Quarterback calls: Brees stays with Saints, Keenum to Denver

Quarterback calls: Brees stays with Saints, Keenum to Denver

One game shy of reaching Super Bowl LII two months ago, the Vikings appear to have pulled the ultimate franchise power move, clearing the decks of their quarterbacks by going after and apparently landing the most coveted free agent on the open market.

Cousins is scheduled to arrive in the Twin Cities on Wednesday night, have dinner with Vikings officials, and tour the new Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center in Eagan on Thursday. Quarterback play has been a glaring weakness for Denver since Peyton Manning retired and Keenum will have two of the top wide receivers in the league to throw to in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

The Jets and Cardinals also make sense as fits for the 29-year-old who played consecutive seasons for Washington on franchise tags. He has started 49 consecutive games, including his lone playoff start where he threw for 329 yards, but was sacked six times, in a 35-18 NFC wild-card loss to Green Bay after the 2015 season.

Ghanshyam, 28, a school bus conductor, had lost one of his legs when the bus turned turtle in Lehcura area in Jhansi district. A UP government spokesperson said, "The UP chief minister has announced a financial assistance of Rs 2 lakh to the youth".

It turns out this was the best decision the Redskins could do for the 29-year-old player, who now has two teams offering him not just a guaranteed three-year deal but also an amount that is very hard to resist.

There are many reasons the Minnesota Vikings will be in hot pursuit for his services this offseason. The decision reportedly came down to the Vikings and the Jets, but he chose Minnesota quickly on Tuesday.

Surprisingly, Cousins will sign a deal with Minnesota who went 13-3 in the 2017 season, even making a trip to the NFC title game.

The Aramco stake sale is part of the plan, the proceeds from which are expected to be partially used for the diversification. Saudi Aramco said on Monday it was still reviewing its options for the initial public offering.

While Case Keenum was solid in his one season and Teddy Bridgewater will always have a place in our hearts, this was the right move for the Vikings. The Vikings, ostensibly, would be signing Cousins because they believe he can take them a step further. Former second-round pick Mackensie Alexander played well in limited duty previous year, but lost the job to Newman in camp, which could force the Vikings to hesitate about giving him a full-time role. The first player picked in the 2010 NFL Draft, Bradford's career has been marked by injuries. That puts players at the mercy of teams, critics say, who can release those players in the middle of contracts without having to pay the generally nonguaranteed annual salaries for future seasons. For that, the Saints gave him a deal that was a bargain at $25 million. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have formed a risky young duo of wide receivers, combining for 2,125 yards during the regular season.

Minnesota's Super Bowl window won't last forever.

Kirk Cousins is a hero for all the young players that will follow after him.

It is not certain yet what sort of contract that Keenum, who made $2 million last season, will get. "Now we need more players to bet on themselves until fully guaranteed contracts are the norm and not the exception".
