NFLGARAGE QUARTERBACK KURT COUSINS
Projected Week 1 starter: Kirk Cousins
Backups: Trevor Siemian, Kyle Sloter, Peter Pujals
2018 outlook: The Vikings are all-in on Kirk
Cousins. After an impressive 2017 campaign led by Case Keenum, Minnesota
looked to upgrade at quarterback and keep the rest of the team
relatively intact. Cousins has put up impressive numbers for years with
Washington, but now he'll have to translate that to a franchise that
expects to be in the mix atop the NFC.
In case of emergency: Trevor Siemian's starts for
the Broncos last year fell far short of expectation, but if he could
keep the ball secure and let the rest of the Vikings roster take care of
the winning part of the game, the Vikings could still be contenders.
Long term plans: After signing Cousins to such a
monster deal, it's unlikely the Vikings look elsewhere for quarterback
help any time soon.
