Kwesi Adofo-Mensah wants to bring back Kirk Cousins, but there’s a catch

The Minnesota Vikings had their year-end press conference with both head coach Kevin O’Connell and general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah. One of the questions asked was about starting quarterback Kirk Cousins and the possibility of his return.

Adofo-Mensah said he wanted Cousins to return but there was a catch in that process.

“Can you find an agreement that works for both sides?”

Last offseason, the Vikings and Cousins tried to come to an agreement before the 2023 season but they were unable to come to one mainly with the guaranteed money. Cousins’ camp wanted both 2024 and 2025 guaranteed but the Vikings were only willing to guarantee 2024.

Will that change after the season the Vikings just had? That’s doubtful considering the torn Achilles he suffered back in October against the Green Bay Packers.

The contract discussion with Cousins and his camp is going to be interesting to follow. The Vikings need a quarterback and everyone in the building likes and loves Cousins but can they make it work?
