Keidel: Kirk Cousins Did Jets A Favor By Going To Vikings

On the other hand, Richard Sherman signed a new deal with San Francisco 49ers for a three-year deal worth $49 million.

Toward the end of his introductory news conference at the Vikings' shiny new headquarters in Eagan, Cousins also said this: "This TCO Performance Center is over the top".

And if Cousins lights it up in his first season with the Vikes, Minnesota might owe some thanks to Brady. Case Keenum threw the touchdown that beat New Orleans in January's divisional playoff but looks set to leave Minnesota for the Denver Broncos when free agency opens up on Wednesday. Wilson eventually signed a four-year, $87.6 million extension but it wasn't fully guaranteed.

Former Spartans and Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has just signed the richest deal in National Football League history at up to $90 million.

The official start to free agency comes on Wednesday, but with all the money being thrown around before it started it's hard to imagine it will be any wilder. At this point, it would seem highly unlikely that Maccagnan would avoid picking a quarterback in the first round, but, then again, the Jets have selected a defensive player in the first round every year since taking quarterback Mark Sanchez in 2009.

The Cardinals, due to their salary-cap limitations, were a long shot to land Cousins - the most high-profile of this year's free agents.

The Vikings on Thursday announced the signing of free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins. And Sam Bradford, the starter in 2016, will sign a contract with Arizona that is worth $20 million for 2018 and has a 2019 option for $20 million.

While in Washington, Cousins posted single-season records for the franchise in passing yards (4,917), completions (406), attempts (606) and matched the team record for 300-yard passing games (seven). Bridgewater, meanwhile, is gradually working his way back from a serious knee injury that cost him most of the past two seasons.

Cousins played 62 games for the Redskins, including 48 consecutive starts dating back to Week 1 of the 2015 season. ESPN reported the deal includes the Broncos sending a late-round 2018 draft pick to Minnesota and getting a 2019 selection from the Vikings.

Vikings fans whining about how their team has forsaken Case Keenum for a more expensive quarterback, stop right now.

"Time to go to work", Thielen tweeted. Keenum's only two playoff games came past year, when the Vikings pulled off what many consider one of the greatest plays in playoff history: the 'Minnesota Miracle'.
