Kirk Cousins Tags Two Possible Landing Spots In Farewell Post To Redskins

Why Teddy Bridgewater isn’t the solution the Jets need

"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 said.

In his blog post, the quarterback was downright sentimental about the organization that took a chance on him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft. At the time, many people saw his selection as foolish.

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

That suggests it may be Thursday, or later, before a decision is reached on where Cousins will play after spending the first six years of his career in Washington - the first four under a rookie deal that paid him roughly $600,000 per year and the last two under back-to-back National Football League franchise tags worth a total of roughly $44 million. "I'm all in 100 percent", Miller said of signing Cousins, in an interview with

According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets could offer Cousins a five-year $150 million deal with most of that guaranteed, and as much as $60 million guaranteed in the first year.

It's exceedingly rare for an elite QB to move teams as a free agent, especially in the prime of their careers, but such a move would give them more leverage in contract negotiations.

The Vikings, Jets, Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals are believed to be the four expected finalists for Cousins. But a definitive group of targeted teams has never been revealed by Cousins or his agent. They also boast a talented defense (even with the loss of cornerback Aqib Talib), feature a pair of Pro Bowl receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and have a Hall of Fame quarterback in John Elway calling the shots.

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. No such visit has been scheduled with the Broncos yet, though it's not to say it won't in the coming days.

"After calling Washington home for the past six years, the team has chose to move on to another option and, in turn, my family and I will be moving on as well", Cousins wrote in his seven-paragraph blog post on his website,, that was titled, "Farewell, Washington". But is he the franchise quarterback these teams so desperately need?

It should be only a matter of time before Kirk Cousins finds a new home, but the veteran quarterback might already have given us a preview of what's to come.
