Start frying his Magic City wings now! Former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has reached a 4-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

Free Agent Market

Cousins informed the Vikings of his plans to test the free-agent market which would allow him to begin talks with other teams on Monday. 

During his time in Minnesota, Kirk has posted impressive statistics. 

Since 2018, he’s earned three Pro Bowl nods and amassed 23,265 passing yards with 171 touchdowns and only 55 interceptions. 

Unfortunately, his stellar 2023 season was cut short by an Achilles injury after just eight games.
