Kirk Cousins expected to sign with Minnesota Vikings

Wide receiver Allen Robinson will reportedly sign a three-year, $42 million deal with the Chicago Bears.

Meanwhile, Cousins also confirmed to reporters after his first dinner with the Vikings that he was also set to visit the Vikings' facilities on Thursday.

Winning and facilities. Those are two game-changers in sports these days - the first more than the second - and they are part of the reason the narrative has changed for multiple local teams in the past year. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, outgoing Vikings starter Case Keenum lined up an agreement to sign with the Denver Broncos. Last year, the Vikings waited until April 3 to sign Keenum for $2 million.

With free agency beginning this week, should the Vikings pay for Kirk Cousins' services this offseason? At this point, it would seem highly unlikely that Maccagnan would avoid picking a quarterback in the first round, but, then again, the Jets have selected a defensive player in the first round every year since taking quarterback Mark Sanchez in 2009.

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins warms up before a game against the San Francisco 49ers on October 15, 2017 in Landover, Maryland.

The Arizona Cardinals filled their quarterback vacancy with Bradford for an offer reported at $20 million for 2018.

The Vikings made a statement that they feel Cousins gives them the best chance of reaching the pinnacle in the National Football League - not Case Keenum, Sam Bradford, Teddy Bridgewater or any other quarterback available in free agency.

Cousins, 29, did not sign a long-term deal with the Redskins and twice played under the franchise-player tag in Washington.

In 2017, Brees completed an NFL-record 72 percent of his passes for 4,334 yards and 23 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He had a remarkable season a year ago, which strengthened his case to any team wanting to sign him.

Terms of the deal were not included in the release.

Vikings fans whining about how their team has forsaken Case Keenum for a more expensive quarterback, stop right now. Over his final three seasons with Michigan State, Cousins was 691-of-1,085 passing for 8,821 yards and 64 touchdowns.

The best thing? He's a work in progress who has the potential to be the Vikings' solution at quarterback for a long time.

The Minnesota Vikings made huge strides forward last season, advancing all the way to the NFC title game.

He was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2016 season and has twice been named NFC offensive player of the month.
