Whether they’re actually realistic or not. . .and the smart money is on “not”. . .the Kirk Cousins trade rumors are floating around out there. Since there hasn’t been a lot of other news surrounding the Minnesota Vikings to this point in the offseason, I suppose that something needs to be the topic of conversation.
One guy that you can, apparently, put firmly into Cousins’ camp is the soon-to-be (we hope) Offensive Rookie of the Year, wide receiver Justin Jefferson. Jefferson was on the Jim Rome show on Wednesday, and he said he doesn’t understand why #8 gets so much heat (among other topics).
“He definitely takes a lot of heat. He takes way more heat than he really deserves.”
Not surprising to hear from Jefferson. . .after all, anyone think that he’d be on the short list for Offensive Rookie of the Year with Sean Mannion at quarterback?
Jefferson likes his quarterback. That’s enough of an endorsement for me.
If you want to hear Jim Rome’s entire interview with Jefferson, you can listen to it on the player below.
