Done deal: Kirk Cousins signs with Vikings

By Judd Zulgad

Kirk Cousins officially became a Viking on Thursday afternoon as the team announced it had signed the veteran quarterback.

The Vikings did not release contract details but it is reported Cousins received a three-year deal calling for $84 million guaranteed. That will make him, for now, the NFL’s highest-paid quarterback.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported that Cousins’ deal contains another $6 million in incentives that could boost the total value of the deal to a maximum of $90 million.

Cousins, who started all 16 games for Washington during the previous three seasons, will be introduced to the Twin Cities media at 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

While in Washington, Cousins posted single-season records for the franchise in passing yards (4,917), completions (406), attempts (606) and matched the team record for 300-yard passing games (seven).

The post Done deal: Kirk Cousins signs with Vikings appeared first on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
