Kirk Cousins is reportedly down to Vikings, Jets, Cardinals, Broncos

While Larry Fitzgerald routinely finds himself on the other end of throws, the decorated Arizona Cardinals wide receiver reportedly made his best pitch to Kirk Cousins when the two had an impromptu meeting at an Atlanta airport.

The Vikings, like the Jets, do not need to make any moves in order to create enough space to sign Cousins to a reasonable contract. This hasn't prevented Cousins from ruling the Jets out.

Cravens was rumored to be the subject of trade talks between the Redskins and Denver Broncos on Wednesday, according to a report by the NFL Network.

"We've been doing a lot of work on [the quarterbacks], but we still have a lot of work to do", Elway said. "If it comes via pro free agency or the college draft, when it's all said and done we don't really have a preference either way. But we'll see how they play out". Running back David Johnson is awesome and Larry Fitzgerald is one of the best receivers in the game, but there's a lot of questions outside of that. But Cousins could also see a windfall of up to $150 million over five years with $95 million in guarantees.

The Vikings are in the mix for Cousins because all three of their quarterbacks - Sam Bradford, Case Keenum, and Teddy Bridgewater - are going to hit free agency. Included are Smith's numbers this past season, when he was the NFL's top-rated passer with a 104.7 rating, and set career records with 4,042 yards and 26 touchdown passes. They did it without their starting quarterback, starting running back, three starting offensive linemen and two defensive starters.

Free agency might help improve the position and the franchise is interested in Damien Williams, who played with the Dolphins last season.

They also can give Cousins one of the deepest toyboxes in the National Football League, pairing him with Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph and more.

"Kirk wants to do what's best for his family and we're trying to do what's best for our organization and our team", Gruden said. "Obviously some people were injured [guard Brian Winters] and playing hurt".

"I think it's a strong class", Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said. Cousins will become a free agent on that day as well.
