It's been a crazy week filled with speculation stemming from the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and most of that speculation has surrounded free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins suspected interest in joining the Minnesota Vikings.
The latest and one of the more intriguing reports tells us that the New York Jets themselves are worried that despite their willingness to back up the Brinks truck and offer Cousins the most money, his decision to land in Minnesota might already be made up.
According to our new inside source in and around the New York Jets camp Ralph Vacchiano, Cousins' interest in Minnesota is well known amongst the Jets brass.
Vacchiano's most recent post reads like this...
Despite their willingness to throw a truckload of money and a heavily front-loaded contract at Cousins in an attempt to lure the free agent franchise quarterback to New York, the Jets are worried he might already be destined to sign with the Vikings instead. According to a team source, they are aware of the league-wide speculation that Cousins is ticketed for Minnesota and they are taking that threat seriously after some informal, preliminary talks with his camp this week.
You've heard the saying, "where there's smoke, there's a fire" right? Well, right now there is a whole heck of a lot of smoke swirling around Cousins to the Vikings!
