3 reasons trading Kirk Cousins could make sense for the Vikings

Kirk Cousins had a good second season with the Minnesota Vikings in 2019, putting up some of the best numbers of his career and even coming up clutch in a playoff win over the New Orleans Saints.

But in many of the biggest games last season, which could have altered the Vikings’ playoff seed, Cousins fell short. Heading into the final year of his contract, the Vikings have a decision to make. Do they extend Cousins? Do they let him play out his contract and draft his eventual successor this spring? Do they….think about trading him and going in another direction this offseason?

The latter move would be a very bold one. But there are a lot of other veteran quarterbacks set to be available, and the Vikings couldn’t be blamed if they were ready to at them in some fashion.

It’s incredibly unlikely, all things considered, but here are three reasons trading Kirk Cousins could make sense for the Vikings.
