Minnesota's signing of Cousins marks the first major free agent quarterback signing the franchise has made since Brett Favre in 2009.
Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a contract with the Minnesota Vikings when free agency officially begins on Wednesday, and the structure of the deal should excite his fellow players. The 29-year-old quarterback boasts a career 65.5 completion percentage with 99 touchdowns. Cousins only got the team to the postseason once in three years as the starter, and the team lost the one playoff game they had. He also completed 67 percent of his passing attempts in addition to recording a passer rating of 97.2.
Cousins has thrown for at least 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of the last three seasons.
One of those desperate teams in is the New York Jets, who have been linked to the quarterback soon after the Redskins traded for Alex Smith, making Cousins expendable after being franchise tagged for the past two seasons.
Cousins, a product of Holland, Michigan, was drafted in the fourth round by the Washington Redskins in 2012.

Cousins appears to be moving to a Minnesota team that has a clear direction of where they want to be. "After calling Washington home for the past six years, the team has chose to move on to another option and, in turn my family and I will be moving on as well". Could he have possibly been more productive in Minnesota than he was in Washington?
