Vikings, Jets, Cardinals Competing For Kirk Cousins, Case Keenum Joining Broncos


Quarterback Case Keenum, who guided the Minnesota Vikings to the brink of the Super Bowl last season, is expected to sign with the Broncos when free agency opens Wednesday, according to several reports.

Keenum would have veterans Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders as his targets in Denver after Elway chose not to release either of the expensive wide receivers.

Brees has also played against the Vikings in two of the franchise's most memorable games - the 2009 NFC Championship game, which the Saints won in overtime after a late Brett Favre interception, and, of course, the Minneapolis Miracle.

Minnesota is the current favorite to sign Cousins, per Schefter.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - For the second time in the past seven years, the Denver Broncos have roared into free agency to fix a quarterback problem. That would leave the Vikings, Jets and Cardinals in the running to land Kirk Cousins.

Keenum is also a player the Broncos felt they knew well given the team's senior personnel adviser and former coach Gary Kubiak coached Keenum for two seasons when Kubiak was the Texans' head coach.

The Denver Broncos don't appear to be landing Kirk Cousins after all. It's believed the Broncos didn't like fully guaranteeing the third year, or that they wouldn't have Cousins under their control for more than three years.

The 30-year-old will look to help steer the Broncos to a bounce-back season after they went 5-11 in 2017. There's a good chance the always-aggressive Elway wants to take another swing at the quarterback position in this year's draft.

For Keenum, he will now face a pile of expectations in a quarterback-crazed region that saw its team win a Super Bowl just two seasons ago.

"I still think that we're not too far away", Elway said earlier in the offseason. We didn't play well there past year.

The Broncos, who own the fifth pick in next month's National Football League draft, also considered Cousins following a 5-11 season in which Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all struggled behind a porous offensive line and questionable play-calling before Mike McCoy was replaced by Bill Musgrave as offensive coordinator. That doesn't all go on the players.
