Kirk Cousins on Why He & His Wife Still Live in His Parents’ Basement During Offseason

NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins just became the highest paid player since his $84 million dollar contract if fully guaranteed. Even though he is a millionaire, old habits remain.

According to CNBC, Cousins said in a GQ  interview that he lives in his parents’ basement during the offseason and will continue. They also stay in his wife’s parents’ home as well.

“It works well. We don’t pay rent.

For a good portion of the off-season, the eminently practical Cousins holes up beneath the floorboards of his teenage home in Holland, Michigan. … He shares the space with his wife, Julie”

He also bought his grandmother’s van for $5,000. Nothing wrong with budgeting.
