Jets opening the bank for Cousins seems very Jets-like

Jets may be willing to give Kirk Cousins a fully-guaranteed contract

The New York Jets have an opportunity to acquire a franchise quarterback for the first time in what feels like eons given the depth of talent set to come out of the National Football League draft this spring and the free-agent market of passers set to be available.

As King mentions, one potential issue with signing Cousins could mean Denver has to sacrifice some of the players that have made their defense one of the best in the NFL.

Cousins probably wants to follow fellow quarterbacks like Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo when it comes to fresh contracts - both were signed to five-year deals worth $125 and $137.5 million, respectively.

The Jets now have $70 million of cap space to offer a long-term contract to Cousins that could match the likes of what Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck and money man Jimmy G have been paid recently.

As the Daily News has reported, Cousins would be an ideal fit for new Jets offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, who will use many elements of mentor Mike Shanahan's scheme.

The signal caller even recently praised Bates and the Jets' promotion of him from QBs coach. "He's about ball and that's what matters to him".

When asked if DCF let Cruz slip through the cracks, a spokeswoman responded , "No, DCF did not drop the ball". Officials said the FBI Miami Field Office should have been contacted, but it wasn't. "We just didn't know".

"I don't know what Alex as a leadership standpoint brings, but I hear he is a great player".

With that being said, this would not be a smart move for the Jets.

Perhaps the team is already zeroed in on a quarterback and they're ready to turn the keys over.

If the Redskins do franchise tag Cousins for the third consecutive year, despite having their franchise quarterback in place, the quarterback is expected to file a grievance to block the tag, per Albert Breer. The 2018 Jets likely won't be a playoff contender with Cousins, either. Sure. Is it the only thing?

Cousins has been tagged by the Redskins for the past two seasons and have failed to negotiate a long term contract extension. "Because I've been franchise-tagged twice, I've been in a position where it's not about the money so much; it's about winning".
