Case Keenum reportedly plans to sign with the Broncos

Case Keenum reportedly plans to sign with the Broncos

A source said Philadelphia free-agent defensive tackle Beau Allen, a Minnetonka, Minn., native, has received interest from Detroit and Tampa Bay but the Vikings did not reach out early in free agency.

ESPN first reported that Keenum would sign with the Broncos.

They were expected to offer Cousins a contract that would guarantee him close to $90 million over the first three years, according the 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's Mike Jurecki, but it appears Cousins might be ready to pull the trigger and join the Vikings.

Cousins entered the free agent market this offseason as one of the top quarterbacks available.

Prior to the injury, Bridgewater had the full support of Minnesota's coaching staff as a popular breakout candidate.




Cousins, who hits free agency after playing on the franchise tag the last two seasons in Washington, has passed for more than 4,000 yards each of the past three seasons.

The pay difference in a fully guaranteed deal is mostly cosmetic at this point, but the shift in freedom near the end of the contract is a win for players moving forward and could affect future negotiations. The Vikings had the money to add Cousins and they did it. The 29-year-old former Washington passer will visit the Vikings first and if things go well, Rapoport noted that he will "likely" sign there. After making $18 million in 2017 and playing in just two games because of knee issues, he actually gets a raise that would bring his career earnings to $134 million for his first nine National Football League seasons. He finished with 4,093 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2017 and he has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdown passes in each of the past three seasons.

There is likely to be plenty of rust in Bridgewater's game should he be given the keys to the Jets offense in 2018, meaning NY could bring back McCown to back him up.

The deal can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. But if it eventually happens, the day Cousins signed with the Vikings could be remembered as the moment that changed it all. Both men will be hoping last season wasn't an anomaly for Keenum.

Though Keenum played well last season -- 22 touchdowns and 98.3 QB rating -- he was either putrid or mediocre in his previous six seasons.
