Kirk Cousins got straight paid on his contract extension with the Minnesota Vikings.

According to Ian Rapoport, the quarterback’s extension is for $66 million over two years. He got $61 million fully guaranteed at signing. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

That means he’s currently got three years and upwards of $96 million coming his way from the Vikings.

Below is a live look at Kirk Cousins after inking this extension with the Vikings.

Kirk Cousins hasn’t won a major game in his life, hasn’t won a Super Bowl ring, hasn’t appeared in a Super Bowl and will have made nearly $200 million in his NFL career by the time this deal is over.

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.
