Vikings Not Expected To Franchise Tag Case Keenum

  • Report Vikings not expected to franchise-tag QB Case Keenum

For months, there's been speculation that Minnesota would use the franchise tag on Keenum to help make sure the offense remains in great shape for the 2018 season.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Keenum will enter free agency after the Vikings decided against franchise tagging the quarterback. It would not only send the wrong signal to Cousins, but it would put Keenum in a bad spot and it would create a situation where Keenum's tag number ate up the salary cap space designed to sign Cousins. And numerous rumors from this year's speculation season have the Vikings linked to the player who will likely become the most expensive name in this year's pool of free agents.

Keenum stepped in and did an admirable job leading the Vikings offense after Sam Bradford's knee injury in week one against the Saints. I believe the Vikings are waiting to see what the Broncos offer for Cousins in order to see if they can offer the same, more or if they need to walk.

Bears release McPhee, Demps
The Bears signed McPhee to a five-year contract in 2015 after he spent his first four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens . McPhee, 29, was due $7.2 million in base salary this year, along with a $200,000 roster bonus.


Tagging Keenum would have meant a starting point of almost $24 million per year with Keenum, and that simply wasn't going to happen, not with Cousins available for somewhere between $28-30 million per season. However, they don't intend that Keenum, probably not perceived as someone who is good enough to take them over the hump, eat up so much of that money.

Is this who Keenum is, or was it just a one time deal? There are also rumors that the Vikings want to bring back former first rounder Teddy Bridgewater, but it seems their priorities will be Cousins and Keenum. Like the Bills, the Vikings have countless options.

Coming off an appearance in the NFC Championship game, the Vikings are a team in "win now" mode, and could be looking an experienced and proven quarterback like Kirk Cousins. This means that he will become a free agent when free agency begins.
