It looks like Kirk Cousins will stay at the Minnesota Vikings for the 2022 season.
The Minnesota Vikings made significant changes this season, as they hired Kwesi Adofo-Mensah as general manager and Kevin O’Connell as head coach. One topic that has been brought up is the status of Kirk Cousins, who has received nothing but praise. That includes new offensive coordinator Wes Phillips.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo mentioned that there is a “really long-term possibility for Kirk Cousins in Minnesota.” Garafolo also said that he has been told “those who have told candidates in general manager interviews that they still think they can win with Cousins.”

Kirk Cousins could be a long-term option for the Vikings
This may not be what Vikings fans want to hear, but should be prepared in case that is the direction the organization ultimately decides.
Cousins is entering the final season of a two-year, $66 million contract, where he brings in a $45 million cap. It is not yet known whether the team will award him a new contract before or after the 2022 season.
The four defenders have a working relationship with the coaching staff. O’Connell was his quarterback coach in 2017 with the Washington Command, while Phillips was the closed coach from 2014 until Cousins’ departure in 2017. Phillips held that role. until 2018.
Last season, Cousins scored 4,221 passes, 33 touchdowns and 7 interceptions while completing 66.3% of his passes. Cousins played all but one, Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers, which he missed after testing positive for COVID-19. Team Viking finished the season with an 8-9 record, which resulted in missing out on the playoffs.
Viking fans, you may need to give it a go for Cousins as the team’s starting midfielder in 2022 and potentially beyond.
