The Vikings landed Kirk Cousins as a free agent who signed in 2018, but since then he has not been perfect.
Minnesota has seen Cousins have star games, but he has also taken the team out of key games this season, like those against the Colts and Falcons. With Sean Mannion, Nate Stanley and Jake Browning behind Cousins, there does not seem to be much hope that there is currently another quarterback in the starting caliber on the roster or training team.
CBS Sports is not entirely out of the Vikings’ quarterback situation, but they also do not think the team is necessarily locked inside that position. Outlet listed Minnesota under the mildly exciting category. Here’s what it said about the Vikings’ quarterback situation in connection with the Aries:
The Rams and Vikings’ contracts with their quarterbacks – Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins - are likely to rule out any real move if both teams look at a potential upgrade. But these team (s) did not quite fit into the top category.
The Vikings are likely to be stuck with cousins until at least 2022 and probably 2023 because of his contract. Whether Minnesota finds a cheap, potential replacement remains to be seen.
