Denver Broncos: In Free Agent QB race, losing may be winning

Share

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. "Gratitude" and "happy" both make sense but are wholly unnecessary if you're trying to really manage tags efficiently.

Also due to become free agents are Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota's starting quarterback in 2014 and 2015, and Sam Bradford, the starter in 2016. Could he be better than what the Broncos had last season?

If the Broncos, general manager John Elway and Joseph want to turn it around right now, they have but two choices.

Cousins feels rejected after he and the Redskins failed to reach a contract agreement in 2016.

Tariffs can be a powerful tool to address inequities by countries that are not playing by the rules. The government mounted a multi-pronged campaign to secure the exemptions on tariffs.

That would make his average annual salary $29 million, surpassing Jimmy Garoppolo's average annual value and making Cousins the highest-paid player in National Football League history.

Last year Cousins threw for 4,093 yards with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions for the Washington Redskins.

Arizona is expected to offer him a contract of five years and $145 million in total (an average of $29 million per year).

The former Pro Bowler will likely face pressure from fellow players to take the guarenteed money on offer, as the move would dramatically alter the future of free agency for elite players and quarterbacks in particular.

He will either sign another deal with the Cavaliers, or go to the Los Angeles Lakers , Houston Rockets or the Philadelphia 76ers . James could leave Cleveland as a free agent this summer and the Lakers are tipped to land the 14-time NBA All Star.

The consensus among the national media is Cousins will replace Keenum in Minnesota and the Broncos are the favorite to land Keenum. The Jets, on the other hand, went 5-11 last season and will therefore pick sixth in the upcoming NFL Draft. They have a left tackle in D.J. Humphries.

They're all first-round worthy, if none approach the can't-miss caliber of an Andrew Luck or Carson Wentz.

"We all understand on how the quarterback position has a direct influence on how your team plays", Joseph said in February. "The most any quarterback has ever seen, there's no doubt about that".

Kirk Cousins would put the Broncos in contention in my opinion, even if it's just on a three-year contract and a short window.
