Vikings agree to two-year contract extension with QB Kirk Cousins

As the Minnesota Vikings prepare to get their offseason underway, they have made another big move. Kirk Cousins played a huge season in 2019 and showed what he is capable of. Now, the Vikings are going to have him under center for a longer period of time.

According to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Vikings and Cousins have agreed to a two-year contract extension.

Getting Cousins locked up is a big step in the right direction for the Vikings. He is the kind of quarterback that could lead them to a Super Bowl if they build around him the right way.

Last season with the Vikings, Cousins completed 69.1 percent of his pass attempts for 3,603 yards, 26 touchdowns, and six interceptions. Those numbers show a bit of what Cousins is capable of. He put up that production without star wide receiver Adam Thielen for a big chunk of the year.

At just 31 years old, the Vikings needed to get something done. Cousins was going to receive major interest from other teams next offseason.

Minnesota can now focus on building around Cousins and working towards competing for a championship. Cousins wanted to stay with the Vikings and the two sides worked well together to get it done.

Expect another big season from Cousins in 2020. Minnesota will be a team to keep an eye on.
