The Minnesota Vikings are sticking with quarterback Kirk Cousins, agreeing on a two-year contact extension, according to his agent.
Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
Cousins was heading into the final year of the three-year, fully guaranteed $84 million contract he received from the Vikings in March 2018.
After signing that deal, Cousins went under the microscope, with criticism of his big-game play cropping up. But Cousins silenced some of the critics last season. In the regular season, he had 26 touchdown passes and only six interceptions. He had a career-high 107.4 passer rating.
He then led the Vikings to an upset of the Saints in the wild-card round before Minnesota fell to San Francisco in the divisional round.
