Here's where we stand with the Vikings, Kirk Cousins and other QB options

Breakout Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum could be a Denver Bronco.

Unlike other major sports leagues like the MLB, NHL and National Basketball Association, fully guaranteed contracts are a rarity in the NFL.

Terms of the deal have not been revealed, but the New York Jets may be one of the most interesting and unusual fits for Bridgewater considering the weather and supporting cast the team has to offer. That shatters the average annual value of $28 million the Vikings are offering.

The Vikings are coming off an NFC Championship Game appearance with perennial backup Case Keenum as its starting quarterback after injuries sidelined Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.

Washington will not face the Vikings during the 2018 regular season. Cousins earned 4093 passing yards, throwing for 27 touchdowns while also throwing 13 interceptions.

That led to yet another franchise tag, as Cousins told the Redskins he wasn't ready to commit long term and wanted to gauge the direction of the franchise.

Siemian, Lynch and Chad Kelly, a seventh-rounder past year who sat out his rookie season with injuries, remain on the roster. But if it eventually happens, the day Cousins signed with the Vikings could be remembered as the moment that changed it all.

In his three years as a full-time starter, Cousins is third in the National Football League in completion percentage and sixth in passer rating, with those numbers comparing to Aaron Rodgers.

According to the Broncos, Keenum had the best season of his career in 2017 where he completed 67.6 percent of his passes, threw 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns.

NFL Media reported Monday that the Vikings put in a call to Drew Brees' agent Monday to express interest in future hall of fame quarterback.

Cousins will visit with the Vikings first, according to NFL Network, meaning it's possible the 29-year-old quarterback could join Minnesota without hearing the Jets' full pitch.

Siemian again handily beat out Lynch last summer, but the Broncos would cycle through their trio of homegrown QBs during a 5-11 season that almost cost rookie head coach Vance Joseph his job.
