#97 Where will Kirk Cousins end up? NFL Free Agency Special 2018 and Insider Buzz with Erick Trickel
5 days ago
In a so-called “NFL offseason” that has had more drama than any other, the intensity is only about to get crazier within the next 72 hours. On Monday at noon ET, the NFL free agency frenzy essentially begins as teams can start to negotiate with representatives of free agents. And from then until the 2018 League Year officially begins at 4 PM ET on Wednesday, expect many deals to be struck along with many unexpected twists and turns. And to give us all a preview of what to expect and anticipate these next few days is NFL insider extraordinaire Erick Trickel. Erick covers the NFL, the NFL Draft and the Denver Broncos for MileHighHuddle.com. Not only is he one of THE most wired-in people to the inner NFL world that I know, he is also an amazing friend and mentor.
Let’s start with what makes this year’s free agency period so unique and that is the amount of serviceable QB’s hitting the market. As you tweeted out last night, it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the crown jewel of this free agency class Kirk Cousins is headed to the Vikings. From November until the Combine, many (including you) were very confident he would wind up with the Broncos. To your knowledge, what made Cousins change his mind?
What do you anticipate the final numbers on Cousins’ contract with Minnesota looking like…and will they have enough wiggle room to keep most of their upcoming young core (Barr, Diggs, Hunter, Kendricks, Waynes)?
With Cousins about to be donning purple, this likely means Case Keenum, the man who helped the Vikings get to the NFC Championship game last season will be headed to the Broncos. Many were expecting him to get a deal bigger than the one Brock Osweiler got from the Texans in 2016, but you remain adamant that this is not the case. Does it look like the Broncos will have a potential out of this probable deal after the 2018 season?
At this time, what are the most likely landing spots for the other top free agent quarterbacks?
What has made this NFL “offseason” so much fun is all the trades that have already gone down. Since the week of the Super Bowl, 11 trades have been struck, including four within a 24-hour period this weekend by the Cleveland Browns alone. Plus, the wheeling and dealing could get even more intense over these next few days. Which players do you see getting shipped either before or on Wednesday?
