Cousins’ agent acknowledges plan to visit Minnesota first

Kirk Cousins will be making a free-agency visit, after all.

Agent Mike McCartney says that Cousins will visit the Vikings once free agency opens.

These are tough days when you have to release a er who means so much to your organization, to your team, Gutekunst said. Jordy Nelson is one of the great Packers who have ed here.

Nelson, who was scheduled to make $9.25 million in base salary and count $12.5 million against the cap, turns 33 in May. He made only 53 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns last season when Rodgers missed nine-plus games with a broken collarbone.

Still, Nelson is expected to find a healthy market with several teams in need of receiver help.

I think it’s only natural as ers get older, you see some physical decline, Gutekunst said when asked whether he had seen decline after Nelson’s knee injury in 2015. But I think Jordy is a very good er. He’ll contribute for somebody next year.

Shamar Stephen (27), Vikings An above-average run defender who blended in along Minnesota’s rich defensive line, someone could pay him surprisingly big money to become a fulltime starter.

That left the Cardinals’ QB depth chart barren. Every team wants to own Boardwalk in the NFL’s game of quarterback Monopoly, and the Cardinals couldn’t even land Baltic Avenue.

They had to throw money at someone, and Sam Bradford could be a fine short-term solution. The money he’ll be paid, however, is not so fine.

Bradford is 30 years old and has endured repeated knee issues. That started in 2013 when he tore his left ACL seven games into the season. Then he ripped apart the same ACL during a preseason game in 2014.

In 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings, his team made the playoffs and advanced to the NFC Championship Game despite getting just one full game out of its Week 1 starting quarterback. Bradford had a sore knee and was replaced by Case Keenum as the starter in Week 2; he appeared in one more game before landing on injured reserve in November. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said March 1 the quarterback has a degenerative condition, via NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
