What if We See Kellen Mond in 2021?

Minnesota Vikings QB1 Kirk Cousins has never missed a professional football game due to injury, ensuring the probability of seeing rookie quarterback Kellen Mond during the 2021 season is rather low. General Manager Rick Spielman is committed to Cousins in 2021 — and probably 2022, too, per his contract — so any Mond sighting this autumn would likely surface because of an unfortunate injury to Cousins.

Since joining the Vikings in 2018, Cousins has authored the NFL’s fifth-most touchdown passes (91) en route to the league’s seventh-best passer rating (102.6), notably ahead of players like Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson, and Dak Prescott.
