QB Kirk Cousins Agrees To 2-Year Extension With Vikings In $93 Million Deal

Kirk Cousins agreed to a two-year extension to remain with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday. The deal is worth $66 million.

Prior to the contract extension, Cousins was coming into the last year of a three-year deal worth $84 million that he signed with Minnesota in 2018. When combining next year’s salary with the current deal, Cousins is slated to earn $96 million with $61 million guaranteed by signing, league sources told ESPN. He will receive $35 million guaranteed for injury, however, the deal changes to fully guaranteed as the 2021 season begins. The extension helps Minnesota clear $10 million worth of cap space that can be applied to NFL free agency which officially begins on March 18.

Cousins had been constantly criticized for not performing well in big games, but last season he compiled stats consisting of 26 touchdowns, 3603 passing yards and a career-high 107.4 passer rating with just six interceptions.  In the NFC Wild Card game, Cousins helped the Vikings shock the heavily favored Saints before falling to the 49ers in the divisional round.
