Kirk Cousins to the Atlanta Falcons gaining buzz at NFL Scouting Combine

According to Atlanta’s WSB-Channel 2 reporter Zach Klein, the buzz around Indianapolis is that the Atlanta Falcons are going to avert a lot of attention to acquiring Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Klein went on Dukes & Bell, an Atlanta sports radio station, and explained the extent to Atlanta’s interest in the 35-year-old free agent.

“Everybody I’ve talked to says the logical thing is a veteran move, all eyes, all arrows, everything points to Kirk Cousins. Arthur Blank has basically told his front office staff ‘Do what you got to do, pay what you got to pay, get it done. Everybody that I’ve talked to, agents, other coaches and scouts, guys around the league, that’s the feeling and that’s what they are hearing. The Falcons are putting all their attention on Cousins.”

If Cousins was not to return to Minnesota, the most likely destination from the start was Atlanta. With Atlanta being a quarterback away from contending in a weak NFC South, the thought of one of the NFC’s best quarterbacks is a tantalizing option.
