Falcons' Kirk Cousins: Beef over Michael Penix Jr. not helpful

Kirk Cousins said he doesn't think it's productive to carry resentment toward his new team over their shocking first-round draft pick.  

Cousins, the accomplished veteran quarterback, agreed to a four-year, $180 million contract with the Falcons in March.   

Last month, the team unexpectedly selected a quarterback, Michael Penix Jr. of Washington, with the eighth pick in the draft.  

Cousins' agent, Mike McCartney, told ESPN's Pete Thamel at the time that there was uncertainty and dissatisfaction in Cousins' camp because the Falcons signed his replacement before he ever put on an Atlanta helmet,  

and the team did nothing with its top-10 pick to better for 2024.  

Cousins addressed the subject for the first time in an interview with the "Bussin' With The Boys" podcast, which was published on Tuesday.   

When asked if there was any disagreement with the Falcons over picking Penix, Cousins answered, "I don't think there can be."  

"I don't believe it's useful. We're aiming to win the Super Bowl, which is difficult enough. It's hard enough. Let's all get on the same page and attempt to win the Super Bowl."
