Kirk Cousins receives full support from his Vikings GM despite subpar season

Kirk Cousins Vikings

Kirk Cousins has not had the best of starts for the Minnesota Vikings this season. He’s currently in possession of the most interceptions in the league with 10, which has been one of the primary reasons behind Minnesota’s 1-5 start to the season. Despite his sub-par showing, however, Cousins continues to get the full backing of team general manager Rick Spielman.

According to Spielman, he remains confident in his embattled QB:

“You just kind of have to go back and look at the big picture,” Spielman said, via Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “But I don’t think anyone has lost any faith in Kirk Cousins. I expect him to come back after the bye week and play well for us.”

Cousins put pen to paper on a two-year deal in the offseason worth a whopping $66 million. Safe to say that at this point, the 32-year-old has yet to live up to his hefty price tag. Nonetheless, he can rest easy that the front office still has his back — for the time being at least.

In Minnesota’s last contest, Cousins completed 24-of-36 passes for a 343-yard gain, but also had three interceptions, as the Vikings fell to the Atlanta Falcons, 40-23, in Week 6.

The Vikings are coming off a bye week, and are now set to face off against the Green Bay Packers, and for his sake, we’re hoping the brief mid-season break serves as a turning point for Cousins moving forward.
