This is probably a smart move for the Vikings. When you find a franchise quarterback in the NFL, you do what you can to keep him.

The quarterback market in the NFL is laughably bad. It’s borderline atrocious. That means options are incredibly limited.

While Cousins isn’t exactly a superstar and he’s not one of the best quarterbacks in the league, he’s better than most of them.

He’s dependable, he can make most of the throws you’ll ever need to make and he doesn’t lose you games. In the NFL, that’s about as good as it’s going to get unless you have the likes of Russell Wilson playing quarterback.

It’ll be interesting to see what kind of money he’s getting in this deal, but I’m sure it’s worth it for the Vikings.
