Okay, here we go Minnesota it's time to put your best foot forward.
We heard from Mark Rosen this morning on The Power Trip that Kirk Cousins' wife Julie is arriving in town this afternoon in preparations for Kirk's official visit which is now being reported to be his first visit tomorrow afternoon.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Vikings are "in the driver's seat" also saying that Cousins will visit the Vikings first tomorrow which is a big deal.
Free agent QB Kirk Cousins is visiting the #Vikings first, source said. That first visit is huge.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2018
Free agent QB Kirk Cousins will have dinner with #Vikings coaches and other essential personnel tomorrow night, then visit the shiny new facility on Thursday, sources say.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2018
According to @RapSheet, the deal is a 3-year deal with $28 million per year, which is still assumed to be a fully guaranteed deal.
The first visit is immensely important as it is showing some semblance of a pecking order in this race. If things go well tomorrow when he visits, he won't leave Minnesota to visit New York or Arizona. There's a lot to offer here with the Vikings and if the team is able to match the money close enough, as it's been widely reported, it's a done deal.
So here we go. Let Spielman and Zimmer show off the facilities and the organization and let's do our part. Tweet him up @KirkCousins8, if you work at the airport be on the look out and give him or his wife a ride from the gate to his limo, let's do our part Minnesota!!
