Looks like Case Keenum to the Broncos. Vikings looking at Brees and Cousins.

Keenum Link
The Broncos have agreed to sign Case Keenum, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Exact of the pact are not yet known, though Mike Klis of 9NEWS (on Twitter) hears that it’s expected to be a two-year deal for at least $36MM.

Why are Vikings looking for another QB? Don’t they have like 5 starters already on the roster?

ESPN's saying that the Vikings are going to sign Kirk Cousins.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22746875/minnesota-vikings-likely-sign-former-washington-redskins-qb-kirk-cousins

Moves the market along for a possible Nick Foles trade to a team that lost out in the race to sign Cousins.

Oh - Eagles restructure Lane Johnson's contract, frees up $7M, and they are about to sign another DT in Haloti Ngata as they will not resign Beau Allen. Also, Trey Burton will be going to the Bears - good stop for him, with Nagy as the coach there now.

ESPN is saying Cousins is getting a 3 year, fully guaranteed, $84M contract with the Vikes. Yikes, that's serious money.

He's replacing Beau Allen as defensive line depth for a line that's chock full of depth. Just having a pulse would be enough for that role.

Right. Beau Allen never struck me as a first ballot HOFer.

Heard they offered Jordy near the minimum to stay.

aaronrodgers12Hard to find the right words today to express what 87 means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a packer quite like him. From living in GB full time, his incredible contributions to the city, state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business. There will never be another quite like white lightning. #leader #brother #friend #baller #loyal #champion #legacy #intact #stillcanplayball #backshoulder #1stSBTD

Interesting connection here - Ngata was the one who killed RGIII's running ability (clean open field hit nailing RGIII on the knee in mid-air), opening the door to Cousins and his extended run of perfectly competent play, which brings him to $84M with the Vikes...

Mike Zimmer's Latest Comment Reveals Sam Bradford is an Elite Moron

But today, Bradford may have just cost himself millions in his upcoming free agency. The man is playing himself and putting his own career in actual jeopardy. Per Zimmer:

Asked Zimmer about the level concern medically with Sam Bradford. He referred to Bradford’s knee as degenerative but also said Bradford was skiing last week. Getting through a full season is the unknown.

Yup, either Foles goes to the Bills in a trade or he's likely the opening night starter for the Eagles in early September when they host either the Falcons or Vikings in the first game of the year. Of course, maybe some team has a Teddy Bridgewater moment again when their starter goes down in the preseason and they need to scramble to fill a starting spot and Foles is back in play.

Eagles also resign Nigel Bradham so Howie continues his magic of making cap room appear out of nowhere to keep quality players.
