Cousins has a reputation for being one of the stingiest NFL players out there. The quarterback knows that money doesn’t last forever and that’s why he’s very protective of his earnings. He famously drove his grandfather’s van after he fell in love with it as a youngster (via The Washington Post).
Most football players love supercars but they don’t turn Cousins’ head. He manages his cash well because he wants to provide for his family when he finishes his football career. Meanwhile, the Vikings gave him the first fully guaranteed contract in NFL history in 2018 before he signed a one-year extension.
