The biggest loser and winners this year — National Football League free agency

Now it's up to Cousins to deliver after securing a three-year, fully guaranteed deal worth $84 million. He visited the team's new practice facilities in Eagan on Thursday morning before inking the deal.

The Broncos moved quickly to secure Keenum, which might be a sign that they were never in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes as the clock ticked down, and Minnesota surpassed Denver as the clear leader for his services.

All this as the free agent "soft opening" winds down while the official new league season opens at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Cousins, selected 102 overall by Washington in 2012, is one of just three players on the Vikings current roster who were part of the 2012 rookie class.

Packers: Green Bay reached a verbal agreement with tight end Jimmy Graham, according to a source, and plan to sign him when free agency opens Wednesday afternoon. He is coming off yet another injury-plagued season but continues to find teams willing to pay him, lining up a one-year deal with the Cardinals for $20 million, plus an option for another season for another $20 million.

After signing free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to a deal, the Vikings are 10/1 to win the 2019 Super Bowl.

The Cardinals, due to their salary-cap limitations, were a long shot to land Cousins - the most high-profile of this year's free agents. "Some of the most incredible, crazy, miraculous moments of my life happened this past year".

Because he'll be throwing to the sure hands of Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph, behind a line that should allow fewer than the 41 sacks Cousins suffered in 2017, I ultimately think the change in addresses will simply make Cousins basically the same player he was in Washington. To get there, they needed to find their missing piece at quarterback - an issue of instability they've had for years that might now be remedied with Cousins under center.

Kirk Cousins spent the first six years of his National Football League career with Washington, but he'll now start his next chapter with the Vikings for the 2018 season. Cousins' record during that time: 24-23-1. ESPN reported that Cousins will sign with the Vikings, but McCartney said no decision has been made yet by his client.

The best thing? He's a work in progress who has the potential to be the Vikings' solution at quarterback for a long time. With the Vikings having advanced to the NFC Championship in 2017, losing 38-7 at Philadelphia, Cousins was acquired with the goal of taking them to the Super Bowl.
