The Vikings drafted Bridgewater with the 32nd overall pick in the 2014 draft. In either case, Spielman would have signed a quarterback for a very reasonable and safe price. Keenum fell into the flawless system under former offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, surrounded by a ton of weapons on offense, an offensive line that allowed him the freedom to extend plays with his legs and with the support of the No. 1 defense in the NFL.
The Eagles, who signed Bradford to a contract extension after 2015, were reportedly interested in bringing Cousins to Philadelphia if the Redskins had decided not to franchise tag him.
The Brownwood, Texas native saw his best season in his five seasons in the National Football League past year with the Vikings and make a notable playoff run, as both Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater battled injuries last season.
"I can tell you what I heard over and over again", an agent said at the combine, "is that this will go down in history as what not to do with your quarterback".
In three years as the starter in Washington, Cousins threw for 13,176 yards, 81 touchdowns and 36 interceptions while completing 67 percent of his passes.
Keenum started eight games that season, which wound up being Kubiak's final year as head coach with the Texans.
Cousins initially tagged the Vikings and the Jets at the bottom of the letter, but swiftly removed any reference to his suitors. But is he the franchise quarterback these teams so desperately need? Last season's NFC championship game losers are clearly an attractive option for the 29-year-old, with a loaded roster and the added bonus of playing at least 9 games a year in a dome.
Still, in 2016 Cousins' side proposed a three-year deal for $19 million per year with all of it guaranteed. Not everyone in the game thinks the Redskins made a mistake by not going that high, saying Cousins isn't enough of a game-changer to warrant that sort of deal. What the Vikings got on their end from this deal was short-term stability rooted in a quarterback who filled in admirably for an injured Sam Bradford and did more than just right the ship.
The Vikings aren't the only team that has checked with Brees and his agent regarding the future Hall of Famer's availability. 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.
But none of the last 12, first-round quarterbacks of the previous five drafts reached the playoffs in year one.
