Statements from Ownership on Kirk Cousins & Danielle Hunter


"For the past six years, Kirk and Julie Cousins built a legacy as members of the Minnesota Vikings and the Twin Cities community. From the moment Kirk signed with the Vikings in 2018, it became clear no one would be more dedicated to perfecting his craft. He is the ultimate competitor who sets a high standard, works tirelessly to improve and is meticulous with his process. As a team captain, he was profuse in his praise for teammates and coaches whenever he had the chance. Off the field, Kirk and Julie displayed consistent integrity and class as they prioritized giving back monetarily and through the use of their platform. We are grateful to the Cousins family and look forward to watching them continue to have professional and personal success."

"Danielle had one of the most accomplished careers in the history of the Minnesota Vikings. His physical presence and aggressive style of play helped our defense rank near the top of the NFL for several years. His lead-by-example, humble approach made it easy for teammates to select him as a captain, for fans to cheer for him and for the community to embrace him as a Minnesotan. We sincerely wish Danielle and his entire family the best moving forward."
