MN Vikings' GM Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer were terminated this morning. It's pretty clear that the firings come as a result of the signing of Kirk Cousins three years ago for a multimillion dollar contract far greater than Cousins' prior record would merit. Cousins' lifetime winning record is slightly under .500, but his record against teams with a winning record, at the time of his initial signing was 18%, now, even lower. His percentage of the total team salary cap is 20.1%, which seriously limited the team's ability to sign other players.
