Minnesota Vikings Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots for Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins' name is starting to pick up a lot of steam in the rumor mill, and it appears that the Minnesota Vikings are willing to move him. As a result, let's go over a few potential landing spots for the veteran QB. 

San Francisco 49ers: The San Francisco 49ers have surprisingly been linked to Kirk Cousins even though they have multiple QBs already. However, it appears that they are quite open to adding a legitimate number-one QB to their group as they aim to make a real Super Bowl push this year. 

New England Patriots: The New England Patriots are likely to consider acquiring Cousins, as they have made it known that they are now willing to move on from Mac Jones. Cousins would be an upgrade over Jones as QB1, and it could be enough for the Patriots to compete for a playoff spot next season by adding him. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are rolling into the season with Baker Mayfield as their current replacement for Tom Brady. That is not very encouraging, so they could look to add a proven starter in Cousins to help strengthen their roster for the 2023 campaign.
