Expected finalists for Kirk Cousins: Broncos, Cardinals, Jets and Vikings

ESPN


The final four teams expected to be vying for free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins are the Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Saturday.

Those teams privately are planning how to pursue Cousins, how to structure a contract for him and how to land him, league sources told Schefter. Most of those teams are thinking short-term deals, potentially three years, with a very high guarantee in the contract.

Cousins is flexible on how the money will be paid out because he has made so much the past two seasons playing under the franchise tag for the Washington Redskins.

it is 1/3 now:

Cousins update:

Kirk Cousins would likely insist that he has not made any decisions about his future with free agency still days away, but Las Vegas believes the star quarterback already knows where he will be playing in 2018.

As Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News noted on Friday, Las Vegas ó more specifically Bovada.lv ó considers the Minnesota Vikings to be the overwhelming favorite to sign Cousins. The Vikings have 1/3 odds to land Cousins, while the Denver Broncos have the second highest chance at 10/3. Thatís a very significant gap.

The New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals, the other two teams that have been mentioned as potential Cousins suitors, are third and fourth at 5/1 and 15/1, respectively.

At this point, Cousinsí decision could come down to whether he wants more money or a better shot at winning. While all of the aforementioned teams would be willing to make him one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL, there have been reports that the Jets are willing to make whatever financial commitment they have to make. The Vikings, however, went to the NFC Championship Game last season and may have the best defense in the NFL. They also have two rising star wide receivers in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs and a playmaking running back in Dalvin Cook.

Given some of the rumblings we have heard, itís not surprising that Minnesota is considered the favorite. But if NFL free agency has taught us anything, itís that things can change quickly and often.

Told you that you should have bet the farm at 3/1

You could have been a rich man. I would have banged it for a couple bills but my books didn't offer it.

It's a lock. Vegas changed the odds because they heard something we have not.

Former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed $84 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The landmark deal will make Cousins the highest-paid quarterback in the league.

Kirk Cousins will never live up to the amount of money that the Vikings gave him. I never really understood the hype around him in the first place. He is a good, not great player that was treated like a hall of famer this off season.
