Kirk Cousins Next Team Odds; Potential Free Agent Destinations

Kirk Cousins Next Team Odds; Potential Free Agent Destinations
Fact Checked by Jim Tomlin

The Minnesota Vikings, as will be the case with many NFL teams, will search in the offseason for solutions to improve their fortunes in 2024 after failing to qualify for the playoffs this past season. And Kirk Cousins, their veteran quarterback for the last six seasons, will ponder his own future.

Cousins, 35, tore his Achilles tendon in a late October game against Green Bay just as Minnesota seemed to be getting on track. The Vikings won that game, rallying to 4-4 after an 0-3 start to the season. But after Cousins was injured, the Vikes struggled and finished the year 7-10 in the NFC North. If Minnesota sports betting were legal and regulated, the team would have left a lot of local backers disappointed.

Cousins is a potential free agent, though he has said that he wants to remain with the Vikings. In his six seasons with Minnesota, he has a 50-37-1 record as a starter. In his previous six seasons with Washington, he was 26-30-1. For his career, Cousins has thrown 270 touchdown passes against 110 interceptions. The former Michigan State standout has a lifetime quarterback rating of 98.2 and has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times, most recently in 2021 and 2022.

MinnesotaBets.com, where you can find the best Minnesota sportsbook promo codes when they become available, considered Cousins’ potential landing spot in 2024 and assigned wagering odds and the associated percentages.
