My point was that if I'm cousins, I don't want to be the guy that a team is getting smart on when I'm actually pretty good.
Even the jets tried to get smart on Fitzpatrick last year, but caved. So if your Cousins and you're seeing every qb with a pulse getting paid, I can see why he'd be pissed if all the sudden he can't get paid.
That's independent of whether it's a good investment for the redskins. By nfl standards, he's done more than enough to earn the money
Well, they franchised him last year. so he was getting paid. A lot.
but it was only a 1 year deal.
I'm not sure that the team is opposed to 18-20 mil. Even at 21 Mil, I dont know that the team would waffle.
But if Cousins is asking for much more than that, its getting questionable whether the team should cough it up.
That places him in the top 6 and all of them (with the exception of Flacco) are (in my opinion) better than him.
Even if they dont put up the same stats, they are winners.
Top 6 salares:
Luck 24.6 mil
Brees 24.3 mil
Flacco 22.1 mil
Rodgers 22 mil
Russell Wilson 21.9 mil
Rothlisberger 21.85 mil
With the exception of Luck, all have won a superbowl.
Truly He belongs with the next 3-4 QB's on the list
Palmer, Eli Maning, Rivers, and Newton all make between 20.5 and 21 mil. and I think Cousins fits in that range or slightly below as.
If he is asking for much more than that, he's dumb.
and honestly, 21 mil is a nice payday if hes on a 4 or 5 year deal. After all, he has never won a playoff game in his career which (in my opinion) sets him slightly below the players in the 21 mil tier. But I do see him eventually leading his team to the playoffs, so it makes some sense to include him in this tier. But I wouldnt put him in the top Tier. He does not deserve to be there.
