Kirk Cousins – Noteworthy – Transaction
QB Kirk Cousins plans to sign a three-year, fully guaranteed $84 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, multiple outlets reported. Cousins, who will receive $28 million per season, would become the highest-paid quarterback in the league, topping the $27.5 million annually that Jimmy Garoppolo will pocket from the San Francisco 49ers. Cousins, who has played two seasons for the Redskins on a franchise tag, topped the 4,000-yard mark for the third straight year in 2017. He finished with 4,093 yards passing, with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
