Kirk Cousins thanks Redskins, fans for last six seasons

Kirk Cousins of the Redskins looks to pass

"The Vikings told Teddy Bridgewater at the Combine last weekend that they intend to pursue Cousins, per a league source, but that Bridgewater remains a viable backup plan". Keenum is more hard to judge, but the $16 million to $20 million-a-year should cover it.

As the beginning of free agency draws closer, some of the NFL's top players are stepping up their public recruitment of coveted quarterback Kirk Cousins. Denver is one above-average quarterback away from making a serious playoff run, but they are focusing in on Cousins to lead the way as their gunslinger.

Call me insane, but $91 million for Kirk Cousins just seems ludicrous.

There are other free-agent quarterback options.

Oddly enough, these performances came when Keenum accepted a role as a backup quarterback behind veteran passer Sam Bradford.

Cousins has thrown for over 4,000 yards in each of his last three seasons, tossing 81 touchdowns during that time. "Coach Gruden, Bruce Allen, Dan Snyder", Cousins said. Could they convince Jerick McKinnon to return?

The price to get McCarron would have to be substantially lower than Keenum or Cousins to justify prioritizing him, but it is a name to watch for.

Washington in those three seasons went 9-7, which was good enough for a playoff wild-card berth, 8-7-1 and 7-9. After struggling for the Rams, Keenum thrived last season for the Vikings. But the Pro Bowl QB may benefit from Washington's decision. Cousins surely was sifting through the offers from teams Monday, trying to figure out what his first choice would be. McCown would not be an expensive signing for the Jets, who could look to spend the money elsewhere.

We all know McCarron would not likely be the next franchise quarterback in Denver, or at least, he wouldn't be paid like that. Mike Jurecki reports the contract details are for five years at $145 million dollars, which averages out to $29 million dollars a season.

The letter appears on Cousins' personal website,, so it's about as legit as you're going to get.
