 What They Say: 


Kirk Cousins' father on @1500ESPN:




 Contract Details: 

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported, "Cousins will receive a $3 million signing bonus. His base salary will be $22.5 million for 2018, $27.5 million for 2019 and $29.5 million for 2020. In each year, he gets a $500,000 workout bonus. That's $84 million. So it's $26 million in Year 1, $28 million in Year 2, $30 million in Year 3, a top 5 cash flow. There is no hefty signing bonus, but the fully guaranteed $84 million is far more than the previous high of $60 million."
