Giants given 20/1 odds to sign QB Kirk Cousins

In fact, reports surfaced on Monday that the New York Jets are willing to pay "whatever it takes" to sign Cousins to a long-term deal.

The game plan: It's simple: Get Cousins.

The New York Jets now have a quarterback carousel that includes Bryce Petty, Christian Hackenberg, Josh McCown, and Joel Stave.

If quarterback Kirk Cousins doesn't end up with the Jets, it will have nothing to do with money. The Redskins, who recently traded for quarterback Alex Smith, could put a franchise tag on Cousins for next year at $35.4 million to prevent him from becoming a free agent. "If the Jets will do it, other suitors for Cousins may have no choice but to follow suit".

But there's even more potential madness to Cousins' offer.

A $60 million cap hit in the first year of a deal would be wildly unprecedented in the NFL - Jimmy Garoppolo just set the high water mark a few weeks ago when his extension with the Niners included $37 million against the cap for San Francisco in 2018.

This means that if Minnesota wants any kind of shot in having Cousins as the starter that they will need to make a very attractive offer as well as make the case that the Vikings are a much better situation if he wants to win a Super Bowl.

According to overthecap.com, the Jets have $73.2 million in available cap space, which is the fourth most of any team in the National Football League this offseason.

In addition to the Jets, teams like the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns and Minnesota Vikings are all interested in the 29-year old QB.
