On Monday, the NFL Network reported that at least two teams are prepared to offer Cousins a three-year, fully guaranteed contract and one other team is willing to come close to a fully guaranteed deal. They have been connected to Kirk Cousins since it became clear that Cousins wouldn't be back in Washington. "He's the person that everyone is most interested in seeing what he's going to do". "... No words will express the depth of my gratitude, but "thank you" will have to do for now". 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.

Cousins, formerly of the Washington Redskins, will be eligible to sign with a new team from 9pm GMT on March 14.

Teams were permitted to contact Cousins' agent Mike McCartney on Monday.

The feeling is all they need to get over the hump is good quarterback play. The 38-year-old Palmer was named to the Pro Bowl three times, but his 2017 season was cut short by a broken arm that limited him to seven games.

Earlier reports claimed Cousins would take at least one visit, it not two, when free agency began to determine the best fit. Case Keenum, who previously played for Gary Kubiak in Houston, is No. 2 on many teams' lists.

With the cap space they have, the Broncos can invest in other younger players in free agency that can help their team now and into the future, and surround whatever rookie quarterback they draft with the best talent possible.

The stars perhaps didn't align just right for Denver this time around for Kirk Cousins like they did for Peyton Manning.

The Jets having interest in McCown is not surprising, as the veteran signal caller was having the best season of his career previous year before getting injured with three games to go. The Big Four would have a chance to eventually develop into a franchise-type quarterback but it's hard for any team to reach the playoffs with a rookie quarterback.
