Minnesota Vikings

It might be time for Kirk Cousins to quit Twitter

In today’s world, like the general public, pro athletes can offer a window into their lives via social media.

Instagram, Twitter and the like are a double-edged sword for public figures though, as responses can come unabated and turn harsh quickly.

After the Minnesota Vikings went 13-3 and reached the NFC Championship Game in 2017, Cousins was signed a three-year, $84 million contract as expectations remained high.

But that faded into a 8-7-1 season, as the Vikings missed the playoffs and Cousins fell short in every important game against a good team.

Cousins’ salary is an easy crutch for criticism, but it will remain the chief narrative for disappointed fans over the next two seasons if he and the team continues to fall short.

In the end 71 percent of vote called for Cousins to give away a signed jersey and it’s assumed a winner will be randomly picked at some point soon.
