The 2017 NFL offseason could see some of the league’s biggest names change teams. Two top quarterbacks are reportedly on the trade block, and the best running back of the last decade is close to being a free agent.

Kirk Cousins is currently under contract, but he might find a new home in the near future. Adrian Peterson’s future remains a mystery, and Tony Romo is set to be either traded or released.

Let’s take a look at where all three players might land this offseason.

Kirk Cousins

It had looked like the Washington Redskins intended to keep their starting quarterback, hitting him with the franchise tag and preventing him from becoming a free agent. That doesn’t mean, however, that Cousins will still be on the Redskins when the 2017 NFL season begins.

NFL Network’s Mike Silver believes that a trade between the Redskins and San Francisco 49ers is more likely than not to happen. New 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan reportedly wants Cousins, and the quarterback is reportedly interested in playing for his former offensive coordinator. Cousins has been one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks in each of the last two years, but Washington might not be thrilled to pay him the $24 million that he’s going to cost next season.

It’s unknown what kind of a deal it would take to land Cousins, though it might include future draft picks. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported last week that the Dallas Cowboys could potentially get involved and make it a three-way trade, sending Romo to Washington, though Dallas owner Jerry Jones shot down that rumor.

Tony Romo

While Cousins could still play for the Redskins in 2017, Romo will almost certainly find a new team this offseason. With Dak Prescott set to be Dallas’ starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, Romo will likely be either released or traded.

Romo would likely only go to a team that he could turn into a Super Bowl contender. The Denver Broncos were a good starting quarterback away from competing for a title last year, and they might be the frontrunners to land Romo. Mike Klis of KUSA reported that the Broncos are “ready to pursue” Romo if he’s released. Trevor Siemian had an 84.6 passer rating as Denver’s signal caller, and they also selected Paxton Lynch in the first round of last year’s draft.

The Houston Texans are also considered to be in the running to acquire Romo, following Brock Osweiler’s disastrous first season as the team’s starting quarterback. There’s also been speculation that Romo could land with the New York Jets or Kansas City Chiefs, though that seems unlikely.

Adrian Peterson

The Minnesota Vikings decided not to pick up the running back’s option for the 2017 season. Unless Peterson and the Vikings come to a new agreement before Thursday, the former MVP will have plenty of suitors in free agency.

The latest reports indicate that Peterson could consider the New England Patriots, with whom he might be willing to take less money, via The Boston Herald. New England is coming off their fifth Super Bowl championship under Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, and Peterson has just one playoff victory in his career. New England could soon be in the market for a new starting running back since the Patriots are reportedly preparing to lose him in free agency.

Peterson will consider a long list of teams in free agency. He’s mentioned the New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Texans as teams he could potentially join. The Green Bay Packers, Oakland Raiders and Cowboys have also been named as possible landing spots for Peterson in 2017.
