Kirk Cousins ​​believes the coach, GM, owner and QB will be “on the same page” in Atlanta

Kirk Cousins ​​believes the coach, GM, owner and QB will be “on the same page” in Atlanta

In Minnesota, when it came to keeping quarterback Kirk Cousins, it seemed like the head coach and someone else weren't on the same page. In his introductory press conference with the Falcons, Cousins ​​indirectly alluded to the Vikings' lack of alignment, by praising his presence with his new team.

“When the owner, general manager, head coach and quarterback are on the same page, then you really have a chance to win a Super Bowl,” Cousins ​​said. “When I look at the Atlanta Falcons, I strongly believe that the owner, head coach, general manager and quarterback can all be on the same page. That's exciting to me, and that's why I'm thrilled to be here.”

If everyone was on the same page in Minnesota, Cousins ​​would still be there. In recent years, his situation with the Vikings has become more “year-to-year,” he said. The Falcons have committed $90 million for two years, with another $10 million that will flow through 2026, if the Falcons decide after two years with Cousins ​​to move on.

It's still unclear what the Vikings offered. Cousins' reference to “year to year” suggests it was essentially a one-year deal, perhaps with a team option for a second year. If so, it wouldn't have been easy for Cousins ​​to pick the Falcons.
