EAGAN, Minn. (WCCO) — He is the highest-paid athlete per year in the history of Minnesota sports, and his goal is to prove he’s worth it.

Tuesday night on WCCO 4 News at 10, Mike Max sat down with Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. He was the high-priced hired gun brought in as the missing piece this off-season, coming in and signing a fully-guaranteed three-year, $84 million contract.

He is also just a few years married, the father of an 8-month-old son and his wife was an elementary school teacher.

“My wife, elementary education was her major. She taught for a year and that was her passion. She naturally is a nurturer and very caring, and she’s organized,” Cousins said. “When the Lord looked down and picked a partner for me, he picked the right one. I feel so fortunate to be married to Julie. Right now she’s getting our house together that we just purchased and is getting that all lined up.”
