Kirk Cousins' Busy Offseason Continues

Over one million football fanatics tuned in to watch the Big Game on Sunday—the Puppy Bowl, of course.

Perhaps the biggest supporter, is none other than Redskins signal caller Kirk Cousins, who served as the Puppy Bowl ambassador.

The 28-year-old quarterback and his wife, Julie, are dog foster parents—having already helped nearly 10 dogs find permanent homes. They even adopted one of their own; a five-year-old Goldendoodle named Bentley.

"It's a great way to find out what you like and help dogs. It's a win-win for everyone," said Cousins when speaking to People Magazine about why others should consider fostering dogs.

Cousins went on to praise Animal Planet's annual event.

"I love that people tune in. They have had a 100% adoption success rate for every dog involved over the past 13 years," he shared. "In this bowl, there are no losers."

This NFL offseason will certainly be one to remember for Cousins: Puppy Bowl ambassador, Pro Bowl defensive specialist, and soon-to-be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league.
