The North Star State might have a new star quarterback. Kirk Cousins likely to sign a blockbuster deal that sends him to Minnesota—3 year, $86 Million fully guaranteed according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Once the deal becomes official, Cousins will be the first QB in NFL history to change teams after putting up 4000+ passing yards in each of the last 3 seasons.

Betting against the house, Kirk Cousins opted to be franchise tagged back-to-back years rather than signing a long-term deal to keep him in Washington. The 29-year-old veteran rolled the dice and is set to cash out as the highest paid player in the league…. I think he likes that. And so does Doug Baldwin. Seahawks Pro Bowl wide receiver tweeted out his appreciation to Cousins calling him a “hero.”

Kirk is not only a hero but also a game-changer when it comes to NFL deals. Unlike the NBA or MLB, there has never been a fully-guaranteed contract in the NFL… until now. Of course, it is not a done deal but Cousins is expected to have dinner with Vikings coaches and decision makers tonight before visiting the brand-new team facility on Thursday.

Big contracts mean big expectations. After reaching the NFC Title game last year, Vikings fans are hoping to “skol” all the way to a Super Bowl with Cousins in the purple and gold.
