Cousins' agent, Mike McCartney, spoke at length with Peter King of The MMQB about the days and hours leading up to Cousins signing with the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings on Monday announced they have acquired quarterback Trevor Siemian from the Denver Broncos.

Cousins wore green and white and played for Michigan State for four years (plus a redshirt season) and became, at the time, the winningest quarterback in program history.

Cousins eventually signed a fully-guaranteed deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

One of the Broncos' most unlikely success stories is moving on.

Cousins will not be unfamiliar to the Eagles, with the six starts he made against them over the last three seasons for the division-rival Redskins as a reference.

The Broncos also sent a seventh-round pick (No. 225) in next month's draft to Minnesota and obtained a fifth-round selection in the 2019 draft from the Vikings.

NY wasn't placed higher on the list than Minnesota as Cousins might have had to be more of a team-carrier there since they don't have as strong of a supporting cast, and there wouldn't have been the kind of patience there'd be in Minnesota if he'd struggled on the field.

"I think leadership is such a big part of having success in this league", Kirk Cousins said on PFT Live.
