Kirk Cousins has 'no beef' with Falcons despite team's surprising decision to draft Michael Penix

Four-time Pro Bowler Kirk Cousins appeared surprised at the Atlanta Falcons' decision to draft a quarterback in the first round just over a month after signing the veteran quarterback to a massive four-year contract.

The Cousins signing in free agency was viewed as a move for the Falcons to stabilize the quarterback position for at least the next couple of seasons. Quarterbacks Desmond Ridder and Taylor Heinicke largely struggled to bring any consistency to the position last season. Instead of drafting a defensive player or bolstering te wide receiver room, the Falcons used the eighth overall draft pick on quarterback Michael Penix Jr.

On Tuesday, Cousins broke his silence on whether he was harboring any hard feelings about the team's decision to essentially draft his replacement.
