Before the Vikings restructured Kirk Cousins’ contract for the 2023 season, they were reportedly trying to move him elsewhere.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, there were rumblings at the NFL Combine about the Vikings speaking with the 49ers.
“Apparently at the Scouting Combine there was some noise among people in the league about Cousins being traded to the 49ers,” Florio said. “That was a hot topic at one point.”
49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has raved about Cousins for years. Both of them worked together while in Washington. Florio suggested that San Francisco would’ve sent Trey Lance to Minnesota for Cousins in this hypothetical trade.
