With an excellent defense and talented skill position players already in place, Cousins' addition to the Vikings could be the move that finally gets them over the top. Smith and the team have agreed on a four-year deal that will pay him $94 million, $71 million of that guaranteed.
The Redskins traded with the Kansas City Chiefs to acquire Alex Smith on January 30, agreeing to a four-year extension with the veteran.

Obviously a quarterback isn't exclusively responsible for wins and losses, but the majority of the time, good QB's can put their teams in a position to win, and Smith seems to do that well. They rank just 19th in the National Football League in available cap space this offseason. Once quarterback Kirk Cousins signs with a team, that picture will be a little clearer and we may have some insight on which team may land Cousins.
