Schefter reports Cousins intends to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed contract with the Vikings on Thursday.

Johnson, 33, is no lock to return after he made $2.35 million last season. The terms of the deal haven't been released, but analysts project Keenum's salary to sit somewhere in the $16-18m per year range.

And make no mistake - if the Broncos sign Keenum to a short-term deal, they would nearly be forced into taking a quarterback with the fifth overall pick.

In addition to the three quarterbacks, Minnesota's unrestricted free agents are running back Jerick McKinnon, guard Joe Berger, cornerbacks Terence Newman, Marcus Sherels and Tramaine Brock, kicker Kai Forbath, defensive tackles Tom Johnson and Shamar Stephen, wide receiver Michael Floyd and linebacker Emmanuel Lamur.

The Kirk Cousins carousel appears to be stopping in Minnesota.

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 at the same time, everyone is becoming overheated about him is something of a distraction because the team has so many needs to fill if it is to become a serious playoff contender.

The Eagles, who signed Bradford to a contract extension after 2015, were reportedly interested in bringing Cousins to Philadelphia if the Redskins had decided not to franchise tag him. Well, according to Kim Jones of NFL Network, New York has interest in two veterans: Case Keenum and Josh McCown. And Cousins was the best player on the market, so he will be a fit for the team.

The popular theory all along is that even if the Vikings get Cousins they'll still only have the 3rd best quarterback in the division, behind Aaron Rogers in Green Bay and Matthew Stafford in Detroit.

As I'm about to make one of the bigger decisions of my life, I'll be saying goodbye to my familiar life as a Redskin.

National Football League free agency opens Wednesday, March 14 at 4 p.m. and one of the most highly sought after players this offseason is a West Michigan native. He will not be last.

The former Pro Bowler will likely face pressure from fellow players to take the guarenteed money on offer, as the move would dramatically alter the future of free agency for elite players and quarterbacks in particular.

At the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine is where talk of Cousins to the Vikings really began to heat up. Kubiak has since taken on a role in the Broncos' front office this offseason.
