Kirk Cousins Won't Receive Franchise Tag

Sunday, February 18, 6:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins cannot be franchise-tagged by the organization. That said, Cousins is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The veteran quarterback is looking for a bounce-back campaign after tearing his Achilles in 2023. It sounds like the Vikings are hopeful to bring back Cousins next season. It's worth noting that Cousins should have a sizable market this offseason. At the moment, it's unknown what kind of contract Cousins will be seeking this offseason. The Vikings could end up in a bidding war in free agency because they won't be able to franchise tag the veteran signal-caller.

Jameis Winston Hopes To Stay In New Orleans

Wednesday, February 14, 2:04 PM

New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston, who will become a free agent in March, said he "would love to stay in New Orleans forever." Winston has spent the last four seasons with the team and would remain ticketed for a backup role yet again in 2024 behind Derek Carr if he chooses to re-sign. The Saints are currently projected to be well over the salary cap this year, which is nothing new for the organization, but it could prove difficult for them to get something done to keep Winston around as QB insurance. The 30-year-old veteran has made 10 starts for the team in his four-year run with them and went 25-for-47 for 264 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in seven appearances when Carr was banged up in 2023.
