No 2. Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins
It may be time for another change of scenery for Kirk Cousins. The 10-year veteran has split his career between Washington (six seasons) and Minnesota (four seasons), but has still yet to find success in the playoffs.
Statistically speaking, Cousins is an outstanding quarterback during the regular season. In his four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, he’s recorded 124 touchdowns, 36 interceptions, and completed 68.3% of his passes.
The rub, however, has been his inability to get to Vikings into the playoffs and win. In fact, Cousins has won just one playoff game in his entire career (2019 at New Orleans). He’s been to the playoffs in just three seasons during his career, amassing a 1-3 record.
Vikings fans are ready to move on from Cousins and team executives may be as well, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora.
Canfora tweeted on March 9 that he’s hearing from NFL executives the Vikings want to “move big contracts and reset their cap/payroll. A Kirk Cousins trade would not surprise me at this point.”
Cousins is most definitely a name to keep an eye on as we move forward this offseason.
No 1. San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo
It’s not a matter of if Jimmy Garoppolo gets traded, it’s a matter of when. NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport said things are heating up quickly on the Jimmy G trade front.
With the rapid pace at which teams have been dealing quarterbacks this offseason, Garoppolo could be traded any day now it seems.
The San Francisco 49ers are eager to hand the quarterback duties over to Trey Lance full-time. Several teams have already been linked to Jimmy G, chief among them being the Indianapolis Colts.
Don’t be surprised if the Pittsburgh Steelers or another QB-needy team try to out-bid the Colts to acquire Garoppolo.
