Case Keenum is going to Denver while Drew Brees is staying in New Orleans. That means, of course, that the Minnesota Vikings need a quarterback. But don’t worry, they are closing in on onea��the biggest onea��in Kirk Cousins.
The #Vikings are in the driver’s seat for free agent QB Kirk Cousins. They offered him a 3-year, $28M per year deal. It is not over. But if the visit goes well, he is likely to sign there.

That’s quite a number.
Remember, the Vikings are coming off a lopsided loss to the Eagles in the NFC championship game. But they are also losing all three of their quarterbacks to free agency. And now it’s official, per Adam Schefter.
Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully-guaranteed contract from the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, sources tell ESPN.

So Cousins is the guy. Can the Vikings get back to where they were last season?
