Welcome to the Kirk Cousins era, Skol Nation! It’s an era that will last a minimum of three years. If you’re still hesitant that this whole thing might not happen, here is your icing on the cake:

The three-year ($86 million) deal is reported to be fully-guaranteed. As you can tell by Seattle WR, Doug Baldwin’s reaction, that part is a game-changer:

While the players are sure to appreciate the Vikings approach on Cousins’ soon to be official contract, the same isn’t true for opposing NFL owners.
