ESPN’s Dan Graziano is wondering: Is 2019 a ‘make-or-break’ year for Kirk Cousins in Minnesota?” Of course it’s not. Obviously, Cousins could do himself harm in the minds of Vikings fans if he doesn’t have a good year. But a bad year cannot “break” Cousins or his Vikings career, because no matter what happens the team will owe him $29.5 million in guaranteed salary in 2020. Try moving that deal to another team, especially after a bad year. There are some NFL players for whom this coming season really is a make-or-break one – players whose time has come to cash in on their talent and opportunity or look for work elsewhere in the 2020 offseason. Check out the list of the 10 players whose jobs will be on the line this season. Read here.
