Cousins just led the Vikings to a huge win over the Saints and Fowler says he’s well aware of the fact that a playoff win provides some “ammunition” for contract negotiations.
According to Fowler, Cousins is positioning himself well for another “massive” extension.
Cousins, 31, is a former fourth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2012. He played out the final year of his rookie contract before being franchised in back-to-back seasons by Washington.
Cousins later departed in free agency for a three-year, $84 million contract with the Vikings. He’s currently in the second year of his contract and stands to make a base salary of $29.5 million for the 2020 season.
In 2019, Cousins appeared in 15 games for the Vikings and completed 69.1 percent of his passes for 3,603 yards, 26 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 5 quarterback out of 38 qualifying players.
