Kirk Cousins: Minnesota Vikings Will Sign Free Agent QB

Kirk Cousins: Minnesota Vikings Will Sign Free Agent QB

Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a contract with the Minnesota Vikings when free agency officially begins on Wednesday, and the structure of the deal should excite his fellow players. He finished 10th among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring, which is an impressive feat considering he went undrafted in fantasy drafts that year.

With Cousins, the Vikings are getting one of the more prolific quarterbacks in the NFL.

"No final decisions have been made", Cousins' agent Mike McCartney said Tuesday.

This spring, the Redskins had finally had enough, and, instead of negotiating with Cousins once again, they traded for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, opening the door for Cousin's departure. His market will likely come down to the Vikings, Jets or possibly the Cardinals.

There were plenty of rumors tying Cousins to the Vikings, and now it's all but official.

The Vikings found success in 2017 with Case Keenum at quarterback but by all indications, they viewed him as a good backup.

Case Keenum is moving on to Denver, where he will reportedly sign a 2-year deal worth $36 million, with only the first year guaranteed. The rash of injuries to quarterbacks makes the guarantee a risky deal, but at three years, Minnesota seems willing to pull the trigger on it. Cousins only got the team to the postseason once in three years as the starter, and the team lost the one playoff game they had.

But Keenum and fellow Vikings quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater are eligible for unrestricted free agency, and the team chose to move on.

Cousins threw for 4,093 yards last season - the third straight year he has topped 4,000 yards.

Cousins has spent his entire National Football League career so far in Washington, starting all 48 regular season games across the last three seasons and throwing a career total of 99 touchdowns against 55 interceptions. The 11-time Pro Bowler led the Saints to victory in Super Bowl XLIV, a championship loaded with symbolism as New Orleans recovered from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina five years earlier.
