Kirk Cousins Plans to Sign With Vikings

$91 million for Cousins is ludicrous

Cards' Johnson to Cousins: 'You're coming to the desert'

The Broncos have always been considered to be on the short list of options for Cousins, along with the Jets and Vikings and Cardinals.

After falling a game short of the Super Bowl last season with Case Keenum under center, Minnesota provides Cousins with the best opportunity to win.

The 28-year-old is leaving the Washington Redskins after playing for the last two seasons under a franchise tag.

Cousins has been linked to the New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings, and both teams were originally tagged at the bottom of the letter along with the Redskins before being removed later. KUSA-TV in Denver reported he will receive at least $36 million over two years. Signing [Kirk] Cousins could alleviate the problems of quarterback longevity this team has dealt with in the past decade while also upgrading the position.

All those numbers suggest Cousins is a top 6 to 12 quarterback, but even good quarterbacks need good players around him.

So do you approve of the move?

The Jets have approximately $90 million in salary cap space while the Vikings could sign Cousins to replace Case Keenum.

Cousins spent the last four seasons with the Washington team, and was the starting qb since the 2015 season.

The Jets, Cardinals, Vikings and Broncos have been the names largely associated with pursuing the former Redskins QB, but it's not clear which of these teams are the ones ready to make the precedent setting move. From 1978-9 until now the Vikings have literally not had a quarterback play in full back-to-back seasons. They will pick fifth overall in this year's draft and could go after defensive end Bradley Chubb, running back Saquon Barkley or guard Quenton Nelson.

But he showed flashes of what he is capable of doing in the National Football League during the last game of the season against the New England Patriots, hauling in a 46-yard bomb from Bryce Petty. Why would teams let go of quarterbacks that are of this quality?

"There is no way I would be where I am today, without the leadership of the Redskins organization", Cousins wrote.

Cousins had mentioned in an interview that he would "love it" if the Denver Broncos are interested in him, which they are.
