Vikings sign DT Sheldon Richardson to 1-year deal

Seahawks defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson visiting Vikings

She joined ESPN in 2017.

With the announcement of his signing coming 24 hours later, the pitch clearly worked, and Cousins now becomes the starter for a Vikings team that reached the NFC Championship Game last season. He's a terrific pass rusher who addresses the team's biggest need, especially after New England couldn't lay a finger on Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles in the Super Bowl.

As the first wave of free agency wraps up, all of those boxes have been checked.

The idea began to percolate about 2½ years ago, in discussions between Kirk Cousins and agent Mike McCartney about his status with the Washington Redskins and his future in the NFL.

As pivotal as it was for the Vikings to land the top free agent at arguably the most important position in all of sports, it was equally crucial to fill the missing piece on the league's No. 1 defense.

It looks like they did the same for Cooper's outfits, or the Vikings were able to get baby gear to them very quickly. "The whole defensive line works". At the combine, Zimmer went over the possibilities of where these struggles started.

Uber also experimented with a subscription-based ride-hailing plan in 2016, but it remains unclear whether it proved fruitful. For starters, they've released policy papers predicting the total end of personal vehicle ownership by 2025.

Veteran defensive tackle Tom Johnson will meet with Seattle on Monday, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

But with Richardson reported wanting upwards of $11 million and the Seahawks apparently not wanting to go that high, the odds seemed to be increasing on Friday that he may get away. Based exclusively on ability and past production, Cousins is comfortably in the top half of National Football League starting quarterbacks, but there are probably 8-10 better players at the position. In 2014, Richardson notched eight sacks and a Pro Bowl berth before totaling five sacks the following year.

"I would be here a long time if I were to read off the grocery list of reasons why this is the right fit", Cousins said Thursday at Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center. However, his woes did not stop there as Richardson recorded 44 tackles and just one sack in the 2017 campaign. "He always has played with a chip on his shoulder". A defensive line of Danielle Hunter, Linval Joseph, Everson Griffen and Richardson is filthy. "Have you seen the building?" "But what my wife and I are thrilled about is the organization we are walking into".

Richardson, the 13th overall pick out of Missouri in 2013 by the Jets, had one sack and 27 tackles last season for Seattle. "I feel like this is it with them acquiring Kirk, talking to him, getting him to pluck his brain a little bit". "That's it no more than that, but we got our whole schedule".

Richardson is a huge addition, especially at that cost.
