Seems to me that Cousins would be going for a mega contract. Similar to what Stafford and Carr got. If giving him that kind of contract means gutting the defense, I'd be totally against that. Cousins isn't good enough to mask major holes on a roster.

The market for QBs is way out of whack, and teams who make 2nd tier QBs the highest paid QBs in the league, or near the top, always regret it.
I dont think we'd have to gut the defense to sign Cousins. Maybe cut/trade Talib but thats about it i could see as far as players on defense gone to get him.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden has mild praise for Kirk Cousins

"It's hard to say, 'Wow, this guy really was outstanding,'" Gruden said, speaking in general. "Kirk had his flashes where he was really good. From a consistent standpoint, over the course of 16 games, we're 7-9. He did some great things, threw for over 4,000 yards and [27] touchdowns. He's a very, very good quarterback without a doubt, but as far as getting us over the hump from 7-9 to winning the division with all the injuries we had, he competed and did some good things."

Cousins threw for 4,093 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions on an offense that did not have its primary target, tight end Jordan Reed, for 10 games. The Redskins also lost running back Chris Thompson and left tackle Trent Williams for six games apiece.
