According to ProFootballTalk, the Vikings may have broken league rules by arranging a visit with quarterback Kirk Cousins before free agency officially opened. Teams are allowed to speak with unrestricted free agents and their representatives but cannot schedule meetings with the players before March 14th.
Teams aren't permitted to arrange visits during the negotiating window. The league's media operation is reporting that the Vikings have essentially violated this provision.

PFT’s Mike Florio said on KFAN radio the Vikings may be penalized by forfeiting a 2019 draft pick for violating these rules. It’s unclear if the Vikings “arranged” the visit for Cousins in violation of the league policy, but VT will keep you updated with the latest developments.
