Report: Panthers called Vikings about Kirk Cousins

Minnesota Vikings v Carolina Panthers

The quarterback carousel will soon be spinning. Before it happens (and as it happens), plenty of calls will be made between plenty of teams regarding plenty of possible transactions.

Here’s one that came out of the blue on Monday. Judd Zulgad of SKOR North reported, via Anthony Rizzuti of Yahoo.com, that the Panthers have called the Vikings about a potential trade for quarterback Kirk Cousins.

The Panthers are desperate to find a franchise quarterback, and they need to show a significant uptick in performance in 2022 to save the regime of coach Matt Rhule. Cousins, while not good enough in four seasons to take the Vikings beyond the divisional round, has generated solid performances. The Panthers, in recent years, have done worse.

Cousins has a fully-guaranteed salary of $35 million for 2022 and a cap number in Minnesota of $45 million. It’s the last year of his deal, and the franchise tag for 2023 would cost more than $60 million, given that Washington already has tagged him twice and that he’d be in line for a 44-percent raise over his 2022 cap number.

“They have gotten a call,” Zulgad said of the Vikings. “Now, from what I’ve heard, it went nowhere so far. But it’s interesting that the phone did ring . . . and on the other end of the line . . . the Carolina Panthers.”

The Vikings said that they don’t plan to trade Cousins as of now, per Zulgad. That could change, frankly, if the Vikings try to get Cousins to sign an extension that reduces his cap number and he resists. PFT has reported that Cousins plans to take a wait-and-see approach regarding his future, although the hiring of coach Kevin O’Connell is viewed as a positive.

Cousins reportedly refuses to take a pay cut, which shouldn’t be regarded as a surprise by anyone. His $35 million for 2022 is fully guaranteed. Why reduce it? If he’s cut, he still gets every penny.

Since parting ways with Cam Newton two years ago, the Panthers have cycled through Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Darnold. The Panthers owe Darnold $18.8 million fully guaranteed for 2022.

Plenty of Vikings fans would like to move on from Cousins. Until there’s a better option on board, however, trading Cousins entails significant risk.

  1. Please trade the science-denying fool who cares more about himself than his team. It would be a great way to truly start over as a franchise.

  2. The Vikings, still trying to get back to where Case Keenum got them. The Panthers, still trying to get back to where Newton & Bridgewater got them.

    Both teams have spent far more on replacements for the above, and regressed.

    Cautionary tales!

  3. The odds of the team finding a better option for next season if they trade Cousins are low, absolutely.

    But I wouldn’t quantify trading a top 15-ish QB making $40 million + as a “significant risk” for a team that finished under .500 last season. Unless the new coaching staff is superb and Zimmer and Co. were among the league’s worst, this team isn’t going to contend until they put significant resources into the defense again.

  4. Being from NC I actually hate the Panthers almost as much as the Cowboys. This was Redskins country before the panthers came in 1996. However this may be the thing to actually make me pay attention to them. Love my dude Cousins

  5. Is there anyone in the NFL with a bigger disconnect between talent and paycheck than Kirk Cousins? The man lives under a lucky star and has somehow turned mediocrity into enormous wealth.

  6. Anyone who’s followed Kirk Cousins at all knows he’s not going to take anything less than the max. Say what you want about the guy as a player but he’s aced this thing on the business side. His agent should be feared in league circles.

  7. I think Jimmy G would be the perfect fit down there. They should be calling the 49ers.

  8. Be interesting to know what was actually discussed. Maybe Darnold and a 1st round pick for Cousins? Darnold could serve as a 1 year bridge QB while the Vikings draft a young QB this year and let Mond and that pick sit a year behind Darnold. They’d gain about 16 million in salary cap relief dropping Kirk’s 35 milion and taking on Darnolds 19 million.

  9. Who was the last qb to take the Vikings to an NFC championship game?

    Right. Case Keenum.

    Instead of keeping Keenum, they overpaid Kirk Cousins for his excellent stats rather than his woebegone victories.

    Good riddance.

