Kirk Cousins was easily the biggest fish in the pond when free agency began.

- Kirk Cousins will visit the Minnesota Vikings first in his search for a new team. "That's all we can say". Such a deal is the first of its kind in NFL history and will make Cousins the highest paid quarterback in the league barely over a month after the 49ers gave that distinction to their quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo.

Cousins has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his last three seasons with the Washington Redskins. Rather than placing Cousins on another one-year franchise tag, Washington agreed to a trade at the end of January with Kansas City to bring Alex Smith in has the new quarterback for the Redskins. In 2016, Cousins outperformed his breakout 4,166 yard 2015 season by tossing 4,917 yards and 25 touchdowns. Three years later, he beat Favre and Minnesota in the NFC title game on the way to the Saints' first Super Bowl title. They will pick fifth overall in this year's draft and could go after defensive end Bradley Chubb, running back Saquon Barkley or guard Quenton Nelson.

The quarterback reports started with the Denver Broncos attracting Case Keenum for a two-year, $36 million contract. According to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Cousins has come to terms with the Minnesota Vikings after meeting with the NFC North franchise on Tuesday morning.

The Washington quarterback will sign a three-year, $84 million contract.

Last season, Minnesota crashed out against the eventual Super Bowl champion Eagles in the NFC Championship game, but the addition of Cousins will make the Vikings an even more unsafe team.

As much as I like Case Keenum, and as much as I like the quarterbacks in this year's draft class, I don't really like the idea of one of them sitting on the bench for the Broncos. Instead of a long-term deal that would likely be renegotiated after four or five years, the 29-year-old Cousins insisted on a short-term deal so he could potentially cash in for top dollar on his next contract when he's 32. The Already one of the top defenses in the National Football League, with capable playmakers in wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen and running back Dalvin Cook, adding a top quarterback could put the Vikings over the top.
