    Cousins a Vike, just a formality now. Keenum in Denver, best left is Bridgewater, Bradford, McCown and McAaron. Yet the Cards are sniffing the carcass of Glennon...wtf?

    I dont know how much better he will do than what Keenum did last year. Granted Cousins is more talented than Keenum, in my estimation, but Keenum balled out for them.

    Bears signed TE Trey Burton from the Eagles.
    Not sure what that means for Adam Shaheen unless they want to give him time?

    And then the Eagles release Celek? :scratch:

    My FA winners so far:

    killer Bs are at it again, but a different set of Bs this time

    Broncos - well done nabbing Keenum when they assuredly already knew Cousins wasn't in the cards for them, PRIOR to Keenum/Vikes news officially hitting. saw the other teams that would be in the Keenum/Bradford/McCown sweepstakes, and struck first to get the one they wanted. Most importantly, aborted the Lynch and Simian projects, a year too late, but aborted finally nonetheless.

    Bears - not sure what impact the new HC has on any of these decisions, but I liked the bears getting weapons right away for their hopeful franchise QB. ARob walks into a situation where he's the hands down alpha WR, should command more than his fair share of targets next season. A healthy? Meredith would be great in the slot, with thunder/lightening RB combo and possibility of passing out of heavy 2TE sets.......give my Trubs as a dark horse high end QB2, and a great value in 2QB format leagues this year.

    Browns - we've all discussed their trades before the FA window opened, but still want to lump these guys in with the winners right now, just so they can say they're winners. Hate to say it, but this looks like a worst to first in the making, provided they draft Bark at the end of April to go with Landry/Tyrod.

    Kirk Cousins - fully guaranteed contract for a FA QB in the NFL.....wow. Most assuredly pissing off most every other team/GM in the NFL by setting this precedent of full guarantee - I think we could start to see 2 trends emerge here: 1 More QBs willing to go FA after their rookie/bridge deal is up and they performed well
    2 More teams committing and locking in QBs early if they have a good one so they don't get a chance at FA.

    My FA Losers so far:

    Danny Amendola - just saw him walk onto the court at the TXTech/KU basketball game a few weeks ago....he's going to Miami to party, not play football. Goes from catching passing from the G.O.A.T. for first downs and TDs to picking balls up that bounce at his feet 2yds short from Tannehill or <insert some rookie from this year's draft class>. He could fill the Landry void nicely and I could be dead wrong, I just don't see him holding up to that many tackles in a season.

    Cards/Jets - they lost the Cousins raffle this off-season, let the Browns get Tyrod when everyone assumed they'd be using a 1st round pick on QB, I guess Bradford and what I'm assuming is another year of Josh McCown or maybe Bridgewater for NYJ aren't the absolute worst options, but look for both to spend 1st or 2nd round draft capital on a QB. Even still somehow trading for McCarron would be better for both of these teams. Hell, if they were smart AND wanted to get QB from the draft, they'd pull a Washington and draft 2 QBs right away and hope they land at least 1 good one.

    No clue what happens with Jordy but I wish him the best. Would love to have him back. Two years for around 10 million.

    You could be right.
    But didn't the Skins tag Cousins 2 straight years before giving up on him?
    The "tag" should still be in play as a contract ploy but like you said, they may hold out for "fully" guaranteed money.
    Attention Season Ticket Holders: Though we fell short of our goal of not winning a Super Bowl (or even having a winning record), because Kirk Cousins and the Vikings decided to fully guarantee contracts, in order to get the mediocre talent on our team in order to put halfway decent sober professionals (most days) on the field each weekend, we will need to raise ticket prices as well as our concession and parking prices. We understand that you may need to work ungodly overtime, or take out a small loan, or settle for that trade school instead of college for your children, but this is for YOUR team. And though we don't know you personally, or the financial burden that being a fan has on you and your family, we want to thank you for supporting YOUR team through this difficult time (of losing seasons). And please enjoy that $15 12oz. beer.
