Falcons deny allegations of tampering to sign Kirk Cousins

The Atlanta Falcons could be in trouble after signing Pro Bowl quarterback Kirk Cousins to a four-year, $180 million contract.

Cousins unintentionally stirred the pot during his introductory press conference by stating that he spoke to the Falcons’ head trainer before 4 p.m. on March 13, the first day of the new league. Any dialogue with the team before then could be considered possible tampering.

Since all that, Atlanta has had the hovering speculation that the team could face punishment. However, team owner Arthur Blank voiced that he doesn’t believe that tampering happened.

“The tampering deal, we obviously don’t believe we tampered, and we shared all the information with the league,” Blank said at the NFL’s annual meeting Monday via ESPN. “And they’ll review the process and the facts and they are in the middle of doing that, and whatever the result is, we’ll deal with it.”

The NFL has yet to conduct any investigation, but the league could look into the matter. Nonetheless, the Falcons may finally have a viable quarterback that could lead them back to the playoffs.

Cousins may be coming off a torn Achilles tendon, but he has the proven track record to elevate his team toward postseason action. The Falcons will monitor his recovery, but he should have the pathway to be back on the field by the start of the 2024 season.

Whenever Cousins gets under center, he will have full command as the focal point of the offensive game plan.
