Kirk Cousins is expected to sign a contract with Minnesota Vikings this morning and then be introduced at a press conference later today, Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman told reporters after dining with Cousins at The Capital Grille in Minneapolis Wednesday night. 

"I think it's pretty hard not to get done right now," said Spielman. "We'll handle the business first thing in the morning while he's getting his physical and going on some tours." 

Sources tell GoMN that the press conference should happen around 3 p.m., although the timing could change slightly.
