Did Mike Zimmer throw shade at Case Keenum?

02 March 2018

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is unlikely to get the franchise tag from the Minnesota Vikings, so what's next for the former first-round pick?

Despite playing at a borderline MVP level for the Vikings last season, Zimmer would never fully commit to Keenum as the team's starting quarterback, and that kind of treatment throughout the season could play into Keenum's ultimate decision, whether or not the Vikings are able to land Kirk Cousins in free agency. Zimmer said he does believe in Bradford, who has a history of knee injuries and was decked by a bone bruise in the second game of the 2017 season. We will continue to evolve this process.

Joking aside, Zimmer made it clear he doesn't want the quarterback decision to compromise the foundation he has built on defense, one of the league's top-ranked units.

The free agent market opens March 14 and Keenum, Bridgewater and Bradford could all be attractive options for quarterback-needy teams.

When the new NFL league year starts on March 14, almost a third of the league will be looking for an upgrade at quarterback, and one of them will be the Denver Broncos.

Cavs suspend JR Smith for game versus 76ers
Without him, the Cavs lost 108-97 at home against the 76ers but remained third in the Eastern Conference with a 36-25 record. In his 10 appearances in February, James averaged 27.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 10.5 assists and 54.6 per cent shooting.

Rumors have picked up recently that the Minnesota Vikings are about to go all in for Kirk Cousins, another name that at one point was linked to Cleveland - although mostly by those on the outside who merely speculated.

"When we get back, we'll meet and finalize our game plan as we go forward".

SHURMUR ON STEFANSKI: Giants coach Pat Shurmur didn't get his first choice for offensive coordinator after the Vikings blocked him from interviewing quarterbacks coach Kevin Stefanski for the position in mid-February.

Good quarterbacks rarely hit free agency in their primes, so Cousins is expected to start a bidding war among at least five teams.

Sam Bradford has had a hard time staying healthy since entering the league in 2010 with the St. Louis Rams.

Infinity War all sets to hit the screen on April 27
Disney also set release dates for 28 untitled films through February 2023 from Marvel, Pixar and Disney live action. You won't have to wait as long to see Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War in theaters in North America.

"It's really the $64,000 question with all three of these guys, right?" "That room is exactly what we want it to be. Instead, Cousins could end up seeking a deal as short as three or four years, with salaries that are nearly fully guaranteed each season", Robinson wrote.

Minnesota has a good defense, with an offense that has a ton of excellent players at receiver and running back.

Zimmer said Bridgewater would not have been dressed for games in December if the coaches didn't rate him as game-ready. "He is a competitor; he's got the heart of a Lion", Zimmer said. They know how we do things now.

It's easy to see why Cousins, who has completed an average of 67% of his passes, thrown over 4,000 yards, and thrown 81 touchdowns to 36 interceptions the past three years, should command a record-setting deal.

"I love Teddy. I've said that before. We've got a lot of holes that we have to fill this year", Spielman added. "Then, really, what we have to try to do is figure out what is the best scenario for us".

Joshua: Parker tougher fight than Wilder
The 6-feet-4, 240-pound southpaw is certain Wilder hasn't fought anyone with his combination of intelligence, power and skill. I don't think he has a promoter at the moment, so if he doesn't - Deontay just pick up the phone, drop me a line.
