Below is a live look at Kirk Cousins after inking this extension with the Vikings.
His agent deserves a massive pat on the back after the work he’s done on contracts for Kirk Cousins. That’s just a fact.
He’s made Cousins a very wealthy man.
Still, all things considered, not a bad deal for the Vikings. They’re paying Cousins more than $30 million, but it’s not for many years.
If things go south, they can get out of this deal without too much damage. All the way around, it seems like a win for everybody involved.
