Kirk Cousins is heading to visit the Vikings facility but don’t let that fool you; Captain Kirk is going to be the next quarterback to lead the Purple People Eaters up there in Minnesota. The Vikings beat out the Broncos, Jets, Cardinals, and any other team to sign Kirk Cousins. The deal is fully guaranteed for three years and the reported offer sits around $84 million which would make Cousins one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL.

Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report the news:

Cousins agent put out the following statement to Schefter but it seems pretty obvious that he is just holding his tongue until the terms are officially official and Cousins signed his name on the dotted line.

“No final decisions have been made,” McCartney said. “The plan is to visit Minnesota first. That’s all we can say right now.”

The three-year deal would put Cousins back on the market after his age 32 season. Minnesota had to make a move for a quarterback. Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater, and Case Keenum all hit the market as unrestricted free agents. Keenum has already signed with the Broncos and now it appears that all three will be playing for different organizations in 2018. A.J. McCarron is now the only other prominent quarterback on the market outside of those former Vikings signal callers.

It remains to be seen if Cousins can take the Vikings further than the NFC title game. Cousins has a career record of 26-30-1 over his 6 NFL seasons. Frankly, that’s not good enough but the Vikings have a lot more talent than the Redskins do. There may be a reason why the Redskins picked Alex Smith instead considering they know Cousins the best.
