While the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and David Johnson are trying to recruit Kirk Cousins to Arizona, everyone on the planet seems to agree that Cousins will end up signing with the Vikings sometime next week. 

According to NFL Insider Adam Caplan, who was on Sirius XM NFL Radio on Saturday, Cousins is going to sign with the Vikings. 

"From people I trust, Kirk Cousins will go to the least $27 million per season," Caplan said via Sirius XM NFL host Zig Fracessi.

Caplan isn't the first to be so bold. Ex-Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has said the Vikings will be offering Cousins a three-year deal worth $31 million per season. 

Even Las Vegas is all in on Cousins landing in Minnesota, giving the Vikings 1/3 odds as the favorite to sign him. 

Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press that he sees Cousins picking Minnesota because it's his best chance to win. 

The Vikings can officially offer a contract to Cousins on Monday, and the signing period opens on Wednesday afternoon.
