On the money: Kirk Cousins signs record National Football League deal for a quarterback

Keidel: Kirk Cousins Did Jets A Favor By Going To Vikings

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network says that the Vikings are the leader to get Cousins and that the deal on the table is worth $84 million. "I can do a press conference to talk about a contract and then go from there".

"If anybody in this city or this state has a question about their commitment, I think this contract shows that they're all in", Cousins said.

Team owners Zygi Wilf and Mark Wilf were willing to approve the investment, hopeful that Cousins can be the keystone to a championship squad.

Cousins has been in Minnesota over the past couple of days visiting with the Vikings. As long as he stays healthy throughout the summer, Cousins will also represent the eighth starting quarterback for a season opener in the past nine years.

Likely candidates to pass Cousins are Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who are both expected to sign contract extensions.

"As the salary cap continues to grow, that's just going to continue to change, " said Cousins, 29, who played the previous six seasons with Washington and will continue to wear No. 8. The Vikings wanted him so much that they let all three of their free-agent quarterbacks-Sam Bradford, Case Keenum and Teddy Bridgewater-walk, after a season in which they reached the NFC Championship Game, in order to have the resources to land him. "It was going to come down to Mike McCartney, my agent, being to be able to negotiate with the team on Monday and Tuesday and see if, from a business standpoint, it could match up".

They still have space to make more improvements this month, though and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson was already at the new facility on Thursday for a visit. He had a 26-30-1 record as a starter in Washington, something he is looking to greatly improve. "Sometimes it's hard to tell teams no, but I have a lot of respect for how everybody handled it, and we're just thrilled to have Kirk here in Minnesota".

Cousins was in Twin Cities for the week leading up to the February 4 Super Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium. "I rented a vehicle and drove out here and drove by Winter Park and drove through Eagan. I called Julie (his wife) near the end of the week and said, 'Everything is checking the boxes here'". He also likely will be working with running back Dalvin Cook, who got off to a hot start as a rookie in 2017 before suffering a torn ACL in Week 4.

"One thing (the Vikings) don't have to worry about is his passion, his commitment, his work ethic", Don Cousins said. "He will give it everything he's got".

"Will we win football games here?" If the Vikings do make the Super Bowl, they will happily pay that additional $6 million in incentives to Cousins. Cousins said. "The answer is, I believe we will".
