See Which Homes Kirk Cousins Can Score With His Salary in Minnesota
Whether you like him or not, one thing we can all accept as a fact is that Kirk Cousins has a massive contract with the Minnesota Vikings. In March, the Vikings and Cousins agreed on a two-year contract extension. This extension is worth $66 million, making his total contract a whopping $96 million. Before this contract extension was confirmed, Cousins had just one season remaining on his three-year, $84 million contract that he signed with Minnesota before the 2018 season.
To really put his new contract into perspective, let’s look at some of the most expensive properties in Minnesota.
