Yea I know you're a strong advocate for Cousins PHP and youre right, he doesn't come with injury concerns but it only takes one unfortunate situation for that to go out the window. As for as Performance, going off of the stats you've posted and a little research myself, he's been way more efficient than our current QBs(Though I believe Bradford could've surpass him in 17' season) but Im skeptical because with all his great stat's, Washington still had mediocre records.

But hey if we get him I'm I wont be mad just skeptical. And even if he plays bad, I promise I wont be one of those I told you so guys. I completely understand that the Vikings front office ultimate goal is to win and any QB decision they make will be a tough one.

Well you definitely make some valid points. But again, don’t let the records fool you. Without Kirk cousins, the Redksins are a very bad team. Like 4 win max team. Look at the Texans. Outside of those few games with Watson they had very bad QB play on a fairly talented team and win 4 games. Houston has a better overall team than Washington does. The records mean nothing to me to be honest. Especially when you’re surrounded by a terrible defense, below average WRs and RBs and a bad offensive line like cousins had this year

Sam Bradford - QB - Free Agent
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Bills are a "team to watch" for free agent Sam Bradford.

Pelissero adds the Vikings have "stayed in touch" with the impending free agent, but Bradford "may have options, provided he can pass a physical." How Bradford's troublesome knee, which coach Mike Zimmer described as "degenerative," fares in medical testing will likely decide how strong his market actually is. If the Bills are comfortable with his health, this marriage makes a lot of sense.

Vikings put second-round tender on Nick Easton

"That will pay him $2.914 million for the year, and effectively take him off what has become a lucrative guard market"

Vikings signed Kirk Cousins, formerly of the Redskins, to a three-year contract.

The deal is believed to be for around $86 million, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reports it will be fully-guaranteed, a landmark for an NFL free agent. The contract is expected to be finalized after Cousins visits the Vikings' facility on Thursday. It always made sense for Cousins to land in Minnesota, an organization with a strong roster and good coaching which gives him a chance to win right away. This is also an ideal spot for Cousins from a fantasy perspective. With Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, and Kyle Rudolph to target and Dalvin Cook in the backfield, Cousins looks like a locked-in QB1.

The Star Tribune's Ben Goessling reports the Vikings are interested in Bears restricted free agent CB Bryce Callahan.

Chicago only placed an original-round tender on Callahan, meaning they will not be owed any compensation if they decline to match an offer sheet. It was an odd decision for a player who was always likely to draw interest -- it would have only cost the Bears $1 million more to give him a second-round tender. Chicago might end up having to match an offer sheet to retain Callahan.
Like this idea. Good depth right here. Wasting no time

Sigh.

Godspeed, Teddy. You have your work cut out for you.
