Kirk Cousins dazzled the football world with his dance steps during the 13th NFL Honors at the Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, Nevada. He showed his moves on stage with Cameron Jordan and the cast of Magic Mike Live.
While that routine is entertaining, it shows progress from his season-ending Achilles injury after eight games. His movement reveals that he’s ready to return as the starting quarterback for his 13th NFL season.
However, the big question is where he will play next season?
His contract with the Minnesota Vikings will expire on March 13, when the 2024 NFL calendar year starts. Therefore, he can negotiate with teams interested in acquiring his services. Teams looking for an upgrade at quarterback, especially those not in a position to get one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2024 NFL draft, should take an interest in the four-time Pro Bowler.
He will turn 36 next season and has a few seasons left in his tank. Therefore, he’s more of a bridge quarterback who can give a few great seasons to a win-now team. While the injuries and hits he has acquired over the years have taken a toll on his body, he’s still good enough to deliver wins for a football team.
His 2,331 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, and five interceptions in eight games indicate he can still perform at a high level. However, his services won’t come cheap. If his last contract paid him $35 million, he could command at least $40 million based on how the quarterback market has escalated.
