Kirk Cousins is the biggest name on the NFL free agent market, and the potential contract figures that have been tossed around very much reflect that.
Via multiple reports, Cousins is leaning heavily towards the Minnesota Vikings. it's tough to blame him considering the multitude of weapons the Vikes have, plus their strong defense to boot. Minnesota is also willing to shell out a lot of money to shore up their quarterback situation in a crowded NFC.
Per NFL insider Adam Caplan, the Vikings are willing to drop upwards to $27 million per season for Cousins' services.
Caplan went on Sirius XM Radio and dropped some knowledge on us about the ongoing negotiations with Cousins, and it ought to make folks in the Twin Cities smile from ear to ear.
The Vikings were Super Bowl contenders with Case Keenum at the helm. This is no shot at the former Houston Cougar, but Cousins puts Minnesota in a different realm, especially with the weapons they already possess.
The addition of Cousins would arguably make Minnesota preseason NFC favorites, even over the likes of Philadelphia.
We'll have to wait and see, but it appears the Vikings are willing to pay big money to make that happen.
