Cousins is getting paid!!
Compensation update: Falcons are giving QB Kirk Cousins a four-year, $180 million deal including $100 million guaranteed, per source. It’s $45 million per average per year.
Giggle....... I smell an absolute catastrophe heading Atlanta's way.

I'll be really curious to see if they draft another RB to replace Dillon in the 3-4 round area.
They've also said within the last couple of days that they expect Wilson to play a much larger role this year, and get a lot of snaps in various situations. They may wait until Day 3 to get another RB.

We shall see. Apparently Achilles tears are not the kiss of death they used to be.
How old is Cousins? How many playoff games has he won? How mobile is he? Does Atlanta have a good offensive line and good WR's? I'm thinking this could be a 180m dollar mistake. The Vikings? They'll get a 3rd round compensatory if they don't buy too many free agents.

Seems like he has been around forever!! Will be fun to see how it unfolds.

This will be his 12 year. Sure seems like he should be as old as Rodgers though!

Wow............ didn't see that coming. That's sad. Jones was my favorite Packer. It's a new day for sure.

No sweat. We got 11 draft picks. Draft 6 safeties and 5 Cornerbacks. Someone should emerge. :cool:

Personally, I don't want to go into the draft needing 3 starters in the secondary.

Gute would be wise to find Free Agents to fill those spots and use the draft to deepen them and prepare for 2025 and beyond.

While I love the idea of a Jones and Jacobs backfield, I don't if the Packers don't have the cap space to sign a high end FA safety. I would hate to start the season with a #1 safety on the depth chart being a rookie.

Not sure about their OLine but they definitely have weapons in London, Pitts and Bijan. My guess is the #8 pick will be an OT or a WR.

WOW....now THAT is a shocker. Did not see that coming. They must be worried about his age and availability. The Josh Jacobs signing now makes more sense.
