Free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins is reportedly deciding between signing with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets, according to Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller, who broke the news during his Stick to Football podcast.
Miller added that he believes the Jets will ultimately win the Cousins sweepstakes, citing the team’s greater cap flexibility. According to Spotrac.com, the Jets have roughly $94.8 million in cap space, while the Vikings sit at $50.9 million. That financial advantage should allow the Jets to make Cousins a more lucrative offer.
Miller’s report comes after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Saturday that the Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, Jets and Vikings were the four teams “expected to be vying” for Cousins come free agency.
