Our next off-season controversy ...
ESPN speculating on where Kirk Cousins ends up.
We are one of the many destinations they consider ...
Why it could work
With Sam Bradford's health a major concern and Teddy Bridgewater's career in question, the Vikings have become a version of the Bradford-era St. Louis Rams: a team that might contend if only its quarterback could play. The Vikings have zero dollars committed to quarterbacks beyond this season, and they have a history under general manager Rick Spielman of adding veteran quarterbacks such as Brett Favre, Donovan McNabb and Bradford.
Why it couldn't work
Bradford could return to health and play well enough for Minnesota to re-sign him during the season, which would remove the Vikings from the market for another veteran.
Cousins will be looking for, and probably getting, Stafford money. No thank you.
Still not certain how good he is, or will be.
i'd consider giving cousins a kaepernick style pay as you go deal at $20m/yr...maybe two years guaranteed....
If we were in the market for him, that's not even close to good enough. I believe he's making 24 million this year alone from being franchise tagged multiple years. He's not going to take anything that resembles a pay cut.
Hate the message, not the messenger.
Enjoy the process; crave the goal.
