Cardinals reportedly a finalist for QB Kirk Cousins

Cousins has called Washington home for the past six seasons and played under the Redskins' franchise tag the last two years. The Vikings, who came just one game short of the Super Bowl last season, are quickly being viewed as the best bet to land Cousins.

There are so many factors at play for the Jets as they prepare for free agency and the quarterback position is vital for their improvement.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, several teams are interested in taking on Teddy Bridgewater as starting quarterback.

The 29-year-old's time in Washington likely is running short, however, after the Redskins agreed to a deal with fellow quarterback Alex Smith on January 30. Though he is 38-years old, and going to be an unrestricted free agent, head coach Anthony Lynn stated he has a role with the team, so you can expect him back next season. Both parties must wait until the free agency period opens on March 14th to officially sign the contract. This would mean neither the Browns or Bills will go after Cousins. Despite what you may think about the Redskins front office, the Kirk Cousins situation or the obvious flaws in the agreement, it's hard to argue that the trade itself is 100 percent bad. 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.

The Thursday report suggested that McMaster will soon be replaced by Ford executive Stephen Biegun, who served in the George W. Fin formerly worked as the Miami Bureau Producer for Fox News Channel where he covered Florida Politics & Latin America.

You also look at the running game where Bilal Powell led the Jets with career highs in rushing yards (772) and touchdowns (five) last season.

"The final four teams expected to be vying for free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins are the Broncos, Cardinals, Jets and Vikings, per league sources".

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

Denver now has the No. 5 overall selection in the first round along with selection No. 40 in the second round.
