‘Built to last’: In 10th year, Cousins relishes durability


EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Kirk Cousins found himself facing a likely end date for his time with the Minnesota Vikings when his assumed replacement Kellen Mond was drafted this spring. Being finished playing football will probably be a different story. In some ways Cousins is just getting going, even though he’s entering his 10th season in the NFL. Cousins says he has no doubt about his ability to physically perform for years to come because of the way he takes care of his body and the way the league rules are designed to protect quarterbacks. He turns 33 next month.
