New York Jets Turn Focus to Teddy Bridgewater

But it's easy to see similarities between Bridgewater and Mike Glennon, who was signed to essentially a one-year commitment by the Chicago Bears last offseason.

Case Keenum at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, January 21.

The mass exodus by the three quarterbacks is logical considering the Vikings are on the verge of signing Kirk Cousins to a three-year, $84 million contract. The Vikings, ostensibly, would be signing Cousins - whose career record as a starter with the Redskins is 26-30-1 - because they believe he can take them a step further.

Despite his continued individual success for the Redskins over the course of the last three seasons, the NFC East franchise was hesitant to give Cousins the type of money he was seeking.

Four days after the Browns dropped out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes by trading for Tyrod Taylor, the Broncos appear to have followed suit. Both New York and Arizona are attractive options for various reasons. We didn't play well there previous year. But the three-year contract he will reportedly sign with the Minnesota Vikings may be a watershed moment in National Football League history.

Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch all started games for the Broncos, the latter pair failing to win in any of their appearances in a miserable first year for head coach Vance Joseph. That list is now trimmed down to the Jets, Vikings and Cardinals. The Vikings reached out to Brees Monday, according to the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That amounts to $28 million per year.

Though Keenum played well last season -- 22 touchdowns and 98.3 QB rating -- he was either putrid or mediocre in his previous six seasons. After calling Washington home for the past six years, the team has chose to move on to another option and, in turn, my family and I will be moving on as well.Knowing I will not be putting on a Redskins jersey next season, it's hard to look back at all that's taken place and not become emotional.

With those numbers, Cousins represents an immediate upgrade from the Vikings' previous quarterback trio -- Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater.
