    Atlanta’s deal with Kirk Cousins made sense for the player and the team. Now the Falcons have a veteran answer at the position and Cousins has another two years of guaranteed money and a wealth of talent around him on offense.

    While the Falcons and Cousins both come out of Monday as winners, there will be a host of other teams and players impacted, too. Among them: The Bears and Justin Fields; the “second tier” draft quarterbacks and the Vikings, Broncos and Raiders; and the Lions and Jared Goff.

    Here’s why.

  • Report: QB Marcus Mariota signing with Commanders on 1-year deal

  • Vikings reportedly signing RB Aaron Jones

    Jones stays in the NFC North, which will allow him to get revenge on the Packers, who released Jones on Monday after seven seasons. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the deal is for one year and $7 million.

  • Bills bringing back DL DaQuan Jones

  • Sam Darnold joins the QB room in Minnesota after Kirk Cousins departs

  • Jets get better insurance policy at backup QB spot

    Tyrod Taylor will be Aaron Rodgers’ backup in the 2024 season, according to an NFL Network report.

  • Protect Bryce Young at all costs.

  • Bengals reportedly changing their backfield

    Out: Joe Mixon after seven seasons in Cincinnati, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

    In: Zack Moss, the former Colt, lands in Cincinnati on a two-year, $8 million deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

  • Nice to see Wil Lutz has jokes.

  • Video: Breaking down a day of big deals for free agent RBs

  • Fantasy implications with RB Antonio Gibson headed to New England

  • Could Aaron Jones end up with a division rival after Packers cut ties?

  • One LB in, one LB out for the Browns

  • 49ers continue living on the edge (rushers)

  • Seahawks bringing back key DL Leonard Williams, per reports

    Williams was Yahoo’s No. 3 ranked defensive lineman on the free agent market this season.

    Seahawks traded for him midseason and are keeping him around after a productive stretch.

  • Next franchise QB in New England? Nope, but Brissett is back!

    Jacoby Brissett started his career in New England. Now he’s reportedly coming back on a 1-year, $8 million deal.

    Patriots, of course, still own the No. 3 pick in the draft and are expected to take a QB.

  • Dolphins have their apparent replacement at center

    Miami already lost guard Robert Hunt earlier in the day, and with center Connor Williams is also set to hit free agency, the team had a major need on the interior offensive line.

  • Jaguars’ active day continues with another addition at CB
