Quarterback, Minnesota Vikings
Kirk Daniel Cousins (born August 19, 1988) is an American football quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Michigan State and was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft as a backup to fellow rookie Robert Griffin III. Cousins occasionally appeared in games during his first three seasons before replacing Griffin following an injury in 2015, where he remained the team’s starter until 2017. With the Redskins, Cousins set numerous franchise records and was named to the 2017 Pro Bowl.
After two years of signing franchise tags and being unable to agree with the team on a long-term deal, Cousins signed a fully guaranteed three-year US$84 million contract with the Vikings as a free agent in 2018. He ranks sixth all-time in completion percentage with at least 1,500 pass attempts, and is eighth in the NFL’s all-time regular season career passer rating.Source
