The Minnesota Vikings are 1-5 and Kirk Cousins has thrown 10 interceptions on the season.
After last Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Cousins said that he “won’t finish the season” if he keeps throwing interceptions at this rate.
Despite the quarterback’s self assessment, Rick Spielman says no one within the organization has lost confidence in Cousins.
“You just kind of have to go back and look at the big picture,” Spielman said. “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’ entire $21 million salary for next season is guaranteed and his 2022 salary will become guaranteed if he’s on the roster three days into the 2021 league year.
