Vikings QB Cousins Talks Pass Protection, Plans Next Few Weeks Leading into Training Camp

June 13, 2018 04:17 PM

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins held court with reporters after Wednesday's mini-camp practice. He was asked about getting on the same page as his offensive linemen, what will keep him busy the next 5 1/2 weeks before training camp, whether he plans on getting together again away from the facility with his receivers, etc.

On how he'll spend his summer break: "You have to pace yourself a little bit. Because I feel a little behind the eight ball and am learning the offense, I do need to be in it every day, but there also needs to be a healthy balance of getting away, catching your breath, and getting a change of scenery, knowing that when we come back at the end of July we still have six more weeks before week one. I'm trying to find that balance, getting better at it each year, but to answer your question, I'll definitely get away, relax, and also just stay in it every day for a few minutes so I don't lose what I've gained."

The Vikings have one more mini-camp practice on Thursday before training camp begins in late July.
