The best way to a man like Kirk Cousins' heart is through his stomach.
Smith got less in guarantees than Cousins, so that should give the Redskins a bit more flexibility.
He has planned on making visits before signing any contract.
Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins. And on his side of the equation, what are Kirk Cousins' priorities when determining his next team? And the Jets - unlike the Broncos and Cardinals - have a boatload of cap space to make Cousins an offer he can't refuse.
But despite all the good that came with Keenum, he never provided the Vikings with a sense of security, and the clues were everywhere. "Cousins, Vikings have mutual interest".
"I haven't had the chance to pick where I'm going to play since 2007 when I chose to go to Michigan State, so I'm looking forward to that opportunity", Cousins said in Minnesota the week of the Super Bowl during an appearance on SiriusXM satellite radio. What's up with that?

Gopher Women's Basketball coach Marlene Stollings is inviting everyone to a watch party Monday night, to see if her crew gets an invite to the NCAAs. Agree with that or not, it was his prerogative as head coach. It wasn't hard to connect the dots from a season's worth of uncertainty surrounding the quarterback, despite how well he played, in determining that Keenum's run in Minneapolis was going to be short-lived.
