First QB domino has fallen.
QB race is on.
Adam Schefter has it first and as he said it’s rhe first quarterback domino to fall in this race for free agents.
Keenum started 15 games for the Vikings this season and led the team to the NFC Championship loss in Philadelphia. Still, as free agency opened up for negotiations yesterday the thought was that the Vikings, and Keenum would both be moving on.
Rumors say the deal will Ben in the ballpark of three years, $18-$20 million.
The announcement of Keenum’s intentions will likely expedite the rest of the quarterback process that will include somebody needing to come to Minnesota, will that be Cousins?
