For now, it remains unclear where Cousins will end up, but perhaps his blog post has given the National Football League world a hint at the favorites.
Denver can't miss out on both.
What is it they say? "I have a bunch of different offense, I also have good defense, you know?"
The Saints do have $36 million dollars in cap space but that pales in comparison to what the Vikings are working with, and if New Orleans fails to get a deal with Brees complete by Monday he should be the Vikings FIRST call, not their second.
Why does every decent quarterback who either approaches free agency or hits the open market automatically have to make more than the last guy who signed did? Although the Browns just acquired Tyrod Taylor from the Bills, they could still use another quarterback to take over the reigns. He was once a first-round pick for the Vikings and led Minnesota to the playoffs. I'd still be sad to see Case Keenum and/or Teddy Bridgewater leave for opportunities elsewhere, though.
At the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is where talk of Cousins to the Vikings really began to heat up. It might even be the best option for the long-term good of the franchise. Cousins didn't seem to want to negotiate with Washington, so they replaced him with Alex Smith. Cousins started a handful of games from 2012-2014 as the backup to Griffin before taking over permanently in 2015. The following year, Cousins reached the Pro Bowl after finishing with 4,917 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Cousins is coming off three-straight seasons of throwing for over 4,000 yards.
Assuming Cousins, who turns 30 on August 19, signs with the Vikings and starts in Week 1 of the regular season, he would be the Vikings' sixth different opening day starter in seven years at quarterback.
But as one source familiar with the situation texted 9News on Sunday: "Misinformation is worse than no information".
While signing a veteran quarterback to act as a stopgap for a rookie makes sense in theory, it creates plenty of problems as well, with the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans prime examples from this past year. Bradford has been on injured reserve three times in the previous five seasons because of left knee issues.
Arizona is just one game under.500 over the last two years without a reliable starting quarterback.
