despite some noise regarding finalists for Cousins' list of teams or a favorite, that is not yet the case with free agency set to begin on March 14. Reports (via Brian Costello of the New York Post) in late February suggested that New York would be willing to offer the quarterback a whopping $60 million in the first year of his contract.

Perhaps the Jets are the only leverage he needs with the Vikings, but it would seem like the Broncos would be better leverage given they have a better roster situation. But they are far from the only ones.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, several teams are interested in taking on Teddy Bridgewater as starting quarterback.
