What’s next for Minnesota? Vikings QB options after Kirk Cousins signs with Falcons

For the first time since 2017, Kirk Cousins will not be the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. Where does the team go from here?

The 35-year-old veteran agreed to terms on a four-year, $180 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday according to several reports. With their franchise quarterback out of the building, the Vikings will have the rest of the offseason to determine who they’ll turn to as their starter under center for 2024 (and beyond).

Minnesota’s three main options are sticking with in-house options, hitting the free agency market or taking a young quarterback in April’s NFL draft. The team may also go for some combination of those three.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Vikings after Cousins’ looming departure.
