Kirk Cousins may be too rich for the Cardinals' blood

Kirk Cousins may be too rich for the Cardinals' blood”

"I don't think so", Doug Williams said of doing such a move. "But it's not too late". "We haven't really talked about that".

If Cousins didn't sign the franchise tender, Washington would be unable to trade him and he would cost $34.5 million on the cap. However, Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports Station 98.7 suggested that the Cardinals may not be viewed as being a serious suitor for the 29-year-old due to their inability at this point to offer him a lucrative deal in comparison to the other teams that will be in the hunt. He's the best quarterback on the market and over the last three seasons, he's averaged 4,392 passing yards and 27 touchdowns per season.

Overall, Cousins will do what makes sense for him but it's great to know he'll be visiting many teams before making his final decision.

Additionally, as per the Washington Post, Cousins has reportedly said he will file a grievance through the National Football League players' union in a bid to force his way out of the capital. "It hasn't worked out". But apparently that's sometimes not always the case.

So why did the Redskins prefer Smith to Cousins? We can't afford to let it come to the twelfth hour and Kirk decides not to come back or what have you and leave us with the bag.

Cousins is expected to be among this year's most coveted free agents.

"It's about winning", Williams said.

"You've got to look at it from the standpoint, Kirk has been there for - what? - six years, and I'm sure there have been opportunities that deals could have been worked out". This is a team sport. I'm not saying giving a hometown discount or anything like that, but you've got to be real about the team, too. "Because if you get all the money, and then you've got nobody around you to play with, then what good is playing?"
