Insider says Kirk Cousins returning to Minnesota in 2024 is "absolutely on the table"

ESPN insiders Jeremy Fowler and Dan Graziano recently shared some of the latest buzz they've been hearing from around the NFL, and Cousins' future with the Vikings was one of the topics they explored.

Graziano stated that he believes a return to Minnesota in 2024 for the veteran quarterback is "absolutely on the table."

He also added that, obviously, it's possible that Cousins could end up elsewhere next year since he is a free agent after the current season, but the quarterback and the Vikings "like each other a lot," so a return to the Twin Cities in 2024 is something that cannot be ruled out yet.
