Apparently, Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank really wants Kirk Cousins, and he is willing to pull out all of the stops to sign him.
According to Zach Klein of WSB TV, Blank wants to add Cousins by any means necessary.
“All eyes, all arrows everything points towards Kirk Cousins,” Klein said during an appearance on 92.9 The Game. “Arthur Blank has basically told this front office, ‘Do what you got to do. Pay what you’ve got to pay. Get it done.’”
“Everybody I’ve talked to, agents, other coaches and scouts, that is what they are saying,” added Klein. “What they are hearing is that the Falcons will put all their attention on Kirk Cousins moving forward.”
Atlanta mired through a miserable 2023 campaign as far as its quarterback situation was concerned.
It began the year with Desmond Ridder under center, but Ridder was ultimately replaced by Taylor Heinicke midway through the season. The two signal-callers kept trading places for the remainder of the year, with neither player inspiring any sort of confidence moving forward.
In spite of the Falcons’ poor circumstances at quarterback, they still contended for the NFC South division title.
Perhaps with Kirk Cousins taking snaps, Atlanta would stand a great chance of making the playoffs for the first time since the 2017-18 campaign.
Reports were out that Fields to Atlanta was a done deal. This sure changes things.

So let it be done."
