With the Vikings' receiving corps, the expectation is Cousins puts them over the top as an NFC contender. For 2018, the Vikings will have to make very few sacrifices to accommodate Cousins.
"No final decisions have been made", Cousins' agent Mike McCartney said Tuesday. "That's all we can say". Last season, in another tagged season, Cousins got 4,093 yards but threw for 27 TD's.
The 29-year-old quarterback was drafted by Washington in 2012 - the same year they took Robert Griffin III second overall. A quarterback in his prime who's been to a Pro Bowl nearly never becomes available like this. He was hit with the franchise tag the past two seasons, but the team has opted to move on from him this year. The following year, Cousins reached the Pro Bowl after finishing with 4,917 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Cousins was getting paid during his franchise tagged years, but it required taking on some risk knowing that an injury or even a drop in performance would lower his value.
The Vikings spent first-round picks on Christian Ponder in 2011 and Teddy Bridgewater in 2014 and shipped three draft picks to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2016 after Bridgewater tore multiple ligaments in his left knee.
Cousins was the biggest free agent this offseason, and joins a Vikings team with a dominant defense and several versatile playmakers on offense. Minnesota has a number of offensive weapons to entice Cousins to sign a deal, including Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and rookie running back Dalvin Cook.
