Former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins (2007-2011) spoke out about how he's going to deal with the coronavirus pandemic once the NFL season starts in less than two weeks.

The former Spartan, now with the Minnesota Vikings, told the NFL Network's Kyle Brandt during Brandt's weekly podcast "10 Questions with Kyle Brandt" that:

"I want to respect what other people’s concerns are. For me personally, just talking (if) no one else can get the virus, what is your concern if you could get it, I would say I’m gonna go about my daily life. If I get it, I’m gonna ride it out. I’m gonna let nature do its course. Survival-of-the-fittest kind of approach. And just say, if it knocks me out, it knocks me out. I’m going to be OK. You know, even if I die. If I die, I die. I kind of have peace about that. So that's really where I fall on it. So my opinion about wearing a mask is really about being respectful to other people. It really has nothing to do with my own personal thoughts."

Cousins (pictured above) signed a two-year contract extension worth in excess of $60 million back in March.  He has been with the Vikings since 2018 after spending the first six seasons of his career with Washington.
