Quarterback Cousins: Hope to retire as Vikings

In March, the Vikings signed quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​to a one-year, $35 million fully guaranteed contract that will see him play until the end of the 2023 season. The contract includes a no-trade clause, which also frees up $14 million in cap space for the Vikings in 2022.

Cousins ​​said in a recent interview: “In short, (the reason why I signed) is that I want to be a member of the Vikings. I want to help the team free up salary space so that they can form a stronger lineup. The key It’s mutual benefit, and I think that’s a way to win, and hopefully that will help us win this fall.”

“My mentality has always been that I want to be a Viking. I want to retire as a Viking, and I will fight for it. I know this right is earned by myself.”

The Vikings are 33-29-1 in Cousins’ four-year start. Under new coach Kevin O’Connell’s offense, Cousins ​​has the opportunity to improve his performance and start working on his next contract.
