National Football League notebook: Brees still a Saint, Keenum to Denver

National Football League notebook: Brees still a Saint, Keenum to Denver

Cousins will meet Wednesday with the Vikings once the new league year begins, his agent Mike McCartney said Tuesday.

NY is expected to sign the former Vikings quarterback to a one-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, via a source informed of the situation.

Brees, 39, wants to finish his career in New Orleans, where he has played since 2006, won a Super Bowl and led one of the most productive offenses in the NFL. But, the team added two solid tackles in Reiff and Remmers and drafted a great center in Elflein a year ago.

Drafted in the fourth round by Washington in 2012, the same year the Redskins took Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick, Cousins has topped 4,000 passing yards in each of the last three seasons. He also sneakily adds something as a runner, with 13 rushing scores over those three seasons.

Tight end Trey Burton, who threw a touchdown pass to quarterback Nick Foles in Philadelphia's victory over New England in the Super Bowl, has agreed to a four-year contract worth $32 million, according to two people familiar with the deal.

Back in the Spring of 2015, Wilson was negotiating a contract extension with the Seahawks which would make him the highest paid player at his position at the time.

Cousins initially tagged the Vikings and the Jets at the bottom of the letter, but swiftly removed any reference to his suitors. But Cousins has three years of quality starting experience to his name, while Keenum has one.

If the Minnesota Vikings sign Kirk Cousins, does this increase their chances of obtaining a Super Bowl Trophy?

And so it makes sense for Minnesota to splurge on Cousins. Keenum's 2017 season would've been one of the very best in Broncos history. The Jets also have the sixth overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, which they could use on another quarterback such as Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, but the team has needs at almost every position.

Bennie Fowler was not tendered and will be an unrestricted free agent Wednesday.

Case Keenum - who quarterbacked the Vikings to an NFC North title in 2017 - is set to sign with the Broncos in free agency. It's time they start fresh at quarterback and bring in a young gunslinger that is ready to start come Week 1. Dalvin Cook, whose rookie year was cut short by a torn ACL, is expected back at full strength for offseason workouts. The New York Jets will reportedly shift their attention to Bridgewater. If he falls flat in Minnesota, he'll further confirm to National Football League owners and GMs that fully guaranteed contracts are a bad idea. Finally, it appears that last season's MVP for the Vikings, QB #Case Keenum, is heading to the Denver Broncos.

If the players can get these deals, good for them.
