Teddy Bridgewater, New York Jets working on deal

Cousins entered the free agent market this offseason as one of the top quarterbacks available. That's an average of $28 million per year, $500,000 per year more than Jimmy Garoppolo will earn per year. Despite ranking fourth in passing yards, sixth in passer rating, and eighth in touchdown passes during three years as Washington's starter, from 2015 to 2018, he never signed a long term contract with the team. The two have stockpiled picks over the last week, meaning they will try to rise in the draft. With this deal, which ESPN's Adam Schefter says is fully guaranteed, Cousins will make out with almost $128 million in five years. He made the Pro Bowl after 2016, when he threw for 4,917 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. They were able to make it to the NFC Championship Game last season largely thanks to the superb performance of their defense and a career year from Case Keenum. Had he played for the Eagles, he would have worked with quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo; if Cousins gets his deal done with the Vikings, DeFilippo would be his offensive coordinator.

Granted, a combination of Bridgewater and McCown could be a temporary solution for the Jets, who could possibly draft a highly-touted quarterback with the No. 6 pick of this year's draft.

Keenum is set to sign for the Denver Broncos, who were another team to be linked with Cousins, along with the Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets.

Most recently, Bridgewater saw action during garbage time of the Vikings Week 15 game against the Cincinnati Bengals where he attempted two passes, one was incomplete and the other was intercepted.

Head coach Vance Joseph and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said prior to a year ago that they wanted to make running the football a priority, and they did, totaling the eighth-most rushing attempts in all of football.

Watkins started covering the Cowboys in 2006 and after a three-year stint covering the Rockets for ESPN is now back on an National Football League beat covering the Jets. Brock Osweiler, who also started last season, is a free agent, and will not be back. It was clear by season's end in 2017 that both sides wanted to avoid another one-year tag.
