The 2018 Kirk Cousins Megathread

Recommended Posts

My thoughts:

1. We all knew that Cousins would get the biggest NFL contract ever, no surprise. 

2. I trust Rick and Brz to already have a plan and budget in place for the next 3 years.

3. If it is a 3-year deal, that is really easy to work with. Overall, the money doesn't bother me a bit.

4. Cousins is the best QB we have had since prime Culpepper.

5. Cousins is only 29. For the first time since Culpepper we have a legitimate, long-term QB.

The key part missing from that tweet is that it appears to be a fully guaranteed contract.

though it's not official it's looking darn likely that cousins signs with us.

considering cousins isn't one of the top 10 QBs in the league and it's only a three year deal, is it likely that the vikings are viewing him as a high-end stop gap? 

for those with PFF advanced stats or whatever, how good is cousins in play action? it'll likely be a big part of our offense since zimmer likes to run the ball and we have dalvin cook back there.

 

also, it's going to be super, super weird seeing teddy on another team if we don't bring him back as a backup :(

If true we got Cousins for exactly what I wanted, pay no attention to Sherman as that was a pipe dream thus why I didn't have a salary

2007    Tarvaris Jackson (12) / Kelly Holcomb (3) / Brooks Bollinger (1)

Teams aren't permitted to arrange visits during the negotiating window. The league's media operation is reporting that the Vikings have essentially violated this provision.

I believe this is a huge part of why Ownership & Rick wanted to truely find their QB.

Until Cousins blows out his knee in Week 7. 

Ptooie!  No curse!  :S

Where are you hearing this? I know that it has been rumored about Cousins but Brees had something like 52% guaranteed in his deal.

Nothing about Brees's deal is reflective of the current market

correct. hopefully nothing has been "arranged."

which i guess would be substantiated by appointments made or flights scheduled.

NFLNetwork is quoting Ian Rapaport as saying such.
