Should the Broncos lose the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, they'll turn to Plan B -- Teddy Bridgewater.

Per Cecil Lammey of 104.3 The Fan, Bridgewater is among a trio of quarterback options for Denver to consider if Cousins, the biggest fish in the NFL pond, lands elsewhere. Bridgewater's teammate in Minnesota, Case Keenum, and Cincinnati's AJ McCarron are the other potential targets in the second-tier bracket.

Bridgewater, 25, is expected to hit unrestricted free agency on March 14 after the Vikings, a top suitor for Cousins, reportedly won't argue to have his rookie contract tolled, which would keep him off the open market. The league claimed Tuesday it has yet to formally decide on his status.
