Kirk Cousins is predictably the top priority on Minnesota’s offseason shopping list.

The free-agent quarterback is on the verge of a big payday at age 29, his first time on the open market.

Cousins will meet Wednesday with the Vikings once the new league year begins, his agent Mike McCartney said Tuesday. ESPN reported, citing unnamed sources, Cousins will sign a fully guaranteed, three-year $84 million contract with the Vikings, but McCartney said no deal was in place and no decision has been made.

“We’ve only agreed to visit Minnesota first,” McCartney said.

The Vikings are banking on this being his last trip, too.

With contracts expiring for Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford, plenty of space under the salary cap and coming off an appearance in the NFC championship game, the Vikings have long presented the most desirable destination for Cousins.

Keenum, meanwhile, plans to sign with Denver, ESPN reported. He guided Minnesota to the NFC championship game after replacing an injured Bradford last season.

Keenum went 11-3 with 3,547 yards passing, 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions and threw that last-second heave to Stefon Diggs to stun the New Orleans Saints 29-24 in the playoffs.

Bradford to Arizona

A person with knowledge of the situation said Bradford and the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to a one-year, $20 million contract with a second-year option, also for $20 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because contracts cannot be made public until Wednesday.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, is known for his strong and accurate arm but he has struggled with injuries.

Just as word of the Bradford deal surfaced, the Cardinals released running back Adrian Peterson, saving about $2.9 million against the salary cap.

Brees stays put

The rest of the NFL can dispense with any notions of luring Drew Brees away from the team — and city — where the star quarterback has flourished for more than a decade now.

Two people familiar with the contract say Brees has agreed to a two-year, $50 million extension with the New Orleans Saints. The people say $27 million is guaranteed in the first year.

Brees turned 39 in January.

Chiefs deals

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to deals with wide receiver Sammy Watkins and middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens, filling two of their most glaring needs.

The 24-year-old Watkins intends to sign a $48 million, three-year contract with $30 million in guarantees, while the 25-year-old Hitchens agreed to a five-year deal, two people familiar with their decisions told the AP.

Watkins spent last season with the Los Angeles Rams, where he caught 39 passes for 593 yards and eight touchdowns.
