Kirk Cousins will leave the Vikings, agreeing to terms with the Falcons

In six years with the Vikings, Kirk Cousins started more games at quarterback than all but two players in franchise history, and threw more touchdown passes than all but one. He signed the first fully guaranteed veteran contract in NFL history six years ago, led the Vikings to their first road playoff victory in 15 years, earned $185 million from the team, went from an enigma to a popular figure thanks in part to a Netflix series, directed the largest comeback in NFL history on the way to a division title and lost his only home playoff game.

He tore his right Achilles tendon at Lambeau Field on Oct. 29. It turned out to be his final game as the Vikings starting quarterback.

On Monday, Cousins' agent, Mike McCartney, posted on social media that the quarterback had agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons. Once the free agent signing period begins on Wednesday afternoon, Cousins' time with the Vikings will officially be over.
