Vikings sign Cousins to record contract

Vikings sign Cousins to record contract

In 62 games with Washington, including 57 starts, Cousins threw for 16,206 yards and 99 touchdowns with a 65.5 completion percentage and a 93.7 passer rating. It's a hard position. "Handsome stadium, I see myself making a lot of plays in there". Earlier this week, the Vikings gave quarterback Kirk Cousins a three-year, $84 million contract that is fully guaranteed. Cousins picked the Vikings for more than just the desirability of their offer.

Alongside the Vikings, the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos were widely regarded as the only franchises that could have had a shot at landing Cousins.

The Vikings signed defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson to a one-year, $8 million deal with an additional $3 million in incentives. The Bills traded Taylor to Cleveland, which traded DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers, where he'll back up Aaron Rodgers.AJ McCarron finally gets his chance to prove himself after spending four seasons in Andy Dalton's shadow.

Richardson, 27, is getting "about" $11 million from the Vikings, according to Yahoo! ". You can either let it affect you in how you go about your work and let that define you".

Jones pleased as Wales finish with a win
Asked if it was now extra motivation for Joe Schmidt's Ireland , Jones said: "I think the grand slam is enough motivation". Ireland , seeking their third grand slam following clean sweeps in 1948 and 2009, top the standings on 19 points.

Still, he turned 31 in January and any team signing him to any kind of lengthy deal will have to debate if he will be worth the investment as he gets further into his 30s.

"I got back there a lot, disrupted as coach Zimmer said". "I think if you talk to 31 other teams, their goal and objective is to win a Super Bowl, or why are you in this business?"

Two of the last three MVPs reside in the NFC South in Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons, who have the seemingly ageless Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints for company.

Most recently, Tony McDaniel returned to the Seahawks in 2016 at 32 years of age and started 10 games for the team, providing valuable snaps while recording 43 tackles. But, the National Football League, the sport with the highest risk of injury, doesn't guarantee contracts.

Moscow has denied any involvement in the attempted murder of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter. The BBC on Saturday said the police had made contact with Russians living in Britain to discuss their safety.

They may have to start out as a backup such as Patrick Mahomes II past year in Kansas City or Rodgers did in Green Bay when Brett Favre was still going strong. "Nothing more, nothing less, no better than the next man". "Honestly, just not finishing for me, in my book, with my standards, that's how I feel about it". "I'm excited to see who's going to get to the ball next year with the athletes we have up front".

Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said Head Coach Mike Zimmer was looking for a guy "that has very quick [muscle] twitch off the snap, that can play with heavy hands, but also can penetrate".

I could go on about the what-ifs, the past tribulations of the franchise and all the negative history that surrounds the team, but not this time. Not every situation is like that. They utilized Cousins as part of their recruiting pitch for Richardson. "That's what I did and it worked out well for me".
