    Kansas City just upgraded with Watkins

    Watkins
    Hill
    Hunt
    Kelce

    Going to be very difficult to match up against them

    And Raiders don't have any corners to rely on. And safeties are questionable.
    Brutal

    Smith would shred us. We don't know about Mahomes. That's all I got....

    Cousins is getting a fully guaranteed deal.

    No matter what he’s not living up to that deal.

    Insane.

    He’s literally rewriting NFL contracts with this deal.

    Changing how a lot of deals get done from here on out me thinks

    That's a rumor.

    Bet it's not going to be fully guaranteed. Just think what kind of precedent that would set. :(

    You have a link @007?

    You mean like when Al gave Nnamdi a 3 year / $45M fully guaranteed deal? That didn't set any precedent.

    Washington decided Kirk Cousins wasn't worth keeping at franchise quarterback money. The Minnesota Vikings reportedly decided he is.
    According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Vikings will sign Cousins to a three-year, fully guaranteed contract Thursday. Earlier, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Minnesota's offer was worth $28 million per season

    By that point Al Davis was not taken seriously by agents or other GMs.

    Matt Ryan is up next? You don’t think he’s paying attention...

    How much would Bridgewater cost to bring in as a backup? Is he done? For a former high pick that lost his job to injury, I'm not hearing his name at all. I know it was a gruesome injury but as a 3rd QB with upside and trade potential I would think we would have to kick his tires.

    I don't think he had a fully guaranteed contract. I could be wrong but...

    Only a three year deal though. The Raiders basically committed that long to Derek.

    He’s gonna get 15 mil to be a “Bridge” QB with the Jets IMO.

    And why would Khalil take anything less than fully guaranteed now?

    We would be forced to tag him twice then someone is gonna offer it anyways in 3 seasons at his current playing level.

    Between draft picks, trades and free agency the Vikes sure have invested a shitload into the QB position over the years without much return... I dunno, Cousins isn't elite, but it seems he's banked more loot than any QB in the league over the past few years

    Like Denver, never have felt they were in on him from being here locally. Just giving it lip service.
