Case Keenum: Broncos signing former Vikings quarterback

Vikings closing in on signing Cousins to three-year deal

The Denver Broncos are hoping to repeat the success they had with Peyton Manning in pursuing another free agent fix at quarterback.

Plenty of teams are looking to upgrade under center this offseason, and the Broncos are reportedly the first team to nab one through free agency.

The only other quarterback now signed by the Vikings is former undrafted free agent Kyle Sloter. However, NFL Media reported Tuesday that Brees will get a two-year, $50 million deal to return to New Orleans.

While Kirk Cousins' agent said, "No final decisions have been made", the Vikings had on the table a three-year, $84 million contract that was fully guaranteed, would make him the highest-paid quarterback in the National Football League and seemed too lucrative to turn down.

Thomas, 30, was the 22nd selected player in the 2010 NFL Draft by way of these very same Broncos.

Keenum, a backup when last season began, guided Minnesota to the NFC North title and then into the conference championship game. But the Jets also were reported to have a deal with Teddy Bridgewater ready for Wednesday.

With a sparkling new stadium, stacked roster and head coaching stability, the Vikings jumped to the head of the line of potential suitors for Cousins. He took over after Sam Bradford suffered a knee injury in the opener and started all but one game the rest of the season.

The Denver Broncos have their quarterback, and it isn't Kirk Cousins.

McCarron will become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday after spending the past four seasons behind Andy Dalton with the Cincinnati Bengals.
