During an interview with us here at The Viking Age, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jordan Addison expressed his desire for the team to re-sign Kirk Cousins this year.
During the 2023 campaign, Jordan Addison became just the third player in the history of the Minnesota Vikings to haul in at least 10 touchdowns as a rookie, joining Randy Moss and Sammy White.
Seven of those passes that wound up with Addison in the end zone were thrown by Kirk Cousins, as the veteran Vikings quarterback quickly developed a trust with the young wide receiver during the first few weeks of the season.
This year, Cousins is currently scheduled to become a free agent in March, and there's a chance that he won't be back in Minnesota for the 2024 campaign. If you ask Addison though, he would like to see the Pro Bowl signal-caller return for at least one more season in purple and gold.
Jordan Addison wants to the Minnesota Vikings to re-sign Kirk Cousins in 2024
On Wednesday, Addison took some time to talk with us here at The Viking Age on behalf of Sleep Number, and when asked about Cousins, the young pass-catcher had the following to say.
"I just feel like he’s underrated. He’s always got the numbers. He’s a very accurate quarterback. He does great under pressure.
We need Kirk back.”
It seems pretty clear what Addison would like the Vikings to do this offseason when it comes to Cousins.
Addison isn't the only Minnesota receiver to recently express his desire for the veteran passer to return to the team, as All-Pro Vikings pass-catcher Justin Jefferson also told "The Rich Eisen Show" on Wednesday that he would like Cousins "to stay" in Minnesota for the 2024 season.
The Vikings' top two wide receivers have made their desires pretty clear. Will their opinions play a factor in what Minnesota ultimately decides to do with Cousins this offseason?
Time will tell, and we'll all just have to wait and see.
