2. Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons are another team that desperately needs to sign Kirk Cousins. The Falcons seemed to rely on Desmond Ridder to make the year two leap, after a moderately promising rookie year. Well, Ridder actually looks worse this year, and backup QB Taylor Heinicke, is, well, a backup. The Falcons have a chance to go 7-10 for the third-straight year under head coach Arthur Smith.

And this year, their sub-par QB production has been very clear, as the team is fielding one of the better defenses in the NFL and has a very good situation with their skill players on offense. Truly, the Falcons might be a QB away, especially in the embarrassingly weak NFC South. If Arthur Smith does get another year, he'll have to make a splash move to acquire a QB.

And he'll need immediate results. Pulling the plug on the Desmond Ridder experience and signing Kirk Cousins makes a ton of sense. Cousins has proven to be a very efficient QB. He's thrown 270 touchdowns and 110 interceptions over his career. His 98.2 passer rating is very good, as he's been a full-time starter since 2015.

I do think in some ways, Cousins is similar to a former Falcons legend, Matt Ryan. The fit makes sense for both parties.
