Yes, it would cost the Kansas City Chiefs quit a bit to sign Kirk Cousins. Yes, it is unclear just how good he really is. However, I have liked what I’ve seen from the former 4th-round pick, and I’m buying into him as an NFL franchise quarterback. So if the Chiefs are serious about upgrading the quarterback position, I am on board with Cousins being that option.
Kirk Cousins has shown a lot in his young NFL career. Pairing him up with a coach with Andy Reid’s reputation for developing quarterbacks, and this could be a very dangerous offense. The only real trick here is the financials of the deal. If you’re bringing in Cousins, then both Alex Smith and Nick Foles have got to go. Even then, it would be tough for the Chiefs to work with some other key free agents.
The Fans Speak
Unfortunately, Kirk Cousins is probably the least readily available option for the Chiefs this offseason. While the two sides don’t seem to be making any headway, I really do not see a scenario where the Redskins let Cousins walk. It just wouldn’t make any sense. Especially with what is viewed by most to be a weak quarterback class.
In all reality, Alex Smith is very likely to be the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017. Everything we have heard from the Chiefs leadership points to that being the case. Furthermore, there really are not many options out there that could be categorized as “better” that Alex Smith. It may not be what Chiefs fans want to hear, but it’s going to be tough to find a better answer.
