Vikings’ Kirk Cousins already bonding with new coaching staff

When Kirk Cousins takes the field in 2022, he’ll have the confidence of his new head coach Kevin O’Connell. While Vikings former head coach Mike Zimmer was defensive-minded, O’Connell is a former quarterback who can identify with what Cousins will be experiencing on a weekly basis, something that Cousins is excited about.

“In the short time I’ve spent with Kevin (O’Connell), he wants to do things that a quarterback is comfortable in doing. I think that’ll help us as we develop our relationship moving forward,” said Cousins.

Change is something Cousins has seen over his career, and having a new coaching staff from top to bottom will take a little time to learn and adapt to.

“You want to be around great coaches. Even though it’ll take a little time to learn the new coaching staff and for them to get to know you, I look forward to sharing ideas to get this team in a positive direction,” Cousins adds.

On a side note, the NFL Draft will take place April 28th-30th. The Vikings’ first pick is No. 12 overall.
