Future of the Vikings, Part 7: Quarterback

If the Vikings weren’t willing to go all-in on Cousins prior to 2023, why would they want to do it now? Whether it’s logical to weigh as part of the decision or not, the performance of Vikings backups highlighted Cousins’ talent for operating Kevin O’Connell’s offense. If the Vikings brass believes it can pick up where Cousins left off with the offseason in Week 8, 2023, they might be willing to set aside the ramifications of a big QB contract and historical age comparisons in order to stay in the mix in the NFC North rather than risking a draft pick or bridge QB not being able to recreate his high-level performance.
