National Football League has a new highest paid player and he's earning serious dollars

Kirk Cousins will get a better set of receivers and a better offensive line if he does indeed sign a reported fully guaranteed contract multiple reports say he'll ink with the Minnesota Vikings. He finished 10th among quarterbacks in fantasy scoring, which is an impressive feat considering he went undrafted in fantasy drafts that year.

The deal for Cousins, 29, is set to be fully guaranteed and worth in the region of $84million to $86m, with the annual average of at least $28m making him the highest-paid player in National Football League history. Due to the fact that he began his career playing behind Robert Griffin III, Cousins did not get much of a chance with the Redskins during his first three years in the league.

The Redskins traded for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith in January, putting the wheels in motion for Cousins' departure.

At the end of the day, it will come down to a desire to win immediately with a Vikings team that made the NFC Championship Game in 2017, or money and a rebuilding franchise in the Jets. But both Schefter and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport are reporting that nothing is set in stone just yet. "The plan is to visit Minnesota first".

The Denver Broncos are expected to pay free agent quarterback Case Keenum an average of $18 million per season, according to KUSA-TV's Mike Klis.

COUSINS BIDS FAREWELL TO WASHINGTON: Kirk Cousins posted a blog on his website Monday afternoon, telling fans, "As I'm about to make one of the bigger decisions of my life, I'll be saying goodbye to my familiar life as a Redskin". The rash of injuries to quarterbacks makes the guarantee a risky deal, but at three years, Minnesota seems willing to pull the trigger on it.

In 2017 Cousins topped the 4,000-yard mark for the third straight season. He missed the entire 2016 season, and the Vikings acquired Sam Bradford to take over as the starter.

Cousins is coming off a season in which he threw for 4,093 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. However, next offseason there will be several talented, even Pro Bowl-caliber players in line for new deals.
