This is a rumor that most people have taken very seriously, and that heated up fast last week when it was reported that the Vikings were allowing all of their QB's to walk.
But as of last night, the rumors got some serious backing, and even put some numbers on the board. It's being reported that the Vikings are willing to offer Cousins 3 years/$91 mil, FULLY guaranteed.
Yes, you read that right, and good lord, that is a big deal.
That number is massive and I don't think people realize just how hard it is to get fully guaranteed deals in the NFL, let alone one that has that much riding on it.
I am still not sold on Kirk Cousins, and while I know Minnesota is a huge step forward compared to the dumpster fire that is the Redskins, I still would not be willing to risk $100M on him, especially when my team may be at it's peak chance to win a Super Bowl; it's not the time to throw caution to the wind.
We will follow this closely but at this point is would be insanity for Cousins to go to the miserable Jets over the Vikings, unless they give him something like $200M.
