In just two days time, the Denver Broncos have gone from third best odds to the odds-on favorites.
Well, Mr. Raider fan, jokes on you for now. In just two days time, the Broncos have risen the top contender for the services of one Kirk Cousins.
- Broncos -150
- Jets +300
- Browns +400
- Cardinals +500
- Bills +1000
- Giants +2000
- Jaguars +2000
- Dolphins +2000
Bovada has the Broncos (3/2) as favorite to land Kirk Cousins. Then Jets (2-1) and Cards/Browns (4/1). Bills at 9-1. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) February 1, 2018
Why am I picking on Oakland Raiders fans and bloggers? Because they know Cousins would immediately put the Broncos back into contention and he would likely be the best quarterback in the division for a long time.
Don’t believe me? The stats kind of speak for themselves.
Both Philip Rivers and Alex Smith are coming off career years. I’d probably still rank Rivers ahead of Cousins, but he is an aging veteran who is getting closer and closer to that cliff.
This is why I am personally all-in on Cousins being quarterback of the Denver Broncos in 2018 and beyond. He provides the Broncos with instant competitive dominance in the division for the next half decade and that will be worth every penny the Broncos would potentially sign him for.
The next step for John Elway will be to keep the competitive talent on the roster strong after signing a guy like Cousins. That’s the hard part of the equation, since it will involve drafting much better than Elway and his front office has so far.
