Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins recently said that the four teams he was interested in in free agency were the Vikings, Jets, Cardinals, and Broncos. He has now narrowed his list down to the Vikings and Jets, per Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller.
Miller went on to say during his Stick To Football podcast that the Jets are in the driver’s seat to land Cousins. Brian Costello of the New York Post said that New York could offer Cousins an amount in the range of a five-year, $150 million deal.
The Jets have been looking for an answer at QB ever since the Mark Sanchez experiment went wrong. Geno Smith didn’t work out either so Cousins could finally be the answer for New York to return to the playoffs.
The Vikings could also be an ideal situation for Cousins simply for the fact that they are still Super Bowl contenders. Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater used to start for Minnesota until he suffered a severe leg injury before the 2016 season so he will look to get an opportunity elsewhere. Case Keenum had a breakout year for the team as he lead them to the NFC Championship Game last season so he will attempt to earn a big contract somwhere else.
