But they will face stiff competition to land him and Cardinals stars Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson have also publicly lobbied this week for Cousins to come and join them in Arizona.
In his blog post, the quarterback was downright sentimental about the organization that took a chance on him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. Theismann predicts Cousins will end up signing with the Vikings over other top suitors Denver, the New York Jets and Arizona. The Jets are one of the top suitors for Cousins, ready to break the bank for the 29-year-old, but they have competition from the Vikings, Broncos and Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings have a decision to make a quarterback. At the time, many people saw his selection as foolish.
That said, Anderson is expected to draw plenty of interest on the trade market heading into the offseason. "But I'll have to give him the ultimate spiel on why Denver is special to me".
Cousins spent the last four seasons with the Washington team, and was the starting qb since the 2015 season. Is there an under-the-radar position the Vikings need in free agency? No such visit has been scheduled with the Broncos yet, though it's not to say it won't in the coming days.
Oil down 1% on continued concerns over USA output
US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were at US$61.91 a barrel at 0755 GMT, down 13 cents, or 0.2 per cent. In other trading, April gasoline fell 0.5% to $1.894 a gallon, while April heating oil fell 1.2% to $1.865 a gallon.
As Sessler points out, McCarron has some familiarity with Broncos coach Vance Joseph.
It all depends on the Cousins culmination in free agency. The Big Four would have a chance to eventually develop into a franchise-type quarterback but it's hard for any team to reach the playoffs with a rookie quarterback. "Gratitude" and "happy" both make sense but are wholly unnecessary if you're trying to really manage tags efficiently. "Obviously we have to get better there, whoever is going to be the quarterback. But we have to focus not only on that, but also on other parts of the football team".