  10. Kirk cousins is an over priced Andy Dalton. He’s a nightmare for fans because he’s just good enough to hold onto the job but not good enough to win more than half your games. Dump him, try Jimmy G or any other average starter and get out from under the salary. Took Cincinnati way too long to see that an average QB is worse than a bad one, Minnesota is in the same boat.

  11. Cousins puts up good numbers, but I’ve watched enough times where his terrible decision making costs games. He’s not the guy.

  12. Two 1st rounders, one this year, one next year and the Vikings eat the cap hit. You like that?? I do.

  13. Do It!!! Not sure what there trade assets are, but it needs to be explored. As a Viking fan, something needs to happen. Give Mond a shot-apparently O’Connell can work with QB’s. Let’s see what he’s got.

  14. Getting rid of Cousins should be goal #1. Even a lawyer-type who runs a web page should be able to see that the roster is not even close to being super bowl ready.

  15. If Cousins won’t rework his deal to win, then trade him. He’s made a ton of money already. He’s not elite.

  16. Sign Cousins to a guaranteed extension Ziggy, and keep him in MN!!
    If you really, really can’t, then hand over the reins to Mond.

    Signed,

    All Vikings fans
    (Wink wink)

  17. So, Carolina is so desperate they want to take on Cousins 35M + Darnolds 18M guaranteed. What would they trade? They already gave up this year’s 2nd and 4th round picks last year to get Darnolds. Is the owner so ruthlessly sproud that he will let Matt Rhule ruin another year and make it harder for anyone else who might take over in the future

  18. New General Manager, new head coach, new assistants and now a phone call from Carolina. That just puts the exclamation point on another off-season Championship. What is it now, 61 in a row?

    SKOLOL

  19. If the Vikings were smart they would trade him. He will never win anything except stat awards.

  20. I may be naive, but how much money does a person need, really? Kirk seems like the type who values faith, family and other good things in life over money… why not agree to rework the deal, take a bit less the next couple of years (heaven knows you’ve made a boatload already) and in the process, create not only cap room for the good of the team, but a heck of a lot of goodwill and positivity among the fanbase. If he refuses to budge, they’re not able to (or decide not to) trade him and the team suffers because of it, it’s going to take a lot of luster off the good vibe that’s happening now with the new coach and GM.

  21. Cousins going to get extra years from team trading for him to reduce his cap hit, or Vikes will have to trade him + $15m to make it palatable. Panthers make sense as the South is weak without Brady. Cousins gets him to 1st round loss, better than nothing. But what do the Vikes do without Cousins?

  22. I would gladly take the ghost of Jake Delhomme and $7 worth of scratch-offs in return of Captain Kirk.

  23. 4300 yds 66 com% 33 tds 7 ints and Viking fans want him gone ? Are you replacing him with Burrow? Mahomes? Allen? Rodgers? Herbert?

  24. Zulgad is a hack and a troll. Any scoops he has to offer are the product of his lame-brained imagination.

  25. Cousins has them between a rock and a hard place. The reality is if they jettison him now whoever comes in will almost certainly be a downgrade. If they keep him it means tying up a lot of money that could be used fixing the defense which is where the real problems with the team lie. I know Cousins is divisive and I’m not saying going forward with him equals success for the Vikings but I honestly think if Shanahan had him instead of Garappolo the 49ers would have won at least one Superbowl over the last few years. O’Connell has just seen first hand what can be achieved with a QB who most people think is a level below elite. It would be a brave move by him to take his chances with someone else knowing full well that most HC’s career lives and dies with the guy playing that position.

  26. Kirk Cousins is a damn good quarterback, but because of Zimmer’s lack of defense (the defense ranks last in everything) Kirk Cousins is somehow the scapegoat?

  27. The Panthers and Broncos again will duke it out to see who is most incompetent in evaluating quarterbacks

  28. Surely the brain trust in Carolina has to see that a move like this would set them back even further than they already are. They’ve swung at a QB 2 years in a row and came up empty both times. What do you have left to trade to get a QB? Then if you get one, how will you protect him and surround him with additional talent?

