Jake Browning says he "learned a lot" from Vikings QB Kirk Cousins

Back in 2019, the Vikings decided to sign former University of Washington quarterback Jake Browning as an undrafted free agent.

Browning never appeared in a regular-season game during his two-year tenure with Minnesota, but he did spend two seasons on the team's practice squad.

After missing out on the Vikings' final roster again in 2021, the Bengals wound up signing him to their practice squad. Browning was able to win Cincinnati's No. 2 quarterback job earlier this year, and with Joe Burrow done for the season, it will be the former Minnesota signal-caller starting against his old team on Saturday.

Recently, Browning reflected on his time with the Vikings, including the opportunity he had to work with Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins.

"Being around Kirk was great for me. He’s a pro’s pro, I learned a lot from him. He was a very open book with me coming in as an undrafted guy and formed a really good relationship with him."

Will Browning use some of what he learned from Cousins on Saturday when he attempts to lead the Bengals to a win over Minnesota?
