The Cardinals and Broncos are joined by the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings to be reportedly in the mix for Cousins, who has played two seasons for the Washington Redskins on a franchise tag. But for the Broncos to go from worst to near first in a year's time, the percentages are greater if they get either Cousins or Keenum, Keenum or Cousins.
If the Jets miss out on Cousins, McCown or Keenum would give the Jets a solid quarterback for the short-term. That means Wednesday or more likely Thursday for a final decision.
Oddly enough, these performances came when Keenum accepted a role as a backup quarterback behind veteran passer Sam Bradford.
Money isn't the only deciding factor for Cousins when it comes to making his free agency decision, asthe former Washington quarterback has also made it known he prefers to play for a competitor. Goessling noted on Twitter that Cousins (or whomever runs his site) originally tagged "Vikings" and "Jets" in his farewell post. "Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything". With receivers like Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry, and a strong offensive line with a plethora of draft picks, Cleveland could be a smart choice for a landing spot.
Cousins had mentioned in an interview that he would "love it" if the Denver Broncos are interested in him, which they are.
Bridgewater would command far less of a salary than Cousins or Keenum. They were 8-8 last season despite many injuries to key players. The Vikings have yet to decide what tender to place on Easton, whom they want back, and they are not expected to tender Sirles and Sankey, which would make them unrestricted. Perhaps the biggest question is why so many teams seem to be in love with McCarron.
The next season he threw for a career-best 4,917 yards with 25 touchdowns against 12 interceptions for a 97.2 rating.
