Here is a statement from the Minnesota Vikings about not being able to re-sign quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has agreed to sign a free agent deal with the Atlanta Falcons:

“After significant and positive dialogue with Kirk and his representatives, we were unable to reach agreement on a contract that fits the short and long-term visions for both Kirk and the Minnesota Vikings. Kirk holds a special place in Vikings history, and we appreciate his leadership and contributions to the team and the Minneapolis-St. Paul community over the past six seasons. We wish him, his wife, Julie, and their children all the best. Our approach heading into free agency always included layers of contingencies regarding the quarterback position. We are moving forward with plans that allow us to continue building a roster that can compete for a championship.” – Vikings General Manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah
