Vikings Give Former Spartan Cousins A 2 Year Extension
The Minnesota Vikings have given veteran QB Kirk Cousins a two-year contract extension that will take him through the 2022 season, according to media reports.
Terms of the current deal were not disclosed, but Cousins was entering the final year of a fully guaranteed $84 million deal that he signed before the 2018 season.
Cousins (pictured above) led the Vikings to a playoff berth this past season, where they defeated the New Orleans Saints in overtime in the NFC Wild Card round.
The former Michigan Stater threw for 3,603 yards and 26 touchdowns with only 6 interceptions in 2019. He would have become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season.
