Mentoring Mond: Cousins vows to be 'open book' for rookie QB

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings didn't draft Kellen Mond for a roster filler. At some point in the years ahead, the work-in-progress quarterback from Texas A&M will have the opportunity to become the starter.

The job belongs firmly in the hands of the incumbent for now. Kirk Cousins, coming off a career-best 35 touchdown passes last season, said he's more than willing to be "an open book" when it comes to mentoring Mond.

"You're helpful and you're there and you make yourself available," Cousins said, describing his general approach to helping the entry-level players at his position.
