  • Report: Jets worried Kirk Cousins likely headed to Vikings

But according to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the feeling within the Jets is that one team has the upper hand over all the rest in terms of landing the much-coveted quarterback: the Vikings. But Cousins could also see a windfall of up to $150 million over five years with $95 million in guarantees.

Here's a quick breakdown of where each of the four rumored teams stands in terms of 2018 cap space (per Spotrac), quarterbacks now under contract for the 2018 season, and draft positioning. It all starts with free agency, but the 2018 NFL Draft is filled with prospects that can help this team build for the future.

Cousins has been on the record as saying he wants to win.

The Michigan State product is coming off a third straight strong campaign, throwing for 4,093 yards with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions over 16 games.

"There's a lot of situations that work out where your Plan A is never the plan that works out and Plan B or C works out even better", Bowles said. This would mean neither the Browns or Bills will go after Cousins.

Yun's retirement represents another loss of a top-ranking U.S. diplomat on Korean affairs: there remains, over a year on, no U.S. The US insists that the talks must include denuclearization, a precondition that Pyongyang rejects.


The 29-year-old has been one of the NFL's most productive quarterbacks since becoming the Redskins' full-time starter three years ago.

Broncos president of football operations/president John Elway said earlier this week at the NFL scouting combine that the team had the salary-cap flexibility to do any deal and would consider any quarterback on the open market. The Broncos spent a first-round pick on Paxton Lynch just two years ago, but he has not developed in the way Denver hoped.

Anderson last season was solid on a bad Broncos offense carrying the ball 245 times for 1,007 yards and three touchdowns. Smith is a bonafide veteran, the first overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2005 NFL Draft. If Case Keenum can have a career year with those weapons, think of the damage Cousins could do.

Two teams likely to target one of this year's top passing prospects are the Denver Broncos and New York Jets, both of which have top-10 selections with which to take a swing on a new face-of-the-franchise player.
