Kirk Cousins signs four-year deal with Falcons

Veteran QB Kirk Cousins is signing a four-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons, per his agent.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins was arguably the biggest domino that needed to fall in this free agency period, and with the Falcons getting a deal done, they are secure at the position for now. The Vikings will suddenly become players in the QB market with plenty of options to chase after in free agency or the draft. Cousins has averaged 4,602 yards and 33 touchdowns to 11 interceptions per 17 games over his last three seasons, pairing him with WR Drake London, TE Kyle Pitts and RB Bijan Robinson.

Kirk Cousins to begin discussions with Falcons

Kirk Cousins is expected to begin discussions with the Falcons as soon as the tampering window opens.

Fantasy Impact

Cousins is set to hit free agency where he'll test the open market. It is still possible he returns to Minnesota, but he'll explore offers from other teams before making a decision.

Kirk Cousins, Broncos not expected to pursue deal

The Denver Broncos are not expected to pursue a deal with QB Kirk Cousins despite internal conversations about approaching such a move if he hits free agency.

Fantasy Impact

Some reports are indicating that the Broncos are not expected to be big-game hunters in free agency under center and may opt to approach the season with QB Jarrett Stidham and either a draft pick or another bridge QB, eating their cap struggles and rolling with the punches. Cousins is now expected to test his free agency market. A deal with Denver did not seem like an option realistically considering their current money situation.

Kirk Cousins: Vikings retaining QB a '50-50 proposition'

Veteran QB Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings are reportedly "still talking." While Minnesota hasn't met Cousins' demands, it's considered a "50-50 proposition" that he remains with the team.

Fantasy Impact

Dan Graziano of ESPN said that discussions that Cousins will end up with Atlanta are premature and that Cousins and his family like the idea of staying in Minnesota. However, Jeremy Fowler said that the organization may be hesitant to meet his contractual demands due to the hefty price he's cost in the past ($185 million over six years). It seems Minnesota may be his most likely landing spot, but it's not a shoo-in that he stays yet either.

Kirk Cousins: Vikings aim to re-sign QB, Atlanta to pursue

With QB Kirk Cousins set to hit free agency, the Minnesota Vikings are looking to re-sign the veteran QB, though they won't "live or die by that desire." If he hits the open market, Atlanta is expected to heavily pursue Cousins.

Fantasy Impact

Reportedly, Cousins is open to the reunion but has specific contract demands that Minnesota has yet to reach with him, essentially putting the ball in the front office's court. As well, Cousins is expected to be Atlanta's top priority at the QB position over Justin Fields. The Vikings have a closing window to get a deal done before the market opens.
