On Monday, the NFL Network reported that at least two teams are prepared to offer Cousins a three-year, fully guaranteed contract and one other team is willing to come close to a fully guaranteed deal.
Of course, there will be tight competition to land Cousins, the 29-year-old who with the Washington Redskins threw for 4,093 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season.
The Redskins selected Cousins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, before watching him push his way into the starting lineup. "We have great direction with the Denver Broncos - I said it 50 million times".
Cousins or Keenum. Keenum or Cousins. Earlier this month, the team opted not to use the franchise tag on Cousins, which was expected after they agreed to acquire Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs.
"Knowing I will not be putting on a Redskins jersey next season, it's hard to look back at all that's taken place and not become emotional", Cousins wrote on his website. And while many teams are in on him, only two might offer what he wants. Thank you all for the opportunity you gave me.
Bills to trade LT Cordy Glenn to Bengals
The Bills had been looking to unload Glenn and the Bengals were in desperate need of an upgrade at the offensive tackle position. As long as he's healthy, Glenn will be an instant upgrade over any tackle that the Bengals now have on the roster.
This makes McCarron a very interesting name to me. At the time, many people saw his selection as foolish.
Cousins had mentioned in an interview that he would "love it" if the Denver Broncos are interested in him, which they are.
If the Broncos want to go from 5-11 thanks to a terrible eight-game losing streak in 2017 to 10-6 and a playoff spot in 2018, they must sign one of two quarterbacks from the free agent market. The Broncos don't need to make the same ridiculous mistake the Bears did last offseason by signing Mike Glennon for way too much money just to delay the start of their new era at the position.
Broncos president of football operations John Elway said at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team had the salary-cap flexibility to do any deal and would consider any quarterback on the open market.
