Former Spartan Kirk Cousins is the NFL’s Highest Paid Player
You like that? Through the 2019 season, Minnesota Quarterback Kirk Cousins has made over 100 million dollars. No one has worked the system better than the former Spartan. Guess what? He got another BIG TIME DEAL. A 3-year 96 million dollar extension that will keep him with the Vikings through 2022.
He is currently the highest paid player in the NFL again... For now.
Hardly anyone wanted Kirk Cousins when he came out of high school. He became one of the best players in MSU football history. People continued to underestimate him in the pros. Now, he's made nearly 150 million bucks in 5 years playing for the Vikings...
