Vikings QB Kirk Cousins complains about Garrett Bradbury’s sweating
Veteran quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings have a new center as a result of selecting a highly-touted interior offensive lineman in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
With soon-to-be rookie center Garrett Bradbury officially on board in Minnesota, it appears as though him and Cousins are getter more and more acquainted by the day — or something like that, anyway.
“I’m going to take it back to how much he sweats again,” Cousins recently said of his new teammate, via Andrew Krammer of the Star-Tribune. “He promises it’s not a problem in games, but it remains to be seen because his shorts today were soaked. He says it’s not a problem on game days, so the moment of truth Friday night. But apparently you know they keep these domes air conditioned. You get a break on the bench with those cooling fans. I’m hoping that really helps. That’s a big thing I’m going to take away from Friday night, was how tough was it to grip the ball after he snaps it to me? If it is tough, we might be in pistol and shotgun all year, which coach [Gary] Kubiak and Kevin [Stefanski] wouldn’t like very much.”
Although this is supremely comical at this point in the offseason, Bradbury is the team’s starting center as Cousins will actually need to adjust in order to keep the football secure going forward. The last thing the Vikings offense needs is a fumbling problem due to an overly sweaty center.
