Kirk Daniel Cousins (born August 19, 1988) is a quarterback in the National Football League for the Minnesota Vikings. He attended Michigan State University and was taken in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins as a backup to fellow rookie Robert Griffin III.
Cousins made sporadic appearances during his first three seasons before taking over as the team’s starting quarterback in 2015 after Griffin went down with an injury. He remained the team’s starter until 2017.
Cousins was named to the 2017 Pro Bowl after setting multiple team records with the Washington Redskins.
Cousins signed a fully guaranteed three-year US$84 million contract with the Vikings as a free agent in 2018 after two years of signing franchise tags and being unable to reach an agreement with the organization on a long-term deal.
With at least 1,500 throw attempts, he is third all-time in completion percentage and sixth all-time in regular-season passer rating in the NFL.
Did Kirk Cousins make the Pro Bowl?
Yes. After Kirk Cousins was picked as the Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ injury replacement, he became the seventh Vikings player to represent the team in the Pro Bowl.
Roger Goodell had a problem at the NFL’s headquarters. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have just withdrawn from the Pro Bowl. Goodell wanted to come up with a way to save his yearly cash grab for an event honoring the league’s top players.
Goodell dashed to a rooftop high above Park Avenue, where he discovered a massive spotlight. Goodell discovered a huge switch and flicked it on in the pouring rain. The number 98.6 was flashed across the sky. It appeared to be a coincidence to the typical person.
Meanwhile, Kirk Cousins was holed up in his basement in Eagan. Cousins noticed the number outside of a chamber he refers to as “The Kirk Cave.” His career passer rating was visible in the skies above him.
