That deal is expected to be for three years and $84 million, a "landmark" that would make Cousins the highest-paid quarterback in the league, according to sources. Washington acquired quarterback Alex Smith in a trade with Kansas City in January.
Cousins played football in high school at Holland Christian in MI. While the Chiefs seem to be in total rebuild on defense, they do present a formidable offense. And it should be noted that the Broncos' best quarterbacks have largely arrived from somewhere else.
After sitting out the playoffs in each of the last two years following their Super Bowl 50 triumph, the Denver Broncos have apparently found their next signal-caller. If Bradford could stay healthy I do believe that they'd have kept him this off-season. Free agents can begin signing with teams at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
Despite the hefty price tag that comes with landing the league's top free agent, Minnesota has a chance to finally land a franchise quarterback.
The Redskins overall had a disappointing season in 2017 at 7-9. And yet. Cousins' skill set looked more developed as a full-time starter over the past three seasons, throwing for at least 4,000 yards and 25 TDs and completing at least 64.3 percent of his passes each year during that span. Keenum?
If Brees hits free agency (and again, I never expected we'd be talking about it at this late date), even at age 39 he is the surest, safest best they have, and the Purple should do everything they can to get him.
The reality is that it appears until we are explicitly told otherwise, they will pursue Cousins. Not only is he going to be a cheap option, but he would fit perfectly into the defensive scheme with his ability to both shut receivers down and make plays on the football.
Outside of the Vikings, there are quite a few teams that could use a player like Williams.
