Kirk Cousins Signing Mind Blowing 3 Year MEGA CONTRACT!

Had the Jets been able to secure a more traditional five-year deal with only a portion of the contract guaranteed, that would have been a far more palatable alternative. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is second.

The quarterback reports started with the Denver Broncos attracting Case Keenum for a two-year, $36 million contract. Short term deals are beneficial to the player.

The move from Washington to Minnesota should benefit Cousins in additional ways.

If it feels like I'm killing Cousins, it's accidental. I only wish I'd done it last week.

The free agent quarterback is on the verge of a big payday at age 29, his first time on the open market. He's quickly risen to elite status in the league, throwing for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons. After six seasons on the East Coast, Cousins will return to the Midwest to continue his pro career.

Amendola is set to join the Patriots AFC East rivals the Miami Dolphins on a two-year deal. They didn't, with Washington wanted Cousins to prove his 2015 campaign wasn't a fluke. That was brought up as a suggestion by Cousins team. Cousins' record during that time: 24-23-1. His camp didn't formally counter an offer that included $72 million guaranteed for injury only.

The Vikings began the day about $50 million under their salary cap, according to NFL Players Association data, and the deal with Cousins will take up nearly half of that with the prospect of expensive extensions looming in the coming year for young players such as linebackers Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks and wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

Cousins still managed put together another 4,000-yard season, and, interested in testing the market for his services, wanted to wait until March before discussing any long-term contract with the Redskins. The team traded for quarterback Alex Smith in January, sending a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller to the Chiefs. That's how oddsmakers are on Minnesota following the signing of Cousins. Additionally, Kirk Cousins isn't just the best available free-agent quarterback this spring, he's the best free-agent quarterback since Brett Favre and Peyton Manning switched teams in 2008 and 2013, respectively. The Jets also are expected to add running back Isaiah Crowell, who had been with the Browns.

While Case Keenum was solid in his one season and Teddy Bridgewater will always have a place in our hearts, this was the right move for the Vikings. The New York Jets will reportedly shift their attention to Bridgewater. When injuries and other factors led to Griffin leaving Washington, Cousins became the full-time starter. Yes, Kirk Cousins. I like that.

"No final decisions have been made", McCartney said. Fully guaranteed, short so it gives the player the power, and gives the player more leverage and control over the organization.

Added former National Football League executive Joe Banner: "Cousins has had $114M guaranteed in his last two contracts covering only four years".

Patience paid off for Cousins.
