Broncos going after former UH quarterback Case Keenum

Adam Caplan said as much over the weekend on Sirius Radio, while NFL Network's Ian Rapoport described the Vikings as still being in the drivers' seat for Cousins. Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are also expected to sign elsewhere.

On Tuesday morning it was reported the Minnesota Vikings intend to make quarterback Kirk Cousins a very wealthy man. Owning a 9-15 career record as a starter, Keenum posted a 12-4 mark last season, counting the postseason.

Those are the kind of numbers the Broncos will want for $18 million a year, not the 62 completion percentage and 1.7 TD-to-INT ratio that Keenum has averaged per season since entering the league.

The 30-year-old started 14 regular-season games and both postseason contests last season while leading the Minnesota Vikings to within one win of the Super Bowl.

The deal can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. They will have a top-notch defense once again this season, while their offense will make a big leap forward if Cousins is indeed signed. He was placed under a franchise tag the last two years.

Along the way, they will encounter other superheroes like Superman , Wonder Woman ( Halsey ) and Green Lantern ( Lil Yachty ). DC's live-action movies have succumbed to doom and gloom lately, but Teen Titans Go to the Movies might reverse all that.

Another added, "Now Zayn and Gigi broke up?" "The reality is that they've grown apart, having been together for a long time". He continued: "I'm grateful to all our fans for respecting this hard decision and our privacy at this time".

Bradford enjoyed his best pro season in 2016, throwing for 3,877 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions for the Vikings before he made only two appearances past year due to a knee injury. Cousins has never won a playoff game in his career, though he's been as consistent as nearly anyone in the last three seasons.

Cousins had been connected to several teams in the weeks before free agency, including the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals. Sources told ESPN that he plans to sign the pact on Thursday.

Along with Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater is also a free agent after spending eight weeks as the Vikings' No. 2 quarterback.

But if you're a fantasy football owner who thinks this potential pairing of Cousins and the Vikings will vault him from solid QB to elite, step back for a sec.

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.
