The final numbers aren’t in because Kirk Cousins is on an Amtrak to Minneapolis (old school grit), but Kirk Cousins is about to become the highest paid NFL quarterback and it’s going to be guaranteed…even if he plays one game, breaks his neck and never walks again. In case you’re not some sort of NFL expert, this is a big deal.
Of course the NSFWBDs are taking notice. They like the sound of $84-$86M guaranteed. It has a ring to it, especially for a quarterback with three solid seasons who will turn 30 in August.
The landmark deal will make Cousins the highest-paid quarterback in the league.
“No final decisions have been made,” Cousins’ agent, Mike McCartney, said Tuesday. “The plan is to visit Minnesota first. That’s all we can say right now.”
Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin tweeted that Cousins is a “hero” to other young players for getting a fully guaranteed contract.
Guess what other players are gonna want now.