    They should stand pat with what they have (Darnold), use your draft picks & free agency to build the OL, and accept their fate for one more year.

    I know Rhule probably needs to win to keep his job, but ownership should understand that this is a long term thing. Trading away future assets to help a coach who is likely out the door next year anyways won’t be good for the long-term health of the team.

  29. Please please please trade for Kurt (as Bruce Allen kept calling him) Cousins!!

    Signed,

    The Rest of the NFC South

  30. All these Cousins bobos be like “who are you gonna get who is better?” and I’m like, no one — but you can find someone CHEAPER. My goodness. Like buying an expensive car to drive two miles to work every day. NOT EFFICIENT USE OF FUNDS.

  31. Both these teams are in desperation mode. Cousins is not that bad of a QB he’s not the issue in Minny.

  32. Texans trade Watson, and his $35M cap hit to the Panthers…the Texans must take Darnold and his $18M cap hit for 2022 (as well as some competition for Davis Mills) in addition to 2 firsts, 2 seconds and another player.

  33. Carson Wentz was traded for a mid first round pick and a third round pick (or equivalent value in other rounds). This is roughly what the Vikings could expect trading Cousins. This draft has the unique characteristic of having lots of very good QBs with strong developmental potential, but no true franchise types that will step in right away. With an extra choice in the late first round, they could draft one of these QBs and still use their other first round pick to draft a much needed defensive player. Assuming they sign a bridge QB like Marcus Mariota, they would save an additional $20M or so against the cap which could be used to sign two more good free agents. Cousins is the Vikings past, he is not the future.

    What’s it like still believing the lies your government told you?

  35. How many game winning drives did Couins have last year only for a missed field goal, a fumble or the defense going pear shaped and not being able to stop the opponent only to lose on the final play of the game. I think Cousin’s is going to thrive in O’Connell’s offense and with the weapons he has Cook, Mattison, Jefferson, Thielen and Irv Smith coming back they will be pretty explosive. Its the defense that needs the overhaul – that defense was the difference between an 11-5 team and the team being 8-9. Don’t forget Cousins also orchrestrted a drive in the final minutes to beat Green Bay on a field goal – ya knwo that great Green Bay defense that was bragged about all year.

  36. The deal was something like we will give you a third or maybe a second if you are willing to pay half of Kirk’s salary and we can throw in Darnold if you want him. More likely Kirk becomes a free agent next year and finds out he is worth about around $30 million a year from a desperate coach/gm (cough, cough if Shanahan isn’t canned Niners) going all in to save their jobs to have a winning season.

    The problem for the Vikings is the free agent market has no QB that is even close to Kirk’s talent and 2022 draft has nothing that is even close to be NFL starting talent. Which brings the next question clear the roster of as much of the over paid talent (Barr, Cousins) tank, ie let Mond play who wasn’t that good in college, try to draft a QB in 23 without as much roster burden that they have now.

  37. Trading Cousins only makes sense if Rodgers leaves Green Bay. If Rodgers leaves, the other 3 QBs in the division are: Jordan Love, Justin Fields, and Jared Goff. It would be the perfect time to start a rebuild because the other division rivals will not be very good, making it the new version of the NFC (l)East where any competent QB play could win the division. If Rodgers stays in GB and they trade Cousins, the Vikings will go from second best QB in the division to the worst, and lose a lot of games.

  38. He’s got a year left on his deal with a massive cap hit and he’s an average QB and a below average winner, yet some of you think MN can get 2 firsts for him? Only way they get a high pick for him is if they figure out a way to trade him away while keeping his cap hit.

  39. How many game winning drives did Couins have last year only for a missed field goal, a fumble or the defense going pear shaped and not being able to stop the opponent only to lose on the final play of the game. I think Cousin’s is going to thrive in O’Connell’s offense and with the weapons he has Cook, Mattison, Jefferson, Thielen and Irv Smith coming back they will be pretty explosive. Its the defense that needs the overhaul – that defense was the difference between an 11-5 team and the team being 8-9. Don’t forget Cousins also orchrestrted a drive in the final minutes to beat Green Bay on a field goal – ya knwo that great Green Bay defense that was bragged about all year.

