Falcons Podcast: Kirk Cousins Rumors, 7-Round Mock Draft

On Wednesday’s episode of the Falcons Podcast, we broke down the latest rumors connecting Kirk Cousins to the Atlanta Falcons. We also looked at the recent mock drafts that include Jayden Daniels, Dallas Turner, and Jared Verse to Atlanta with the No. 8 pick.

What are the Falcons best options at quarterback? How soon could a decision be made? How realistic is the trade option The Athletic proposed for the Falcons to get Daniels?

We start the 7-Round Atlanta Falcons mock draft at the 57:00 mark of the Falcons Podcast. We went into the mock with the idea that the Falcons acquired either Kirk Cousins or Justin Fields before the draft. The free agency contact period begins Sunday at Noon. Atlanta could be done at quarterback as soon as early next week.

** Editor’s Note – Richie Grant’s Salary is NOT guaranteed for 2024 as I said at the end of the mock draft. The Falcons save $3.12 million against the cap if Grant is cut this year.
