Why not pile on Kirk Cousins a little more.
Tom Brady is one of the most famous and accomplished athletes of all time. Everything he does, everything he says, is constantly being reported. Someone very talented and very famous gets more of the limelight than others less talented.
Someone did not pass along this memo to the Vikings and Kirk Cousins.
As Tom Brady announced he was coming out of retirement on Sunday evening, Minnesota announced it was adding another year to Cousins’ exorbitant contract.
The #Vikings are signing Pro Bowl QB Kirk Cousins to a one-year, $35 million fully guaranteed extension that puts him under contract through 2023, per sources.
Cousins gets a raise to $40 million in 2022, $55 million payable by next March and a no-trade clause.

Kirk Cousins is so grossly overpaid it’s almost a joke, but hey, this is the market for QB’s, even if they haven’t won too many playoff games.
If you’re halfway decent you can make a hell of a living playing QB in the NFL.
