Earlier this week we talked about it, the early steam coming out of Indianapolis and the NFL Scouting Combine has QB Kirk Cousins tied with the Vikings left and right.
Well, everybody has checked in at the Combine and the first round of conversations at the hotel bar are in the bag and it's looking even more like the Vikings are the front runners for the Kirk Cousins auction.
According to Ralph Vacchiano, who covers the New York Jets of all teams, the Minnesota Vikings should be considered the favorites to land top free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins when free agency officially opens on March 14th.
In his article in fact, Vacchiano said...
"There is rampant speculation around the league that Cousins is destined for Minnesota, where he'd replace journeyman Case Keenum on a team that just reached the NFC championship game. The Jets can compete with any team in the chase financially. But it will be hard for them to beat the Vikings - or even the Broncos - if Cousins is looking for a place where he can immediately win."
This continues to be the vibe that is shooting out of Indianapolis in all directions. And this one in particular is coming from a guy who closely covers the team that's rumored to be offering a fully guaranteed $30 million a year contract!
Free agency could be fun this year!