    You answered your own question. The defense was a miserable failure last year and in 2020. They were a miserable failure because Cousins gigantic contract made it impossible to sign replacements for the aging members of our defense. A team can’t survive having one team member eating up nearly one quarter of the salary cap especially when that player is not a franchise player.

  40. Cousins is a genius. He’s managed to have his overinflated stats shadow his mediocre performance in the most meaningful stat, wins and losses, into millions.

  41. Kirk’s an average QB with an extraordinary cap number. He’s had a ton of weapons in Minny with hit-or-miss results. If you can get a box of cracker jacks for him and get that number off the books I’d do that in a second. He’s not winning you a Super Bowl.

  42. “4300 yds 66 com% 33 tds 7 ints and Viking fans want him gone ? Are you replacing him with Burrow? Mahomes? Allen? Rodgers? Herbert?” PPffffft, when did facts ever enter into the comments section of PFT?

    Science denying? Looks like he was right all along

  44. The same fans that say Cousins suck think he should be worth two first round picks and a QB in a trade. They don’t know football…I will trust the new staff to make the best decision for a World Class organization like the Vikings.

    How many of those defensive players were injured thru out the year? Take a look at the Vikings record when Hunter was healthy undoubtdly the best Vikings pass rusher, Barr missed games, Kendricks missed games as well as Peterson. You cannot blame it all on Couins contract – by your logic Rodgers is the reason why the Packers get beat in the play-offs all the time because they cannot sign good defensive and Rodgers makes more than Cousins. You should have depth at defensive positions and they did not, your depth players do not need big contracts. Coaching also plays a HUGE part and in my opinion the game passed Zimmer by defensiveley.

    Dalvin Tomlinson, DT

    Its all because Cousins isn’t sexy enough like a Rodgers,Mahomes, Allen etc. Guys like Mahomes and Rodgers are generational players- not every draft has them and not every team gets them. For every Randy Moss or Cooper Kupp you go thru about 15-20 maybe even more to find a Justin jefferson or a Davante Adams. Kids now days play too much Madden……lol.

    It’s people like you that make it possible for the Vikings to trade Cousins. Just look at those beautiful stats! The only difference between Cousins and those other guys is that they win games. There will always be a coach who thinks a better quarterback is the missing link between his team and a championship and those stats will have him drooling. Just don’t show him the stats about the Vikings leading the league in three-and-outs, finishing 26th in third down percentage, and what Cousins does under pressure. If they can get out from under that contract, they should trade him for whatever they can get.

    This may shock you but there is information out there from healthcare specialists that have trained their entire careers that contradicts what your government tells you, and their opinions are based on actual published scientific journal articles. Someone in authority tells you to do something because it’s “safe and effective” and that’s good enough for you.

Panthers make sense as the South is weak without Brady. Cousins gets him to 1st round loss, better than nothing. But what do the Vikes do without Cousins?
    //////////./
    Why do people believe this is even an option? If your boss came to you and said we really know you like it here and the job fits your lifestyle but we’re expecting a slowdown so we’re going to ask you to give back 10-20% of your salary. Your coworkers get to keep theirs. Your reply?

    I remember my son wondering the same thing when Prince Fielder left the Brewers for more money and he was upset bc he was his favorite player. “Would you play for $25M a year and be happy?” Heck yes!! And how do you feel if the kid down the street, who’s half the ball player you are got $35M a year. “You’re still happy, right?” Silence….

  53. Cousins puts up good numbers, you have to give him that. But going to the Panthers, who have digressed as a team under Rhule’s rule, would not be a move in Kirk’s best interest. He should stay put and see what the new regime does for the Vikings.

    Robert Malone – inventor of mRNA technology
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Wrong. He’s been discredited by experts and associates for years. He’s big on opinions. Try again.

