    Vikings offer to Cousins/Bell wants

    I am watching the NFL network, and they are reporting that the Vikings offered Cousins 3 yr 28 Million.

    Now compare that to how much Bell wants? I am all for resigning Bell, but in comparison to what the expected "highest paid QB" is offered, it sounds crazy to pay the 15 Million that Bell wants...or am I comparing apples and oranges .

    You need a QB in the league. You can get by with mediocre RBs but you can't succeed without a QB. Dense as he is, I'd hope that even Bell understands the QB premium.

    $28M/year for Cousins is quite a bit higher than what Bell wants. It's nearly double. I'm not sure that comparison is really making the point. But I agree that we shouldn't be paying Bell $15M/year. Much bigger needs on defense.

    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 deal 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.

    The point is that Cousins’ deal is in line with other highly paid QBs. Bell wants something far out of line with other highly paid RBs...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+# up and wear it.

    Because Bell has taken it upon himself to reset the runningback market for the entire league. Bell said it himself. So if your Steeler management, do you want to do that to the league?

    Cousins to get 3 years, $86 million, fully guaranteed? Maybe that's in line with what Garappalo got, but it seems out of whack with even the great franchise QBs -- Brees just got 2 year from the Saints, at about $25 million per ... Cousins is gonna make considerably more.

    Vikings still ain't winning the Super Bowl! Have you ever seen him play in a game that "mattered?" He won't be much better (if any) than Keenum! Mark my words...

    Delete this thread! I heard it wrong and that is why I could not comprehend it.

    I heard, "3 yrs for 28 million", and not " 28 Million per year for 3 years"

    In that light WOW.. he got paid!
