Redskins' Gruden on Cousins: 'It's time for us to move on ...'

Redskins' Gruden on Cousins: 'It's time for us to move on ...'

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals are one of the top teams to land Cousins.

If he had been tagged for a third straight year, Washington would have tried to trade Cousins, to receive a larger package back than the compensatory pick they will get in 2019. He had 4,093 passing yards to go with 27 touchdowns against 13 interceptions this season.

The Kirk Cousins sweepstakes is already sizzling, even though technically teams can not talk about a contract at this time.

Here are some suggested acquisitions the Skins can make once free agency starts on March 14.

"Whether it's a pro free agent or a college player, the goal is to find that quarterback that you feel very comfortable with to lead your franchise going forward", New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said.

How would the Broncos address their top needs if this year's draft was the only way they could do it? But with one year left on his contract and a four-year extension waiting for him, Smith, at age 34, ensures that stability the organization has sought since the Cousins negotiations went sideways. We have great quarterbacks now. Since becoming the Redskins' full-time starter prior to the 2015 season, Cousins has thrown for more than 4,000 yards and 25 touchdowns in each of the past three years.

"It's a long process and having those quarterbacks on our [Senior Bowl North] team was obviously a good thing", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said.

The Browns, after passing up Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two National Football League drafts, have the first and fourth overall selections in this draft as they attempt to rebuild from a winless season.

The Patriots were one of the teams interested in Anderson along with the Dolphins and Bears last season when he was a restricted free agent in 2016.

Signing Cousins isn't a certainty but the Jets can help their cause with a better team around him.
