Will Kirk Cousins be the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings next season?

It’s that time of year again where we have to try and figure out which Minnesota Vikings rumors are true and which are totally bogus.

The 2020 season hasn’t even officially come to a close and we already have some massive rumors floating around related to Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Some believe there is a legitimate chance that Cousins could be playing for a different team next season, while others think there isn’t even a chance that Minnesota would send their starting quarterback elsewhere this year.

Cousins is heading into his fourth season as the Vikings starting signal-caller and it’s been almost two decades since the franchise had this much stability under center. Is Minnesota looking to make a quarterback change this year, or are they preparing to move forward with Cousins for at least one more season?

If the Vikings actually do end up trading their starting passer this year, what are some of the reasons why the team might agree to a deal?
