NFL: Vikings have signed Cousins to record contract

The Minnesota Vikings have decided to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to the richest contract in NFL history. Cousins was allowed to hit the open market by the Washington Redskins, and has signed a three-year, $84 million contact with the Vikings.

This deal Cousins and Vikings signed leapfrogs the last month’s deal between Jimmy Garoppolo and San Francisco 49ers, which was reportedly a five-year, $137.5 million contract.

This is seen as an astonishing contract because Cousins’ $84 million is fully guaranteed by the Vikings. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the deal contains an additional $6 in incentives that could take the total value of the deal to $90 million.

Cousins was drafted by the Redskins back in 2012 and became their starter in 2015.
