Cousins, who is 29, will hit free agency again at age 32.

The two sides discussed parameters of a contract on Monday as 2017 starter Case Keenum fled the Vikings and agreed to a deal with the Denver Broncos. The Vikings are reportedly set to guarantee Cousins $84 million over the next three years. Gang Green is not Bridgewater's only option, Rapoport added, but he is the organization's first choice.

There's simply no telling how Bridgewater's reconstructed knee will react to the speed of National Football League game action going forward. The fact the figures from the contract haven't been leaked yet suggests Keenum won't be making anything close to what Cousins will earn.

Maybe they'll tack on three years and $90 million fully guaranteed to his current deal.

Knee injuries have kept Bridgewater on the sidelines for much of the past two years as he's appeared in just one game since the end of the 2015 season.

Siemian, Lynch and Chad Kelly, a seventh-rounder past year who sat out his rookie season with injuries, remain on the roster. The Vikings, ostensibly, would be signing Cousins - whose career record as a starter with the Redskins is 26-30-1 - because they believe he can take them a step further.

Cousins is coming off a 2017-18 campaign in which he threw for 4,093 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions while completing 64.3 percent of his passing attempts. Is married, went to Michigan State, was drafted by Washington and spent six seasons there.

Siemian again handily beat out Lynch last summer, but the Broncos would cycle through their trio of homegrown QBs during a 5-11 season that almost cost rookie head coach Vance Joseph his job. The Vikings are still sorting out what they want to do with the offensive line, but a source said a top priority is re-signing free-agent guard Joe Berger.
