Vikings told Teddy Bridgewater their intentions with Kirk Cousins

While the football world waits for Kirk Cousins to decide his future, the free-agent quarterback is filming it.

On Monday, the NFL Network reported that at least two teams are prepared to offer Cousins a three-year, fully guaranteed contract and one other team is willing to come close to a fully guaranteed deal.

Cousins, who has played two seasons for the Redskins on a franchise tag, topped the 4,000-yard mark for the third straight year in 2017. However, this is not what makes the Vikings one of the highest contenders in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes.

But Cousins' situation differs from most because quarterbacks in their prime rarely hit the market.

The Michigan State grad was left to dive into the free agent waters, and he probably won't need to swim for long: The ESPN pundit class has linked him to nine teams. Which team will Cousins choose?

There is no way I would be where I am today without the leadership of the Redskins organization ... Currently, the Vikings front office has said their primary target is landing Kirk Cousins out of Washington, and would have Teddy Bridgewater as their second option.

He said he'd be forever grateful to former coach Mike Shanahan for drafting him, three rounds after they selected quarterback Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick.

This time, he has the opportunity to earn life-changing money few journeymen ever see. "Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything".

The Cardinals now have about $20m in cap space, which is significantly less than the Broncos, Vikings (around $48m) and the Jets (around $92m).

In Minnesota, Keenum excelled at sliding in a muddy pocket to make plays and give himself throwing lanes.

Recently, Gregg Rosenthal and Chris Wesseling from put together a list of their top 101 free agents around the league and Case Keenum was listed as the eighth best player available heading into the 2018 NFL season.

The 26-year-old Johnson tweeted the following to Cousins on Friday: "c'mon ... stop messing with every1 & tell them you're coming to the desert".
