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.

Jackson's scoring on the first two drives of the second half led to a strategic shift to an ultra-run-heavy approach, tempering his passing statistics for the day. As the AFC's top seed, the impending title game will be at M&T Bank Stadium against either the Bills or Chiefs presents a challenge, with both teams ranking in the bottom 10 in points allowed to quarterbacks. Nevertheless, Jackson is anticipated to deliver robust numbers as the linchpin of the entire offense.
