New Quarterback Kirk Cousins arrived in Minneapolis, where he is expected to sign an $84 million deal with the Vikings.  

The Vikings have not announced anything yet, because technically nothing is official, but the club will ink free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins to a multi-year, fully-guaranteed contract within the next 24 hours. 

They got a little bit closer to confirmation when a local news station spotted Cousins and GM Rick Spielman emerging from a restaurant on Tuesday night.  His wife was also on hand. It’s like TMZ Minnesota you betcha

Caught up with Kirk Cousins and Vikings GM Rick Spielman as they left dinner at Capital Grille tonight — they were joined by Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph, Mike Zimmer and many others. Sounds like the deal will get done tomorrow followed by a press conference in the afternoon.

Cousins will instantly make the Vikings a contender in the NFC. The Vikings have all the pieces in place to make a run for years to come. You have to respect Cousins for betting on himself year in and year out.

He’s made 44 million the last two seasons, and when this contract is up, he may just get another crazy payday. He also looks like he could be your next door neighbor.  His nice guy face will fit perfectly in Minnesota.
