New York Jets working on a deal with Teddy Bridgewater

Most recently, Bridgewater saw action during garbage time of the Vikings Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals where he attempted two passes, one was incomplete and the other was intercepted.

As to the possibility that Cousins won't be attractive in three years based on his performance over the next three, a couple of non-guaranteed years wouldn't have mattered, because the Vikings would have cut him. Gang Green is not Bridgewater's only option, Rapoport added, but he is the organization's first choice.

The mass exodus by the three quarterbacks is logical considering the Vikings are on the verge of signing Kirk Cousins to a three-year, $84 million contract. But the opportunity to sign Cousins is a rare one that could not be passed up. He may not be talked about a lot as a top corner in free agency, but whoever signs him will be getting a major steal.

Terms of the contract are unknown, but several projections figure to land him in excess of Blake Bortles' three-year, $54-million extension. He took over after Sam Bradford suffered a knee injury in the opener and started all but one game the rest of the season.

With the Vikings on the verge of signing Cousins to a huge deal, a source said they might look to trim salary with some players on their roster.

The Broncos were reportedly considering fellow quarterback Kirk Cousins before settling on Keenum, who posted career highs in completions (325), attempts (481), completion percentage (67.6), passing yards (3,547) and touchdowns (22) in 2017.

Watkins started covering the Cowboys in 2006 and after a three-year stint covering the Rockets for ESPN is now back on an National Football League beat covering the Jets.

The free agent quarterback is on the verge of a big payday at age 29, his first time on the open market. The Vikings had the money to add Cousins and they did it. If New York misses on Cousins, it will have to turn its attention to the draft while also considering the addition of a veteran quarterback like Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater.

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.
