QB Kirk Cousins could get massive offer from Arizona Cardinals

Thank you all for the opportunity you gave me.

The video offers a glimpse of Cousins' off-season rhythm and lifestyle, living with his in-laws, working out, fatherhood and his life in general.

When the blog post originally went up earlier Monday, only two of his potential suitors were tagged at the bottom: the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Jets. They have since been removed. Either 1) Cousins is a smokescreening master who has heard the rumors about what teams want to sign him and understands that by putting this out there on the first day of legal tampering that he's managing to strike some fear into the hearts of the Broncos and Cardinals thereby potentially driving up his already astronomical price, or 2) Whoops. Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings have a decision to make a quarterback. They also boast a talented defense (even with the loss of cornerback Aqib Talib), feature a pair of Pro Bowl receivers in Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and have a Hall of Fame quarterback in John Elway calling the shots.

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. It's also certainly possible that if the Vikings' whiff on Cousins, they could circle back on one of those guys. No such visit has been scheduled with the Broncos yet, though it's not to say it won't in the coming days.

That move effectively pushed Cousins into free agency after six years with the team that drafted him.

Before that process gets under way in earnest, Cousins posted a note of appreciation to Washington Redskins fans, coaches and the front office for their support during his six years in Washington. This has created speculation that the former Washington Redskins starter will be highly pursued by several quarterback-needy teams across the league over the next few weeks.

While the football world waits for Kirk Cousins to decide his future, the free-agent quarterback is filming it.

So even if Minnesota and NY are in fact Cousins' preferred landing spots, the Broncos have options and have been weighing each carefully.
