Kirk Cousins isn't the only name dominating National Football League headlines on Tuesday and although the Denver Broncos look to have missed out in the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes-despite reports to the effect they weren't 100 percent committed in the free agent signal-caller-it doesn't mean they'll remain quiet.
The Vikings, who were subsequently blown out at Philadelphia in the conference championship, chose to let all three of their QBs - Keenum, Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater - test free agency.
Keenum has been allowed to hit the open market by the Vikings despite leading them to the NFC championship game last season.
Keenum completed more than two-thirds of his passes and finished the season with 3,547 passing yards, 22 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.More news: Qualcomm slays a lion, baits a dragon

Keenum worked with former Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak, now a senior personnel advisor in Denver's front office, with the Houston Texans from 2012-13 having joined as an undrafted free agent.
The 30-year-old will look to help steer the Broncos to a bounce-back season after they went 5-11 in 2017.
Despite his swings and misses at QB before, Elway said, "Believe me, I'm not done swinging and missing". We just have to figure out a way to get it right.
"I still think we're not too far away", Elway said at the combine. We didn't play well there a year ago. "Obviously, we have to get better at that position". There were some things that we should have done differently that we didn't do.
