In his football career, Kirk Cousins has earned over $100.6 million. He has surpassed the average NFL contracts by earning an astounding three times the average salary. His famously frugal lifestyle ensures that much of that will go into savings, to make sure he and his family are always comfortable.

In March 2018, Cousins signed an $84 million, three-year contract that was guaranteed by the Minnesota Vikings. Cousins is the first NFL player in history to receive an NFL contract with a full guarantee.

And the Vikings weren’t the only ones interested in him. The New York Jets offered Cousins a $90 million offer that was also guaranteed. He made his choice, and today he has a net worth of approximately $50 million.

Kirk Cousins’ wife is Julie Hampton. The lovely brunette is a University of Georgia graduate. After she received her degree, Hampton went on to become an elementary school teacher. She and all the members of her family advocate for the adoption of animals, a passion she has had her whole life.

Cousins and Hampton dated for about a year and a half before becoming engaged in 2013. He proposed at the U.S. Speaker of the House’s office balcony and they were married in June 2014 in Atlanta, GA. The Cousins family remained at two for the first three years of their marriage. The couple welcomed their older son, Cooper, into the world in September 2017. In March 2019, young Cooper became a big brother to the second Cousins boy, Turner. The Minnesota Vikings quarterback is a proud father, showing his family off on social media frequently.

The two have become famous for their frugal lifestyle. During his time with the Redskins, the quarterback drove a 2000 GMC Savana. The passenger van, which he and Julie bought from Cousins’ grandfather in 2014, had over 100,000 miles. Even when he gave in and bought a Mercedes, he insisted on buying a used model. Also, when Hampton was expecting Cooper, the couple resided in the basement of Cousins’ mother and father to avoid a monthly rental expense.

Cousins played college football from 2009 to 2011 at Michigan State. In 2009, the starting quarterback for the Spartans had a great second year on the field, with twenty touchdowns thrown by Cousins.

Michigan State beat Georgia in overtime, 33 to 30.

His professional career began when he was chosen as the 2012 NFL Draft in the fourth round by the Washington Redskins. His first season there, Cousins and his team won the NFC East.

He went on to sign with the Minnesota Vikings in 2018. While the team struggled, Cousins had a solid first season. After a shaky team start, Cousins began a winning streak that boosted the entire Vikings lineup in 2009. Minnesota won four consecutive games, largely thanks to Cousins scoring four touchdown passes in two straight games.
