Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is one of the NFL’s most experienced passers, but he could find himself on the move this offseason.

Cousins has been with the Vikings since 2018, but he’s set to hit free agency and will likely be the most sought-after quarterback on the free agent market despite turning 36 years old before the 2024 season.

The Vikings are the betting favorites to be Cousins’ next team (-200), as they’re likely to make a push to re-sign him since it was clear that they missed him after he tore his Achilles.

There were questions surrounding the Vikings wanting to bring Cousins back due to his age and recent injury, but he appears to be their best option and should be ready for the start of 2024.

Other quarterback-needy teams such as the Atlanta Falcons could make a push to sign Cousins, and they appear to be the biggest threat to the Vikings at +300 to be the team that Cousins takes his next snap for.

The Falcons are rumored to be targeting Bears quarterback Justin Fields in a trade, but Cousins would also make sense as a clear upgrade for a team that needs to revamp their quarterback room.

The New England Patriots (+800), Pittsburgh Steelers and Las Vegas Raiders (+1000) could also use upgrades under center and might enter the Cousins sweepstakes.

A team that’s surprisingly high on the odds chart is the San Francisco 49ers at +1800, as they appear to have their quarterback of the future in Brock Purdy, but 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan may be interested having coached Cousins in Washington.

The Washington Commanders, Tennessee Titans (+2000) and Denver Broncos (+2200) are some other teams that could use quarterback upgrades, but they all seem like longshots for Cousins as teams that are rebuilding their rosters.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3500) could enter the conversation if negotiations with Baker Mayfield don’t go as planned, and a couple of other longshots include the Chicago Bears and New York Giants at 50-to-1.

The NFL free agency negotiating window is set to begin on March 13, and Cousins will likely have plenty of suitors and pick his next team not too long after that.
