Kirk Cousins' $90 million deal involves insane incentives

Kirk Cousins' $90 million deal involves insane incentives

Minnesota certainly has the defensive pieces in place to make a Super Bowl run. "Yes, it's a three-year deal, but the expectation from both sides is that we raise our kids here and if everything goes as planned, we're here for a long time".

Obviously, the Vikings, who never have won the big game, would settle for one.

"There's nothing I can pave unless people come after me", Cousins said. "I can do a press conference to talk about a contract and then go from there".

Sando named three signal callers he believes will benefit the most, topping the list with Cousins.

"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.

"This is a lifetime deal". It's the first one in National Football League history for as long as three years.

Cousins earned $44 million playing under the franchise tag in each of his past two seasons in Washington and was a rare commodity as a proven, sub-30-year-old quarterback with very little injury history when he hit the open market.

The Minnesota Vikings have made it clear of their Super Bowl intentions, with the signing of free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins.

After stepping in as starting QB for the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2 of the 2017 season, Keenum led the team to a 13-3 record, including a trip to the NFC Championship game where they lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

Zimmer is spot on with the fact that Cousins has had to prove himself. "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".

The welcome party began on Wednesday night, when Cousins and his wife dined with several members of the organization in downtown Minneapolis. On Thursday, Cousins visited U.S. Bank Stadium and the new TCO Performance Center. This deal averages $28 million per year, the highest in the NFL. Per a source with knowledge of the deal, Cousins' contract has a no-trade clause.

In what is viewed as a groundbreaking contract, Cousins' $84m is fully guaranteed, while ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the deal contains a further $6m in incentives that could take its total value to $90million. The fully guaranteed part, I know it's the first time, but also when you have an opportunity to get a potential franchise quarterback, you know where the leverage is going.

Did the Vikings make the right decision? . It is believed the New York Jets offered more, but McCartney wouldn't confirm that.

Specifically, it says a lot about their commitment to Cousins.
