Minnesota Vikings star wide receiver Justin Jefferson has 140 million reasons to be excited about playing football in 2024, but there’s considerable uncertainty about who will be throwing the ball to him.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins ​​teamed with Jefferson to form a formidable passing duo, but the signal-caller left town for Atlanta in the offseason.

Meanwhile, Jefferson signed a record-breaking $140 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid pass catcher in NFL history.

Jefferson explained his feelings about Cousins ​​leaving the Vikings for Rich Eisen and how he thinks Minnesota will rise to the occasion with a new quarterback leading the offense.

Sam Darnold is the apparent starter heading into the season, although the team selected Michigan’s JJ McCarthy in the first round with the obvious intention of making him its quarterback of the future.

Jefferson told Eisen that Darnold is doing a “great job” communicating and connecting with the offense.

If Darnold can resurrect his once-promising career, the still-young quarterback has considerable weapons around him to thrive.

Eisen asked Jefferson if he was surprised when Cousins ​​left, and he indicated he was and he wasn’t.

The receiver noted that Minnesota was faced with paying several players what they were worth, including himself, and Cousins ​​realized the best opportunities for him were elsewhere.

Jefferson expressed gratitude for what he and Cousins ​​accomplished while acknowledging that the NFL is a business and those types of decisions will be made.

He also explained that, regardless of who the quarterback is, he will always work to be in the best situation and make the offense productive.
