Kirk Cousins is taking his talents to Minnesota

Cousins is sacked by Von Miller

The signing of Kirk Cousins could get the Minnesota Vikings to the 2019 Super Bowl.

The Vikings check all the boxes Cousins ticked off publicly: guarantees, stability and the ability to win.

"We've only agreed to visit Minnesota first", McCartney said.

Cousins threw for 4,093 yards last season - the third straight year he has topped 4,000 yards. He mistakenly tagged the Vikings and Jets in the note on his personal website before quickly removing them, further igniting the rumors of his top destination choices. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 draft and was widely regarded as an afterthought with the Redskins mortgaging their future to trade up for Robert Griffin III. He started nine games in his first three seasons. He finished with 4,093 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions - and a Total QBR of 52.3, his lowest as the full-time starter.

After that season, the Redskins and Cousins couldn't agree on a long-term deal, so the team placed the franchise tag on him. The first? Case Keenum, who quarterbacked the Vikings last season, is headed to Denver.

According to Schefter, Cousins' $84 million would be fully guaranteed, making it a virtually unprecedented deal in the NFL.

It isn't often a Minnesota team beats a big-market team like the New York Jets for the best available free agent in any sport, let alone football, but it appears the Vikings have done so. Reports say Keenum will sign with the Denver Broncos, while Sam Bradford, who replaced Bridgewater, will sign with the Arizona Cardinals.

And, for the Broncos, that list of quarterbacks in the post-Manning era will nearly certainly gain another name this year when the team drafts a quarterback with the No. 5 pick.

The Vikings have reportedly offered quarterback Kirk Cousins a three-year, $86 million deal. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have formed a risky young duo of wide receivers, combining for 2,125 yards during the regular season.

Two NFL quarterbacks find new homes while one other stays in place.

Much can happen, of course, and the Vikings seem to have a penchant for signing quarterbacks whose knees are one awkward step from exploding, but Spielman has made the bold purchase at the right time.
