Case Keenum: We're going to take advantage of free agency

The quarterback who last season led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship game for the first time since 2009 reportedly intends on signing with the Denver Broncos. Sure, the Jets still have a chance (and a ton of money), but as the Washington Post has said, Cousins mantra isn't about making the most money; and after spending the first six seasons of his career with a team in perpetual disarray, it looks like Cousins would rather join a winning team and make $27 million than join another team in disarray and make $30 million.

At the National Football League scouting combine this month, Elway said, "we'll continue to look at all of the options out there when it comes to quarterback".

The Denver Broncos don't appear to be landing Kirk Cousins after all.

The Vikings were also rumored Monday to be gauging Drew Brees' interest in leaving the Saints, although an unconfirmed report Monday said Brees and the Saints had agreed on a two-year, $48 million contract.

With Wilkerson now in the fold, the Packers have a formidable defensive line that also includes Mike Daniels and Kenny Clark . He will also contribute to the pass rush - Wilkerson recorded double-digit sacks in two of his seven seasons with the Jets.

The CDC said it would continue to work with the Atlanta police department to solve the mystery of Cunningham's disappearance. The Cunningham's have helped fund a $15,000 Crime Stoppers reward to help generate solid leads in their son's disappearance.

"I still think we're not too far away". Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg are among the best offensive linemen remaining in free agency and can both play two different positions. We didn't play very well there previous year, and that's not all on the players. This figure and the term of the contract - unlike with Cousins - should not preclude the Broncos from drafting a quarterback fifth overall if they choose to go in that direction.

Since Peyton Manning's retirement in 2016, the Broncos have featured a revolving door of starting quarterbacks acquired via free agency, a trade and the draft, and none of them has excelled. Gang Green hasn't won a Super Bowl in 49 years, and the quarterback would become immortalized if he could bring a championship to the much-maligned franchise.

While this might puzzle some Broncos fans who thought the team was clearing the decks to dabble in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, executive vice president John Elway might have made the smarter play.

To try to right the ship, Elway made it clear last month that he meant to scour the free-agent market to find his guy.
