Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins showed off his dance moves alongside Saints star defensive end Cam Jordan on Thursday night.
Cousins, 36, is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon he suffered a little over three months ago, but he was still able to pull off some sexy moves on the NFL awards stage.

Cousins ranked 15th in average salary with $35 million on his existing contract with the Vikings. If he gets another guaranteed contract and his 2024 cap hit is $45 million, he would be eighth in the league between Josh Allen (Bills, $47.1 million cap hit in 2024) and Derek Carr (Saints, $35.7 million).
Cousins said he would focus in free agency primarily on “structure” and not salary when his contract automatically voids in March.
“Anything that’s not dollars,” Cousins said when asked to explain his definition of structure. “Those things you work on too.”
Cousins also recently stated that he plans to be ready to participate in OTAs this offseason as long as his recovery goes as planned, whether with the Vikings or another team.
“My expectation is to be able to practice during OTAs normally,” Cousins said.

‘If I’m not allowed to participate in full team drills, I know I can basically do a full-speed practice on the field next door, which is pretty much my goal.
