1. Figure out the Kirk Cousin question

For about 95% of NFL teams, QB questions dominate their offseason. That's no different in Minnesota, where Cousins heads into this season as an unrestricted free agent and will look to add to his Business of Football Hall of Fame resume. It won't be so simple this time around: most NFL pundits have Cousins projected as the 2nd-best free agent in this year's class, and there are more than a few teams out there who feel like they're only a reliable veteran QB away from making a postseason run. If Cousins bolts for Las Vegas, Denver, or some still-unknown destination (San Francisco? Tampa?), than Minnesota's offseason looks a whole lot different all of a sudden. This Vikings core goes as Kirk Cousins goes, for better or for worse, so that's gotta be Priority #1.
