The NFL's free agency negotiating window officially opened at 11 a.m. today, meaning the Vikings can legally reach out to Kirk Cousins and talk about a contract. 

On Sunday, NFL insider Adam Caplan reported that the Vikings plan to offer Cousins a fully guaranteed three-year contract worth at least $27 million per season. 

Caplan's report might coincide with one Monday morning from NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, who says there are two teams – and maybe a third – who are willing to fully guarantee a contract for the former Redskins quarterback. 

Rapoport adds that Minnesota remains in the "driver's seat" to land Cousins, but don't expect Cousins to make a final decision until Wednesday or Thursday at the earliest. 

Meanwhile, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Vikings have "stayed in touch" with quarterback Sam Bradford and that do plan to talk to Case Keenum's agent.
