Report: At least two teams willing to offer Cousins fully guaranteed deal

  Report: At least two teams willing to offer Cousins fully guaranteed deal Kirk Cousins could very well become the highest paid player in NFL history when he signs with a new team in the coming days, and there’s a chance he could achieve that by demanding a fully guaranteed contract. There has been some talk that Cousins may want to sign only a three-year deal with all of the money being guaranteed. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that at least two teams — and possibly three — are willing to give him a contract like that. As the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes heats up, sources say at least 2 teams are prepared to offer the free agent QB a 3-year, fully guaranteed contract if that’s what it takes. At least one other team will do a similar deal nearly fully guaranteed. Would make him the highest paid QB. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 12, 2018 By signing a deal like that, Cousins would have more control over his future. Jimmy Garoppolo recently signed a five-year, $137.5 million extension with the 49ers, and Matthew Stafford got a five-year, $135 million contract from the Detroit Lions last offseason. Both players will earn about $87 million over the first three years of their respective deals, so Cousins is likely aiming for a three-year contract in the $90 million range. Cousins is trying to balance winning with being paid top dollar, so the three-year, fully guaranteed contract would make the most sense for a team like the Jets.

Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos when free agency opens Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Keenum, who turned 30 in February, is coming off the finest season of his career. He went 11-3 for the Vikings, setting career highs in completion percentage (67.6 percent), yards (3,547), touchdowns (22), and quarterback rating (98.3).

Minnesota finished the season an impressive 13-3, eventually losing the NFC Championship Game to the Philadelphia Eagles. That loss came after a wild divisional-round win over the New Orleans Saints, in which Keenum threw for over 300 yards and the game-winning touchdown.

Denver, meanwhile, has found its quarterback. It considered Kirk Cousins and discussed Teddy Bridgewater, but Keenum's the man, Schefter adds.

There's no word on Keenum's contract details as of late Monday night, but he's in for a big raise on the $2 million the Vikings paid him in 2017.
