Von Miller openly recruits Kirk Cousins to the Broncos

After trading for veteran quarterback Alex Smith, the Washington Redskins have officially signalled the end of the Kirk Cousins era. The team has been unwilling to sign Cousins to a long-term deal for the past few years. Now it seems as though they’re content with moving forward with Smith rather than Cousins under center for the foreseeable future. With Cousins now almost certainly moving forward, the Denver Broncos have become a likely destination for the 29-year-old gunslinger.

Denver has one of the best defenses in the NFL. As well as a front office determined to right the ship, especially at the quarterback position. Von Miller, arguably the team’s face of the franchise, has been openly recruiting Cousins to the Broncos as he made clear on the Dan Patrick Show, transcription via Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk.

“He knows exactly how I feel about Kirk Cousins and what he’d mean to our team,” Miller said. “And what he would mean to a lot of other teams. He’s the hot quarterback on the market right now. … Yeah, we need Kirk. We need Kirk. I’d like to have Kirk. We have great quarterbacks now. Kirk could take us over the edge.”




With Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, and Brock Osweiler not panning out, Cousins is the obvious choice, especially if John Elway intends to upgrade in free agency rather than rolling the dice in the NFL Draft once again.

If the Broncos manage to convince Cousins to sign with the team, Denver’s odds to win it all or at least make the NFL playoffs will greatly increase. Elway’s squad would quickly become a force again if Cousins is under center next season.
