MMQB’s Peter King takes his swing at QB landing spots

By Matthew Coller

This offseason has the potential to be one of the wildest in recent memory with so many teams in the market for a quarterback. On Monday, long-time NFL writer Peter King offered his opinion on how the game of quarterback musical chairs will play out.

King is putting his money on the Vikings having the same two quarterbacks as last season with Case Keenum returning and the team working out a deal with Bridgewater. He wrote:

“Keenum will likely be more inclined to go somewhere with no summer competition for the starting job (Buffalo?), but he also knows his team intimately here, and he knows (or should know) how he’d flourish under new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. Bridgewater … I have no idea. What do you make of a guy who hasn’t played for two years, and who was not a sure long-term thing the last time he played? Seems the comfort-level play for him would be to stay for an incentive-laden deal.”

Here’s how King sees the dust settling with other teams that have QB questions:

Denver Broncos: Kirk Cousins

Arizona Cardinals: AJ McCarron

Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold & Sam Bradford

New York Jets: Baker Mayfield & Josh McCown

New York Giants: Josh Allen

Buffalo Bills: Josh Rosen

Baltimore Ravens: Lamar Jackson

Miami Dolphins: Tyrod Taylor

We will know by the franchise tag deadline whether the Vikings are in on Kirk Cousins. Clearly if they tag Keenum, they are not in the Cousins sweepstakes. The Vikings were linked to AJ McCarron by NFL Network last week.

If the Vikings keep Bridgewater but let Keenum walk, then Josh McCown could become a top target, especially with his previous experience working under new OC John DeFilippo.
