Kirk Cousins

Maybe the best possible free agent outcome, at the quarterback position for the Falcons, could be Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Vikings may end up re-signing him, but there is far from anything concrete done on that end yet. Cousins would like a multi-year deal, while some rumors state the Vikings only want to give him a one-year contract.

Take a look at some of the most recent odds on Cousins' next team, per DraftKings Sportsbook. You might be surprised to see the Falcons are number one on the list. Note: these are the odds for all teams not named Minnesota.

Cousins has made a living off of throwing for 4,000 yards in a season. He's done it seven times and, if it weren't for his Achilles tear last season, he'd have been well over that mark once again. He's been as consistent a quarterback as you could ask for over the years.

Say what you want about his primetime record or whether or not you buy into that narrative. The guy is a Pro Bowl talent. He would be an excellent fit in Atlanta and immediately make them a division favorite.
