NFL Insider: Kirk Cousins Will Reportedly Sign With The Vikings For $27 Million A Season

With NFL offseason free agency transactions in a frenzy, the hottest commodity on the market still remains without a team. That may not be for long.

The Washington Redskins opted for former Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith over paying Kirk Cousins a massive long-term contract, but it appears as if one if not numerous teams are willing to pay him what he’s looking for. One of those teams reportedly includes the Vikings.

After reports that alleged a figure of a three-year, $91 million contract with a record amount of guaranteed money was being offered to Cousins by Minnesota with, NFL insider Adam Caplan says he’s gotten word that the QB will indeed choose to sign with the Vikings via a deal that will pay him a whopping $27 million per season.

Is it three for $91M? or is it $27M per year? It can’t be both cause the math is off.... by $10M, which makes me think nobody REALLY knows. 

Guess they knew..

The quarterback-needy Vikings have taken a decisive lead in the open-market chase for Kirk Cousins.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Cousins -- the prize of free agency -- is likely to sign a three-year deal from the Vikings that includes approximately $84 million guaranteed. As expected, that tops the $27.5 million per year Jimmy Garoppoloearned from the 49ers.

Cousins is slated to attend dinner with coaches and other essential Vikings personnel on Wednesday before visiting the club's brand new facility on Thursday.

 

 

"They believe they've got him," Rapoport tweeted Tuesday, adding: "They do not want him to leave the building."

As he has for weeks, Rapoport described Minnesota as being in the "driver's seat" for Cousins, the 29-year-old veteran who also drew interest from the Broncos before Denver opted to pursue ex-Vikings passer Case Keenum.

The Cardinals and Jets remain in the mix, too, but hopes are fading for anyone not named the Vikings. While New York boasts more salary-cap space than any team league-wide, it's the Vikings who can dangle the prize of a Super Bowl-ready roster.

Despite Keenum's marvelous work last season, the Vikings made it a priority to address their quarterback room. In Cousins, they nab the only quarterback outside of Philip Rivers with at least 4,000-plus passing yards and 25 touchdowns through the air in each of the past three seasons.

Entering his seventh campaign, Cousins has ranked as one of the NFL's top 10 quarterbacks since 2015, measuring third in completion percentage and game-winning drives.

In Minnesota, Cousins would guide a Vikingsattack flush with receiving talent and returning rookie running back Dalvin Cook to go along with one of the NFL's deepest and grittiest defensive squads.

It's possible the Jets, armed with barrels of money, make a last-ditch play for Cousins, but the Vikings will have their man in their building first -- and they don't plan to let him escape.

Sterling looked really good in the game or so he got real playing time.

It was a smart move by Bowles letting him play during garbage time of a lost season. Otherwise he never would have been discovered. Ohh wait, he only got him in the game because Jenkins got hurt 🙄 lol
