Kirk Cousins pens emotional letter to Redskins fans

Kirk Cousins pens emotional letter to Redskins fans

For the Broncos, that's if they miss out on the Cousins Sweepstakes.

Other teams may have made a phone call and/or placed a ballpark number on the table, but the thinking is that the Jets and Vikings are the two truly serious candidates for Cousins' services. 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. At the time, many people saw his selection as foolish.

The Jets having interest in McCown is not surprising, as the veteran signal caller was having the best season of his career past year before getting injured with three games to go.

"I am filled with gratitude over the unwavering support and devotion from you, the fans, both on and off the field", Cousins wrote.

If the Broncos had that kind of quarterback play past year, I don't think we'd be talking about a five-win team. It comes at the start of the free-agency negotiation window on Monday during which Cousins and every other free agent can start to (legally) shop themselves on the open market. "I'm all in 100 percent", Miller said of signing Cousins, in an interview with NFL.com. But a definitive group of targeted teams has never been revealed by Cousins or his agent. But Denver's list of options is likely to include AJ McCarron, who was with coach Vance Joseph in Cincinnati when Joseph was their defensive backs coach. This has created speculation that the former Washington Redskins starter will be highly pursued by several quarterback-needy teams across the league over the next few weeks.

Over the last several weeks, there has been plenty of talk surrounding Pro Bowl quarterback Kirk Cousins as he ventures into free agency for the first time in his career.

"We all understand on how the quarterback position has a direct influence on how your team plays", Joseph said in February.

Of course, money isn't the only variable that will factor into Cousins' decision.