    The development of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines (and any future mRNA vaccines) was built on the work of countless researchers. Among these is Malone, who together with his co-authors contributed early evidence that mRNA could be successfully delivered to and expressed in cells. Following a fact-check by Logically, Malone admitted that he did not invent the mRNA vaccines, but instead contributed to the “vaccine technology platform”. While he contributed to this field when it emerged, Malone is not the “inventor” of the mRNA vaccines, but one of the hundreds of researchers that contributed to their current success.

  57. Listen anyone who thinks cousins is the problem let me lay some logic on you

    Game 1 bengals cousins is driving in over time putting us in position to win and cook fumbles the ball must be his fault.

    Game 2 against the cardinals drives down the field to win the game our kicker misses a 37 yard kick once again must be cousins fault.

    Game 3 example panthers game we are winning 28 to 20 with 2min left panthers on their own 2 yard line defense lets them drive down and score and tie the game must be cousins fault.. though he won us the game on a deep pass in over time crazy…

    game 4 example dallas beats us with a back up qb yup that must be cousins fault too that our defense couldnt stop a back up qb when it counted most.

    game 5 example the packers at home we score to make it 31 to 24 as cousins is getting blasted delivers perfect pass to jefferson. then 30 sec later our defense allows a 75 yard touchdown tying pass must be cousins fault

    game 6 example cousins throws a pass to kj osbourne in the endzone tips off his hands for an interception against the rams.. it was a perfect pass yet im sure thats cousins fault too..

    since being with the vikings cousins has 36 tds in the redzone and like 3 interceptions and one clearly no his fault top stat among all qbs in the nfl since being here 124 tds to like 36 picks again one of the top in the last 4 years.. please please tell me again how the problem is cousins ill wait for your stats facts and logic to back it up also on top of it all his line has never been above 25th in the league blocking wise…

    ________________

    Dr. Peter McCullough, one of the most-published physicians in history. Go to Google Scholar and put in his name and Covid-19 and you’ll find plenty of contradictory articles. Here’s one example of an article that directly contradicts Fauci’s advice to those who get Covid to go home and wait until you can’t breathe, then go to the hospital:

    Santin, A. D., Scheim, D. E., McCullough, P. A., Yagisawa, M., & Borody, T. J. (2021). Ivermectin: a multifaceted drug of Nobel prize-honoured distinction with indicated efficacy against a new global scourge, COVID-19. New Microbes and New Infections, 43, 100924.

    Now it’s your turn. Name one published article that Fauci has ever cited to support any recommendation he has ever made. I’ll wait.

  61. McCullough is another wack-job that has been proven wrong too many times to list herein.

    “Joe Rogan interview with Peter McCullough contains multiple false and unsubstantiated claims about the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines.”

    Still waiting for one legitimate name. You’re 0-2.

    BTW…..Fauci said the pandemic will be extended at least one year due to the emergence of variants that were allowed to evolve because too few people took it seriously and refused to wear masks. Bingo! He warned us. It happened. Thanks for that, moron’s.

  62. This thread was about the Panthers calling the Vikes about trading for Cousins. But now it turned into a freaking Covid thing! My God people shut the hell up about it! Some people wear masks some don’t, some are vaccinated some are not.Live with it! Bunch of freaking crybabies!

  63. We haven’t been able above the.500 in over 2 years with an average QB who’s only getting more expensive… Rhule is going into year 3 with only 10 total wins and needs to win now in a division that is up for grabs with Brady and Payton gone. Take everything we can get and move on. Hopefully with good ammo to move up in next year’s draft to get a top QB

  64. I’m a Viking fan since 1969, I have an interesting idea for a trade to get us out of the cap issue… Trade Cousins to the Colts for two second round picks 2022/2023 and the rights to Andrew Luck! let the Colts trade their QB get a 2nd for Wentz they are out of only a 2nd, we get cap space and a great QB, they get a chance to win now.. We trade down a few spots (swap 1st round picks) and get another 2nd or 3rd and draft the following CB, DE,LB WR, in the first two rounds.. S, C/T round 3&4…
